In the Android Forum viewforum.php?f=73 you will see a sticky post at the top viewtopic.php?f=73&t=71658 titled "THERE CURRENTLY IS NO WORKING ANDROID FOR PI !", which pretty much sums it up.6. WILL IT RUN ANDROID?
No. While a version of Android can be found in the forum, it is not stable enough for everyday use. There are no plans to continue working on it, as Android does not provide any enhancement to educational purposes that are not already fulfilled more readily with existing software – we see it as a platform for consumption, not creation
No. But there are apps intended for communicating with a Pi. WebIOPi, for example. I haven't used any myself, apart from some Bluetooth terminal apps (not Pi-specific).rpdom wrote:There is no supported Android for the Pi.
You can talk about interfacing the pi to android and the android to the pi, it's just that since they don't have android for the pi, asking that question again and again is about as interesting as, "I changed my /etc/network/interface file to work with a static ip but it's not working for some reason." Or the other one, "I just installed Jessie and my sdcard is 64 gigs, why does it say it's out of space?"CaptSunset wrote:I was browsing around the Google PlayStore because when I'd looked for a Kodi remote there, I noticed several other Raspberry Pi apps for ssh and such.
There are quite a few there, and it made me wonder if any are recommended by you guys here.
(It also made me wonder why Android, as a close relative in the Arm family, is almost never mentioned while win10 has become nearly acceptable to discuss...
Geez, I didn't even attack you and you are wounded. I come from usenet, social skills weren't needed there, but come on, you are being too sensitive.CaptSunset wrote:stderr... apparently you need to improve your both your reading and social skills
OK, just to be clear- these are apps that run on Android tablets and talk to the Pi; they don't run on the Pi... I wasn't interested in installing Android on my Pi's, but in running timelapse cameras headless from my tablet.
Why not install some and see what they do? I use the Raspicam app on my Hudl2.CaptSunset wrote:OK, just to be clear- these are apps that run on Android tablets and talk to the Pi; they don't run on the Pi...

Oops, as pointed out by a friendly poster, that should say "meant", not "mean". Quite a humorous typo though...jamesh wrote:And....any more of this and the thread gets closed.
So, some interesting facts:
No-one know what percentage of Pi are used by adults, and which by children. No-one.
Also, no-one knows what the ages of people posting on here are. This entire site is mean for children and adults alike, which is why there is no bad language, and any trolling or rudeness or similar is stomped on quickly.
Education is not limited to children. I learn something almost every day.
Mods only move threads when they are reported, they generally don't do it off their own back. So this thread was reported, then moved to off topic. Which in my mind it mostly is.
If you have a problem with a post REPORT IT. The mods cannot read every post, so they have to be reactively moderated.
I have no idea what some random Kickstarter guys or other people know about Pi usage and who cares anyway?...according to PiJuice's Kickstarter survey, something like 85% of Pi's are owned by 'adult' techie types.
I'd say the percentage of adult posters here on the Foundation forums is closer to 99%.
It would be awesome if my school would get pi's. They'd rather get 50 chrome books that don't work half the time. We could get an update to the computer apps class. Our computer books are only 25 or so years out of date (and I'm not kidding). The pi's could help the students actually learn to program and get a close up view of how a computer works. What's sad is my dad's old hp pavilion ze4900 is way more updated than our computer apps computers. Pi's could teach students how to use a command line instead of well all gui. I start using my command line and everyone thinks I'm hacking the CIA when I'm just updating my computer.kusti8 wrote:Most people here are adults, but that is not a valid determiner for the Pi popularity in education. Most of the regulars here answering questions have knowledge and time to answer the questions, while most kids don't. Buy I have seen plenty of kids here asking questions (I am one myself).
I convinced my local school to buy 25 raspberry pis to teach programming which is working out great. That then influenced another school to do the same and I know a few schools which already have Raspberry Pis. In our case, it provides a nice portal into learning to programming and has definately achieved it's educational goals.
Do we ?...we need to do more to engage better with women and people outisde of the computing/software/electronics world...
