Dear=C2 =C5 er=C3=BDch Jakub,

Mathematica does not run on any tablets. It is much too big a program,
and requires too much memory and too much speed to run on any of
today's tablets that I know of.

To use Mathematica from my iPad, I  use a program that lets you
control your computer (Mac or PC) remotely from your tablet. Then I
have Mathematica running on that computer. Thus I can effectively use
Mathematica from my iPad.

That should also work with Android, because I am sure there must be
some Android program(s) available to control another full-size
computer, just as there are several such programs for the iPad.

The specific remote-control program I use is called SplashTop.

You run one part of the Splashtop system on your Mac or PC, and the
other part runs on your tablet.

SplashTop seems to be the best remote control program for my purposes,
but I have not tried them all. Splashtop is certainly not perfect, but
it works for me.

Let me know if this is helpful.
