Supported Platforms

Since Babbletower is fully written in JavaTM, it potentially runs on many platforms. Practically however, the availability of reliable Java runtimes for mobile devices can still be a bit of a problem when trying to make use of this potential. But there is hope that this will improve in the near future.

Following a table listing platforms on which Babbletower has been verified to run. Note that most of this information has been contributed by other people, who installed and tried out Babbletower on their systems, and has not been checked by me. If your device is not listed here, this doesn't necessarily mean that Babbletower won't run on it. If you find its OS listed in the table, there's already a good chance that you can make it work on your device. Just give it a try and let me know of the results, so I can add this information here.
