Run Android Apps on Non-Android Devices Using Myriad Alien Dalvik

myriad_logoMyriad Alien Dalvik brings Android applications to non-Android devices, allowing OEMs, operators and application stores to leverage the Android eco-system across a much wider range of mobile devices. Android applications run unmodified and with no loss of performance on non- Android platforms.

We have already written about BlueStacks software which is used to run Android OS and apps on Windows PCs with instant switch between Android and Windows.

Alien Dalvik 2.0 enables developers to create once and use many times, while allowing operators, OEMs, and even enterprise to streamline app rollout – taking the headache out of platform fragmentation and content management.

From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik 2.0 is completely transparent and installed without user disruption. Users simply enjoy the same rich Android ecosystem they have become accustomed to via mobile on other key screens, such as playing Angry Birds on HDTV. This all while gaining faster access to a wider range of apps, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.


  • Access thousands of Android applications: Building on Dalvik Turbo technology, Alien Dalvik enables Android applications to operate on non- Android devices. By extending Android to other platforms, Myriad Alien Dalvik is opening up the ecosystem even further, while creating new audiences and revenue opportunities. Alien Dalvik is also ideal for OEMs and operators who have invested in specific Android applications and wish to deploy these across all device models.
  • [advt]Highly Optimised: Thanks to Myriad’s deep expertise in Java and Android technology, ported applications demonstrate no loss of performance compared to the application running in the native environment. This has been made possible through a very tight integration of the Android runtime and the use of Myriad Dalvik Turbo technology.
  • Deploy immediately: Alien Dalvik enables the majority of Android applications to run unmodified, allowing application store owners to quickly kick start services by simply repackaging the Android Package (APK) files. For applications that are very device-dependent, the modification process is simple and straightforward through Myriad’s plugin to Android SDK.
  • Seamless User experience: From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik is completely transparent where ported applications appear as native and can be seamlessly installed on the user’s device without user disruption. All the user sees is that he now has access to a wider range of applications, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.
