I've heard it works on an iPad... I would assume it might work on an Android tablet...

The current client can't be resized, though. I do know that. I am not sure how touch controls would work, though. I suppose my post claiming ignorance is more to keep it alive and see if someone smrter than me comes along... (there are plenty of them)

The only way for it to work on an iPad at the moment is through a remote desktop application Razz
There's work on porting the client to HTML5, but that's still in early alpha development.

It doesn't work on andriod because java doesn't support andriod. hence the java client doesn't work.

It is not because Java does not support Android or IPhone, but the other way around.

Running Java allows the machine run anything. Tablet/Phone platform owners do not want you to run unvetted software, only their accepted software from their marketplace. That is the whole ecosystem concept.

that android doesn't follow. It'll let you install any app from any location out of the box; you're not tied to the 'play' store.

The remote desktop solution will work for android as well.

I'm guessing you could run fumbbl native on a windows tablet since it has W8; same as on a PC.

HTML5 fumbbl is still a long way off.

unfortunately, yes. Would be pretty handy being able to play on the tablet!

Imagine the mis-clicks (mis-fingered?) on a tablet Razz I think the UI would need some tweeks for it to work on a tablet anyway.

playing with your dongle on the train will get you arrested.
