    I want to replace the ipads we use for Shopify POS (iOS app) with surface pro 4's but the app is only on android/iOS. Is it possible to run android as an add on?

    I don't think that is possible. Only desktop applications or store apps only.

    You could possibly use Bluestacks or Andy or some other Android emulator for Windows to run the app on the Surface Pro 4. The emulators do not work on all devices though. And even if you could get it installed and running, the app may not run as well as needed. If you are using it for a POS, it must be very reliable and fast.

    Plus, I tried several if them (those emulators) and none if them worked well. With each one of them it lagged a lot. It can't be compared to universal apps, that's for sure.

    how many devices are you considering to replace? If the number is high, then you could send an email to the developers of that app to create a windows version

    Is there a website option? Or alternatives?
