How to Emulate Android and Run Android Apps on Your PC
In many cases, Android apps are superior to desktop apps. They’re compact, often better written, and have a low resource footprint.
Many popular services have a surfeit of mobile apps, but little on offer for desktop platforms, save the odd browser app. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to run mobile apps on your desktop PC? You might be testing a newly developed app or simply want to enjoy your Android app library on a desktop or laptop computer (perhaps following the theft of your device).
Whatever the case, several methods are available for you to choose from that will enable you to run virtually any Android app on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X.
