    Interesting product, Derek, I’ll check it out.

    Follow up: I’ll be speaking at the Southwest Fox (www.swfox.net) in Phoenix this October, 2011, about this very topic.

    The screen resolution and the processor speed of a smartphone is very much comparable with a Pentium PC running Windows 98. I wonder if anyone has developed anything like an xBASE engine on Android. If so, porting an xBASE form to Android should not be difficult, as the screen resolution is very much the same.

    If you wanted to go that route, Android has ‘sqlite’ built in, so the database part would be easy (relatively). The trick would be building an interpreter for the language.

    Successfully running Foxpro 2.6 in Android, by using DOS emulator, ADosBox.
    A bit slow, but all module is working perfectly.

    For keyboard layout that need support Function Keys (F1-F12) you can use Hacker’s Keyboard for Android

    @Derek: Thank you for pointing out towards Cellica Database for android. This is such a nice product. I can now have my Visual foxpro database with me on my smartphone. We are testings its multi user version and my manager is quite impressed with it.

    Check out the Cecilia product mentioned above if you want to read/write FoxPro tables from an Android app.


    Your VFP code won’t run on Android, but you could get a remote desktop tool to run your apps or write a new U/I in either a web app or native.

    Very nice and informative article here. Has anyone ever wondered how to fill out forms online? I have, and found a simple service. I’ve found PDFfiller – online service for forms filling. It’s pretty easy to use and pretty cheap. You can find fillable TSP-3 here https://goo.gl/Vt1dBQ
