Can You Run WP Apps on Android, Just Like How Nokia Did?!

without comments

Nokia-XL-Dual-SIM-MixRadioEver since the company has announced it’s X series of smartphone running forked versions of Android, we all are left wondering about how Nokia got the WP specific Nokia Apps like Here Maps, Mix Radio, etc.

Clearly Nokia did not re-write the entire codes, what Nokia did was to use a special bit of software from a company called Xamarin that basically lets Windows Phone app run on Android. amarin are a company that specialize in bringing Microsoft’s .NET Framework to other platforms besides Windows. Its aim is to allow developers to write apps entirely in C# and share the same code on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.

Now that the Mix Radio app is running, Microsoft is looking forward to remove all legacy code from apps that it wants to port over to Android, so future apps will have the same shared code database!

Would you want to have more such apps on your Droid?
