    Hi, I know that is a pretty simple question. Here is the situation.
    I am tossing up between a samsung tablet and an iPad. So far the iPad is in front. However, I also want to develop my own apps. For iPad, I'd need a mac which I don't have and don't want. Therefore, I need to know, if I develop android apps, would I be able to use them on the iPad? I'm sure there must be a hubber who knows this.

    Unlike with desktop operating systems, I'm unaware of any software that currently allows cross-platform use of applications on a mobile OS.

    Natively, no, you cannot run Android apps on an iPad.  There are Android emulators that let you run Android apps on a PC, but I know of no such emulators for the iPad.
