You can fill ODK forms using a web browser and Enketo. Is that what you had in mind?

first of all thank you so much for your prompt response Mr. @yanokwa , then, i will try, than will answer.

Dear @yanokwa, i think Enketo is something else, i need an offline application which could open XML file on my PC the same like it open in smart phone, and which enable us to fill the form via computer. is it possible?

you can download and install bluestacks on your computer and install ODK Collect on it, with his you will be able to view the form as it is on the smart phone.


As @Fabla says, there is software to run Android applications on desktop computers. You may find the documentation at helpful.
