gDOSBox is an Android version of the well known DOSbox 0.74 implementation, with the key difference being it resolves some of the issues with the mathematical routines that can cause problems in high-precision calculations.   

gDOSBox is experimental.  But it provides a straightforward way to run DOS programs on an Android device.  Many original DOS-based programs evolved from still earlier systems and facilities that had undergone significant development, and address a wide range of requirements.    It is interesting and educational to be able to operate these older programs on a small tablet device.  

Examples available from GEMESYS include:  GNUplot37,  Sharp APL P/C, IBM's TryAPL2, Watcom APL and STSC's APLse.   These are available at no charge, for education use, and do not contain any in-app advertising, or tracking content.

GEMESYS Ltd. is please to make gDOSbox and related scientific graphics package GNUplot37, and the APL utilities available to the Android marketplace.

Reviews From google play store

I wanted to leave a review as most people are rating this negatively. The keyboard is accessed by hitting the options button on your navigation bar. the sideways (...) and then hit onscreen keyboard. I think they intended people to use a physical keyboard with the program since playing dos games with an onscreen keyboard would be horrible. There is another ap called hackers keyboard which has all the keys a normal full layout keyboard would have if anyone wants to try lol.

Works fine, even though it's not updated. For those who cannot open the virtual keyboard or don't know what the 1234 and Ab buttons mean, read the message that appears right when you run the app. If you can't do that, maybe DOS is not for you :)

it works better but there is a problem that the keyboard on this app doesn't work properly. When i press '@' key ,it doesn't get typed on this dosbox .Not only this key has problem but it doesn't type capital letters.

It's probably much better than what I can do with it, but I dont even understand DOS very well, I only ever had one game on it, and I'm not really sure how to mount it properly. Also, does this app have the ability to run the files off a external drive? edit: haha, well I guess I'm the idiot, it works splendidly, I'm running Duke Nukem and Doom on my phone now!

Well, the keyboard isn't appearing! Also it never worked. And what's the use of those top-down-right-left and 1-2-3-4 buttons. That's why forced to uninstalled.

i dont like it its keyboard is so big and for some reason it is giving syntax error even though all the commands that I wrote are correct it is only supporting the cls command and is not performing according to my instructions

good but cannot type many letters in it for example % is not supported which is used for calling out variables and many cmd commands are even not supported but it is good so provided 3 🌟's

excellent.I was finding this app until 3 years thanks for the delay but here are some pictures of your website

played an game (bio menace) the app got abnormal, didnt control and then stopped keeps crashing now

Waste of time. Not updated for a long time. Keyboard is not working.
