Can you run LTspice on a cellphone?

Started by Steve Wilson June 11, 2021
A google search shows a number of ways of running MS programs on android 
cellphones. One method suggests running Wine, then you can load whatever EXE 
desired.

Has anyone been able to run LTspice on android? How did you do it, and how 
well does it work?

Thanks,

Android runs Java. I don't think WinE works on Java.

which are Java apps, not Win apps on WinE.

you don't have to run java on android, it is basically linux. But there are very few if any cellphones with a an x86 cpu

Android runs ARM, which emulates X86. Obviously a bit slower, but it works. -- The best designs occur in the theta state. - sw
As the other posts suggest, maybe there is no interest.

Perhaps partly because smartphones suck for energy hungry applications.

Your phone muct be half a decade old then because modern smartphones are as powerful as the original supercomputers were. Plenty of full bore engineering apps on mobile device platforms out there, ya dopey fuck.
