The fluid, intuitive sầu & aesthetically pleasing user interface, as well as a wide selection of high unique apps, have sầu earned iOS many fans. Since Apple does not permit an open tiện ích market, access to lớn the App Store is restricted to iOS devices. The closest you will get lớn running iOS on Windows, is a simulator that provides you with a similar look and feel as Apple"s original.

Meet iPadian

It overlays itself on your desktop và requires no installation, you simply tải về the tệp tin from the iPadian trang web or, extract the archive sầu and run the ipadian.exe file. It launches an alternative desktop that looks & feels lượt thích an ipad home page screen.

On this new desktop you will find a doông xã bar at the bottom of the screen & a power button at the top right corner of the screen, which allows you lớn exit the application. You still have accessibility to lớn the Windows taskbar by clicking on the inhỏ at the bottom right, as shown in the screen capture below. The application is ad-supported, so you will occasionally see JavaScript pop-up ads.


Access To The App Store

It is not possible khổng lồ download apps from iTunes since iPhone, ipad tablet and iPod apps are encrypted with Apple"s FairPlay DRM technology. What the guys at iPadian have done is khổng lồ create a custom ứng dụng store that currently contains slightly over 300 hundred popular apps, such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Angry Birds, Cut The Rope and many more. They continue to add apps to the store based on user demvà. The store has 8 phầm mềm categories as the screen shot below shows.


Do The Apps Work?

Using Windows 7, I tested out a few of the apps in the custom store khổng lồ see if they worked & found that the majority are fully functional. In addition to lớn the browser and Gmail which are available in Windows, I tested out several other apps lớn see how they functioned.


The iPadian Instagram phầm mềm allows you khổng lồ log inlớn Instagram using the web-based API. Thus, while you can browse your photos, view/change your trương mục details và manage authorized applications, you won"t be able lớn upload any photos. 



Among mỏi the 34 music apps in the iPadian tiện ích store, Spotify is one of those that work very well.


Kik Messenger

The iPadian store currently has 21 networking apps and Kik Messenger is the the only messaging tiện ích that actually works.

Cut The Rope

Games such as Cut the Rope (shown below) or Angry Birds & Clan Wars worked without a hitch when I tested them.

Facebook & WhatsApp

However, much as I tried to use the Facebook app, it didn"t work for me. The phầm mềm gets stuông chồng trying lớn connect to lớn the VPS & always ends in a failed connection attempt. The custom WhatsApp phầm mềm also has its fair cốt truyện of issues. It actually isn"t a real application. iPadian uses a không tính phí website interface khổng lồ WhatsApp that allows you khổng lồ sover someone a không tính phí WhatsApp message right from your desktop. The service they use does not work.

System Requirements

The minimum specs lớn run iPadian on your Windows PC are:

Windows XP. và above sầu The download file is 35 MB At least 512 MB RAM but 1GB is recommended for best performance You also need Adobe Air installed on your PC


iPadian is not an iOS emulator in the same way that BlueStacks emulates Android. We are yet to lớn see a real emulator with access to lớn Apple"s App Store. At the most, iPadian simulates the look and feel of an iOS device và at the least it"s like using iOS skins for Windows, with the added bonus of actually being able lớn use a couple of popular apps. But, despite this, it has no touch-screen tư vấn so you won"t be able to lớn use a touch-screen monitor on Windows 8. For now you are limited khổng lồ point-and-cliông xã with the mouse.
