I am developing an Android application to read the content (e.g. messages, media files etc.) of other iOS device connected via OTG (on-the-go) cable.  I have seen some applications on the Google Play Store with similar functionalities (e.g. Samsung Smart Switch, Xperia Mobile Transfer etc.).

During my research I came across libimobiledevice (<a href=""></a>)  library. This is a cross platform library to read iOS devices’ data.

I have following questions:

1. Is it possible to port this library to Android so I can use this library in my application? If yes, what will be procedure for porting task?

2. Are there any other open source libraries/modules which can be used for this task?

I’d appreciate any suggestions on this issue. Thank you in advance.

What I have tried:

I tried web search to find whether the library is already ported to Android.

I doubt it - but you need to talk to the creators themselves to be sure.
Certainly the download links there specifically list Ubuntu and suchlike, but no Android version.
They link to an IRC channel on the page you link to, so I'd start there and see what they say.
