    Hello, I am dreamerdonkey. I am new in this forum. And I am also a new user of iPad. Recently I find out a fine PDF reader on one of my friends tab. He is a google nexus user. And that PDF reader is only for android. I search iTunes for that app but no luck. So can any one tell me that is there any way to install android apps or thirdparty apps ( actually I want to install apps with out using iTunes)

    Welcome to the iPad Forums! this is the right place to come to if you want to learn all about your iPad. Many of our members volunteer their time to help other members solve their problems and answer their questions. If a search of the forum threads doesn't find the answer you need, don't hesitate to ask your questions in the appropriate forum.

    I'm afraid that there's no way to install Android apps on any Apple device, including the iPad.if the developer hasn't written an Apple version of the app you want, you'll just have to wait or search to see if another app exists that will do the job you need.

    It is possible to running Android app on your ipad if you will be able to download, install and run Android software on your Apple –branded tablet.

    Sorry to say that is incorrect. As for PDF reader there are many PDF readers for iPad. I see I reason to look beyond what the App Store on the iPad offers.

    If you gave us a list of the features this app has that you want or need, I'm sure we can come up with a few recommendations. Perhaps even better than the Android app you saw. There are a lot of PDF apps for iOS, many with advanced PDF editing and reading features.

    Dear dreamerdonkey,
    You can not download android apps unless they put them on the App Store. The only other way is to downlaod a apk and install it via iFile if your jailbroken. (Jail breaking I don't suggest as it can brick your device and apple won't repair it)


    Kind Regards,
    Kieran (This message was sent from a iPad Air)

    Even jailbreaking won't allow you to install and run Android apps on an iPad. Any iPad apps, jailbroken or not are written especially for the iPad.
