Hi:
When I mean by arm devices they are android or iphones/ipods. I have added the project to my phone and its now awaiting tasks from this project. Would it be possible to write one for arm devices especially android. Android is similar to linux so it shouldn't be hard to port it over anyway. The only thing that is bothering me is the speed of the app on android I get a total of 487 floating points(Whetstone) and 1157 integer (Dhrystone) per core.

I suppose I could try to port the application for arm architecture for Android. What application for managing BOINC projects on android do you use?

Hi, I am matszpk, NativeBOINC author. I see, that you wrote port for ARM devices (for raspberry pi) :). NativeBOINC is open project and in the my site is BOINC API (look up in download page). You can download BOINC API and compile your applications. Finally, I can recompile your application to Android platform (if you allow me). Any good will would be appreciated.
thanks
