There are two CI (continuous integration) jobs running periodically at
the INRIA Jenkins server: CogDroid and PharoDroid. The former is an
unbundled NonJIT Cog VM for Android which can run any Smalltalk image
original Cog VM can run. The latter is the same Cog VM bundled with a
generic Pharo 1.4 Smalltalk image. These two builds complement each
other, and together they comprise an Android analog of the one-click
Pharo distribution: a practically usable piece of software ready for
development and exploration of possible uses of Smalltalk on mobile

Whoever is interested to try Pharo and other compatible Smalltalk
implementations on Android devices are welcome to use these builds. A
brief overview with installation and usage recommendations can be
found here:


The developer of CogDroid and PharoDroid hopes that these new Android
applications will help the adoption of Smalltalk for writing
applications for mobile devices.

Any thoughts, suggestions and critics are welcome.
