How do I convert android apk to ios app?

Hi,it seems to me that it is not possible to use mit inventor to create apps for iPhone right ?, I can convert with some program an Android app created with MIT inventor from apk, aia or aix to install it on iPhone
Thank you.

You can't install .apk files on iOS devices, but you can connect to the iOS App Inventor Companion, now available on the App Store.

.aix files are only for extensions, so they can't be used for apps.

Hi,if download App Inventor Companion from a PC Mac iOS, and enter with my MIT app inventor account I find my apps made by Windows and can I download the format of the app for iOS and upload it to the app storie?

Hi Stefano,

Not yet, but almost...MIT is still developing this function.


so you can't create ready-made Mac apps from Windows?

Only Android.

Right now, you can only test apps on iOS, not publish apps.

Yes, you can do that by publishing your app to the App Inventor Gallery.

Ok I hope soon to be able to download files and upload to the store, apple.

Actually more apt in the App Inventor for ios category :wink:

You could try using an online .apk to .ipa convertor, but beware for fake/phishing links and sites.
