There really needs to be a mobile app for Halo, I think that Halo Wars would be a great starting point to turn into an app. And yes I do know that a Spartan Assault app was released but that was only for the windows phone, and IOS even however, not android. There must be at least one app that can run on all operating systems.

Its not running it that's the problem, its that Apple probably forked over some money to Ms to gain temporary exclusivity rights for Spartan assault on IOS. :)

 

It will come to Android at some point I'm sure, jut not yet.

Android is not easy to work with. iOS is easier in that a simple toolchain like Objective C can be made to use with existing iOS source for compiling onto both Windows and Win Mobile.

 

Google however uses proprietary API's and the source has to be used in strict unmodified C++. In lamens terms....Android can't be converted, it needs to be made from scratch. So takung an existing win32 app and msking it android isnt as easy as a button click.

 

Also bear in mind that Android uses GPL not DirectX. But there is hope. Microsoft already announced plans for Project Astoria, that will allow both apps to develop and run on one another.

 

So we may see Android based Halo games sometime in the future.
