Play classic DOS games on your iPhone and iPad!

iDOS turns your device right into a powerful DOS gaming PC, with modern game control to make your old favorites as playable as possible.

You can also use iDOS for non-gaming purposes, such as word processing, casual programming. Apps in the DOS days are often simpler and surprisingly productive.


iDOS provides a PC compatible on-screen keyboard with carefully designed layouts for different devices and orientations. The keyboard has a sliding control in landscape mode so that you can keep it from covering critical part of the screen.

Bluetooth keyboard is fully supported on iOS 14+.


iDOS provides a virtual gamepad with key bindings that are fairly common in DOS games. You can customize the bindings. The DPAD works in 8-axis way. It can also be toggled into a joystick.

External bluetooth game controllers are supported. Make sure your game controller is connected (System Settings->Bluetooth). To customize button bindings, go to iDOS in landscape mode, tap on bluetooth icon on the auto-hiding top bar.


The screen area serves as a trackpad for moving mouse pointer.
Tap on the screen for left click. If direct touch is enabled, the mouse pointer will move to where you tap.
Hold one finger on the screen, and tap with another finger for right click.

On-screen mouse buttons are also provided for your convenience.

Bluetooth mouse are fully supported on iOS 14+.

iDOS is back in business!!!

As others have said, you can finally add files into the virtual C drive again. Nice to finally be able to play all my old games again.

Well done to the dev for sticking with it all these years.

Thank you for your kind words!

"Thanks" Apple

Is it any wonder why apple's sales are dropping. Before IOS 9 you were able to sync files via itunes to the iDos2 sandbox. I have TurboC. basic, and even the Psion 2 Organiser develoment system running on my iPad.

Now, itunes file sharing has been disabled for this release.. so thanks apple. May your sales continue to drop and people move over to andriod tablets, that don't have your restrictions.
