Platform-specific instructions: Android


With Python and Pygame being ported to Android (PGS4A), it is in principle possible to use Expyriment on Android devices, however, without OpenGL support. This can be achieved by compiling Python, Pygame and Expyriment into a Java app, using PGS4A. For ease of use, we provide the “Expyriment Android Runtime”, an Android application which can be used to directly run experiments on an Andoroid device (with Android > 2.2).

Installing Expyriment

The easiest way to run experiments on Android devices is to use our “Expyriment Android Runtime” appplication. You can download the current version from our Android release page.

Installing Expyriment scripts

Once installed, the application will look for Expyriment scripts (each in its own subdirectory) in a directory called ‘expyriment’, located at the root level of either storage device under ‘mnt’ (i.e. the internal or external SD card). Examples of correctly located Expyriment scripts include:






Extra plugins not supported

The current version of the “Expyriment Android Runtime” does not support extras plugins.
