    Thank you Sean. I have an other old DOS application where it could eventually be of interest to get it running on the pad.

    Do you, Sean, or someone else on NavList have experience with the Limbo PC Emulator which supposedly allows running older Windows-versions on Android?

    I don't know, but I've been using "aDosBox" for a little while now and I like it. The UI is a little awkward, but it works for ICE. There are six programmable on screen buttons which I have set to F1, F2, F6, F7, F8 and F10. There's an on screen button to bring up the default keyboard for typing. aDosBox also has a "smooth" option which makes the tiny text readable on my tiny phone (but only just). Unfortunately there is no zoom.

    Other than that it works just like its desktop cousin, even outputting text files. I must admit that I haven't tried any others.

    Regards,


    Sean C.
