MechDome wants to bring Android apps to Windows 10

A company named MechDome says it is bringing Android apps to Windows 10 without any changes to the apps’ source codes, and that the converted APKs will run on all Windows 10 smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

According to the company, users will be able to convert Android apps to run natively on Windows and any converted Android apps will automatically use Windows Notifications and open the Edge browser when running on Windows 10.

If you are thinking, “We have heard this before,” you are not alone. I thought the same thing too when I saw MechDome’s statement of intent. However, MechDome already offers a service that converts Android apps for use on iOS, so there might be some merit in this. How does it work?

Android app developers will simply upload their compiled Android app (APK) to MechDome, which coes the automatic conversion to a native iOS app, optimized to run on their selected platform. They then download the iOS app and distribute it to users.

It sounds simple, straightforward, and fast. The Windows version will work in a similar way to produce Windows apps from existing Android apps.

Android Apps To Windows 10: But To What End?

What would be the use of this conversion process? Windows Mobile platform is practically dead and no-one is making any new Windows smartphones. Only two Windows smartphones were shipped in all of 2017.

But there are still millions of Windows PC and tablet users. Some of them are interested in running some Android apps on those platforms. As such, while this is practically useless for mobile, it has a market in PCs and tablets.
