Some enterprising Cloud Party users are playing around with hacks that get the web-based virtual world to run in a smartphone or tablet, and getting some pretty good results. Like this screencapture from Jesse, who ran Cloud Party on his Nexus 4, and got about 8-10 frames per second, which is not great, but not totally terrible. This is possible because Cloud Party is driven by WebGL, so you can run it on many mobile/tablet browsers:
Juergen Kappus, for instance, got Cloud Party running on his Samsung T700 Windows tablet in Chrome and Firefox, but not in Opera. Cloud Party isn't officially designated to be mobile-based (at least not yet), so this is still mostly geeky fun. But I kind of suspect the official Cloud Party developers are keeping an eye on mobile for future iterations.
