    You're really not getting what an Arduino is, are you?

    If a PC or Smartphone is akin to a family car, an Arduino is akin to one of the wheel bolts holding the wheels on.

  • @Majenko: but sir, we run c program on arduino. So IDE creates exe and run it on device. How that happened?

    No, the IDE does NOT create an EXE. It creates a HEX. Embedded programs are vastly different to executables that run on an operating system.

You cannot. An APK is an Android package, and an EXE is a Windows executable. Neither can run on an Arduino,
