Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, which commonly runs on Android phones and tablets.
Status of ImageJ on Android
The Android operating system uses a modified version of the Java virtual machine. So in principle, running ImageJ on Android devices is feasible. However, running ImageJ on Android does not currently work, because:
- ImageJ 1.x uses AWT, which is not available on Android
- ImageJ2 was built with a separation of concerns in mind (see Architecture page for technical details), but there is no infrastructure in place to ensure that all ImageJ2 APIs are Android-compatible. It would be a feasible project, but potentially a lot of work, to do that. The community would welcome efforts in this direction!
