    I am simply trying to help a guy with this guys, he is not tech savvy and is accustomed to this device so would like to use it on an android phone. I can try it on my phone as an experiment but don;t want to risk damaging my phone in the process.

    It works, but it is probably not the best choice for someone not technically oriented and I don't know if anyone here uses it. You have to read through everything on the page carefully. It provides the emulator, but does not actually provide the PALM OS. You have to provide a ROM. Read all the other limitations. I would suggest reading the manual.

    For someone who really wants to run a Palm simulator on Android but is not technically oriented, I think Stlyetap is a better choice. It is very pricey ($50), but it has a 14 day free trial.

    Hope this helps.

    I have not personally used either of these. I loved my TX, but all my needs are now taken care of by native android apps.

    I have been using PHEM for quite some time now on various Android phones including my OnePlus 6T. It's great for keeping those old Palm apps alive, though you do have to provide your own ROM and it really shows how far we have come in 20 years or so.
