In this case, emulators like Andy come into play. You are ready? Let's enjoy Android applications on your MacBook / iMac too.


    A lot of users don't own an Android device, but they want to use or play with Android apps. Likewise, users with a resource-limited Android device cannot use apps and games due to their low internal memory, RAM, or GPU.

    Andy lets you enjoy Android games and applications on the big screen of a laptop / monitor.

    Andy allows you to play your favorite applications and downloadable games from the Google Play Store on your Mac.



    Not just regular apps or games. It is also possible to run applications such as Whatsapp, Viber or Snapchat. It is an alternative emulator to Bluestacks, widely used for running Android applications on a computer.
