Which file types can the EjsS App open?

I've been able to download many simulations from compadre and run them on my phone, but some files are unable to run. I suspect the EjsS App can handle only certain file types. How could I make my own simulations (which are currently .jar files) operate on my phone?

Mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, do not support Java programs packaged in jar files.  Simulations packaged in ready-to-run jar files run on Windows, Linux, and OS X computes if Java is installed.  EjsS JavaScript programs run in html web pages on almost all platforms.

You may refer to this guide for re creating jar files to HTML.
Enjoy!
