Android is an OS that runs in most smartphones and in many tablets. There are many interesting apps that only can run on Android devices, and this can be a drawback, since it would be better if one could run them on a big screen PC.

This program is an Android emulator, which means that it allows your PC to behave as if it were an Android device, allowing you to download and run Android apps.

There are two methods for downloading these apps. You can download them from your Windows browser and then copy them to a specific folder in your system. Then, you can install them from the program's interface. The other system consists in download and install them directly from the program's interface.

All this may sound good, but unfortunately, I tried both methods, and the program didn't allow me to run anything, despite the fact that I installed the app correctly. I tried to run an app store to download more apps, but the program never allowed me to run it. It may be my system or something, but I don't think so.

On the other hand, the apps it has already installed run beautifully, although they took a while to start running.

There is a more advanced, cost-based version available at the developer's website, supposedly with more advanced features. You can try the free version before deciding if you need the advanced version of the program.

Please note that if you have Virtual Box installed in your system, you will need to uninstall it and manually delete the corresponding folder before installing this program. Otherwise, the program will not be installed.
