BlueStacks vs Andy - The best Android emulator on PC
Want to run Android on a PC? Andy OS allows you to do just that, emulating the complete Android experience on your desktop. I've just installed it so I've got no fresh opinion. But so far it's lived up to my hopes. How are you. Dog With Fleas. Don't waste your time.
Andy OS, an Android emulator, enables you to run mobile apps and games in a sandboxed custom build of Android on your Windows desktop. Full Android experience: While other Android emulators only let you emulate individual apps over a custom user interface, Andy OS lets you in on the full Android experience. Wide range of app compatibility: Full emulation means Andy can run any apps in the Google Play store. Notifications, app side-loading installing apps outside Google Play , and even rooting are doable if you have the know-how. Advanced options: Built on top of open-source Oracle VM VirtualBox, Andy is fully customizable, provided you have the technical knowledge. Modern PCs are powerful enough that you can tweak the virtual machine to run at much higher hardware settings than the standard preset for a smoother Android experience. Remote control: With the Andy Remote Control app, you can use your Android phone or tablet as a controller to play games wirelessly.
If you have been wanting to play your Android games, or run your favorite Android apps from your desktop PC or a laptop, there are quite a few Android emulators that do just that. Bluestacks is the first option that pops up whenever you start searching. However, it does have its drawbacks. Being primarily built to let users play Android games on their desktop machines, Bluestacks does not offer a fully-featured Android experience where some apps might lag and crash. Hence, it may leave some looking for something else, which was one reason I tried Andy. Another reason was Bluestacks had caused my two PCs to freeze and behave in odd ways, which may be not a very widespread problem, but it was enough for me.
