Status of Android Applications

From Joggler
Jump to: navigation, search

Now that we have the android market working on the joggler, and the other apps stores, its worth noting that many many apps work absolutely fine on the joggler. The ones that dont often dont work because they need access to the Android NDK (ARM) (the Joggler is android x86) or because they work in portait mode only..

So therefore instead of listing apps which work, we've decided to list apps which are recommended, work-with-issues or dont work..
