• Android QWK readers.

    It would be cool if there was a SyncTerm/Multimail suite for android tablets.

    The android runs a linux based OS so that is possible since both of the above are available as source. I'm not sure what the difference is between a linux distrubution and the andriod OS. If it's not to much of a leap then that is quite possible.

    I've never tried to build anything for an android so I don't know how much of a leap that is.

    Android apps are written in Java which means Syncterm and
    Multimail would have to be rewritten in Java.
    I didn't realize android apps were written in java. That is a leap
    that will likely not be made.

    There are a few BBS related programs that were written in Java. Those could be reworked I believe.

    Not QWK readers, that I've seen so far. But the potential is there.

    That is why I was thinking about going with a macbook air so i can
    run bbs user stuff.

    If it works for you, go for it. Macs aren't something I know much about, but it seems like it would work well enough.

    I knew Chuck Forsberg way back when (I lived about 20 miles north of him).
    He told me on several occasions that Zmodem was not designed to be used over
    telnet and to use YModem/YModem-G instead.
    Has SEXYZ filled the void?

    SEXYZ is a protocol driver, not a new protocol. SEXYZ just implements the standard X/Y/ZMODEM protocols, no different than DSZ, FDSZ, GSZ, sb/rb, etc. ZMODEM may not have been designed for use over Telnet, but it works just fine over Telnet (or Raw TCP, or SSH, or RLogin). Many of ZMODEM's features (error detection, windowing) are redundant with TCP, but it has some other convenient features (auto-start, resume) that YMODEM does not have, so its still preferred.

    Mostly they are written in JAVA, but other languages are also possible.

    Oh c'mon now... give us a Java version of Synchronet 10 More Cowbell Edition.

    Only if you promise to hold your breath until it arrives! :-)

    I was reading something about Android Studio you can write in C++ and other languages with additional NDKs. Might be the same type of thing

    Yeah, I still think you need a Windows computer to run this on.

    Yes, Android Studio would require a windows computer, but the program after written would work on an Android device.

    If you had a version which is comoatibble with an ARM system (ie Raspberry
    Pi) you can run it on an Android device. Which I am doing here.

    Technically, I'm running this in a Termux session on my Android, but stilk..
