Subject: [aprsisce] WINE - Windows Emulator for Android?
I know that some of you have been running Aprsisce on linux using WINE. Is there a way to do they same thing on Android? Anyone know? I am going to most likely have to get rid of my Windows phone, and go Android. It is just to bad I may have to go that route. Windows is just getting less and less popular. :( I still want to run Aprsisce, but Android is looking far to much the choice I have to choose :( Any help here would be great!
I guess we can agree to disagree. I see (almost) everything I want to see with Aprisce and the log files. So we can agree to disagree. Maybe you can post a "Wish list" of exactly what you would like. With all the new features that have been added, I am very pleased. When was the last time you tried the Development release of Aprisce?
