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.

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 ๐ŸŒŸ's

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.

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

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

works well but cannot edit dosbox.conf as it is hidden from the user

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

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

the app works ok but too slow on my pad to be useful.

This app is wrost its keywords are not showing and not working, don't west your time in this app

keyboard not working on samsung galaxy j7 crown

Waste not working animations

Wastage of time It does not open.๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

In this app my phone keyboard is not working

keyboard not working

Totally worthless if can't enter a command.

before posting your apps here, plz be sure they work and will make someone downloading them happy, otherwise your app has been a waste of my time and data

Can you please leave links to websites for downloading ROM's in a future update.

worst app i have ever seen .... don't download because it's only wastage of time

Nice and fun

Er.. where is the keyboard guys? And why aren't you answering anybody's questions on the same problem.

Where's the config file located? Are there any docs for this?

I am surprised , the dos program I have work.

hi ilike your app pls make an updte and make some improvements thanks

this is bad so bad i cant do the good cmd edit.

good for type code


my fone is going mad nokia3

Best for android

gรฒod nice app

baddest app ever

Simply ain't working. The concept is great but I just won't work. I have tried repeatedly to make commands using the on-screen keyboard yet no matter how many times I try nothing shows up. From what I can tell only the space key has any effect.

Crashes frequently. I like that there's built-in virtual arrow pads that are already enabled, and it allows you to select your own path for files. But the constant crashes are frustrating.

I really like this app the only thing IDK if this is a thing you can do but can simulate like the prossesers or something because Doom is very laggy. Also can you please make the commands the same as the pc version ? if not it's cool but other then those things great app

This is the first dosbox to play nascar racing but keeps crashing when I get to the track. It also look differnet in and outside the app. Great job guys and keep up the good work

I'd like to say it's good or bad but for me it will not show up, the system simply doesn't detect it, though I've got .iso ready to go and .bat to launch I simply can't. It's frustrating

It works but I can't modify/write files if I mount the /storage/extSdCard folder as C:. It will only write to the folder if I use the internal memory. Is this a bug or I'm doing something wrong?

Hi Dev, Just Love this App... May I ask you some question: Can I run dos command using "am -a org.gamesys.andoid.dosbox.MAIN" or anything... Just need it to run COBOL compiler and execute it using external editor on android.

need to be able to open small exe files, not even asking for full game functions, just the ability to use kse_333, a very small KOTOR save game editor.

Great! A version of dosbox that actually runs on my phone. Problem is it doesn't like Google keyboard.

For those that can't get the keyboard to work I found that downloading the Hacker's Keyboard from the play store and then selecting it in settings solves the problem...

The App is great,but it has a lot of problems like not supporting several special characters like colon,comma and etc!Even this app lacks on opening many dos apps like archane ie,win 2.03,torus.It also does not have Networking support!Please Fix these all then this will be a nice app to use even if it crashes frequently!

It's very useful app. could you active communication through serial port adapter like PL2303HXD to use DOS programmes with communication functiob

App works good, keyboard does not accept Capital Letters and some special characters. External keyboard works well though. Developers need to fix the keyboard issue

Couldn't even type anything, whenever opened keyboard, the app crashed...

I can't type anything into the command line crashes on use of the virtual keyboard

The blue screen isn't coming Please tell me what to do

It keeps crashing all the time Very bad app

Do not work keyboard in Android lollipop 5.1

At least it's running, while others don't. But without the menu bar and the wrong keyboard. Cannot setup anything.
