um, not really. ipadian is a SIMULATOR, not an emulator. there is a substantial difference and even the company admits their program is not an emulator. that contrast with blue stacks mentioned above which is an emulator for android of course. I Padian requires developers to translate the iOS apps into a usable format before it can run them. thus only apps that have been specially modified by their staff or others will work with the program. The apps that have been so modified work great with no lag and very seamlessly but if it was an emulator you wouldn't have to worry about waiting for them to make the translation of only a very tiny percentage of apps. with the blue stacks for android you can simply choose any android app and not have to worry about a pre-translation done first
Since IOS apps are developed on the Mac, you can probably run them in an emulator if you have a developer's account. To my knowledge you can't run them natively on the PC or outside of an emulator because the iPad uses custom ARM chips, not X86/X64 Intel / AMD cpu's.
