I have tested Wine 3.0 on multiple devices and read many comments on XDA from users.
And the conclusion is that the app works fine in Android 7 (Nougat) and below, but it doesn't work with Oreo.

My primary device the Samsung Galaxy S8+ offers a desktop environment titled 'Samsung DeX' where Wine would make a great degree of sense, but on the Oreo build which I am running it doesn't work, yet it works for those on the Nougat build.
*Tested on the S8+ in both phone and desktop/DeX mode.

My Nexus 6P doesn't work with it either (running Android 8.1.0).

The app will launch, run through the setting up environment dialog, and then display a black screen afterwards.

In the future:
  • --Give your posts subject lines that actually describe your problem or question. "View unread posts | View new posts | View your posts Androi" doesn't.
    --Search the forum and bugzilla for known issues before posting. The fact that Wine doesn't work on Android 8.x and up is well known. https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44245
