[SOLVED-ISH] How to install an ios app on a non-apple product?

Post by 5FingerFistBump » Fri May 18, 2018 8:22 pm

I want this.

I don't want to pay diamond-price for an infant-fragile device. The $7 I don't mind but I hate their iBreak garbage. I searched for patterning drum machines all over that can play on an Android phone or a computer with Linux. I can't find anything like this anywhere else. Thank you for your help!

There is some information found on the web about how to do that. There is apparently an iPad emulator that runs on Windows and Linux:

https://ipadian.net/

And apparently somebody has been working on iEmu, but I couldn't find very much about it:

It appears there are several iOS emulators that run in Windows:

I would think there would be some way to do it in qemu.

Good luck.

I'm pretty sure ipadian is fake.
It's not fake, it's just more a simulator to make Windwoes look like iOS.

Trying to run iOS apps in Linux is a nightmare. Any working solution will likely break at some point. Apple may use a Unix based OS that's not unlike Linux, it's not Linux, and Apple does not have any desire to support Linux. Just search "uibuntu itunes" to see what I mean.

Hi 5FingerFistBump,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

- It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

1) You can install Virtualbox and MacOS in that, and then whatever Mac apps... assuming your computer has enough resources...

2.) Linux articles and posts for virtual drum

Have you checked the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" for "drum"? "Hydrogen" packages, "jackbeat", "multimedia-drums", "drumgizmo", etc... Perhaps "Mixxx"?

... and it is on Apple hardware. Installing the fruity companies OS on non-Apple hardware violates the EULA. I do not know if Apple has ever gone after an individual for building a hackintosh, but it has gone after companies who built and sold them.

Also, I am pretty sure you cannot run an app from the AppStore on macOS.

The only official way Apple had ever allowed was to run the - of course paid - OSX-Server version virtually on a Mac. Already a few years ago since the OSXes were still delivered on DVD's...

With Apple's development tools the iOS apps should already run under OSX/macOS - somehow the things have to be developed :mrgreen:

I tried iPadian. Disappointingly weak. Didn't work. Uninstalled. I'm not gonna bother with buying their OS for virtual machine. I can get a refurbished iPad for $100 and just use it with wi-fi and be extra careful with its fine China touchscreen. Still, I appreciate all of you for your help.
