As most students use smartphones or tablets these days, the question comes up whether “EVO-apps” should be developed for such devices. As smartphones are almost always at hand, such Apps would give students great freedom when to work with EVOs.

Well, at least for the more demanding Modeling EVOs such devices are too limited in many respects. However, Investigation EVOs with their game-like approach may be particularly well suited for being used on tablets or smartphones if they provide on-screen user interfaces and touch manipulation. A player app for Android has been developed that allows running Blender game-engine based EVOs on Android devices. The app still lacks a few important features like text rendering but otherwise is already mostly functional.

We consider including the Android platform for future development of Investigation EVOs.
