Android bank apps
#1
I assume that all banking apps run under Android. Linux offers Android emulators. Has anyone installed such an emulator on their phone? Which OS? Does it connect to their bank? I am running openSUSE.

waydroid is the way to go for android emulation. as far as "will your bank app work?" this is very dependent on the bank's app. the only way to really tell is to try to install and run it.

Just be warned that bank apps in particular are known to be extremely picky for "security" reasons, so do not count on them to run under Waydroid (or in general on anything other than an official, non-rooted Android phone running the very latest Android).

Thanks for the warning. I suspected that. I bought my Pinephone mostly as an adult toy. I don't use a smart phone preferring an ancient phone-only Nokia, but it's getting hard to interface with banks and governments.

This is all very difficult to explain by writing here. It is important to note that compatibility may depend on the specific banking application and its OS requirements. On openSUSE I usually create a virtual machine with Android x86. Now I'm studying how to create a digital wallet, using https://dashdevs.com/blog/how-to-create-...al-wallet/ for this. I want to make my own mobile application. There have already been a couple of attempts, but they were not successful.

There was a case, I came across this. I usually use emulators such as Genymotion, based on the standard Android OS.
