Android App Emulator
« on: April 18, 2017, 01:14:18 AM »
I've tried a few. Mostly for playing in class.

For optimization - I tend to try and run them while playing Guild Wars 2.

Overall Best -
Bluestacks 2 App Player- Starting up can be irritating.  And it does bother you every other week about "pay x or install these free games to keep using it."  But overall its better optimized, runs most games smoothly. And is available for Mac and PC. It doesn't cause any framerate issues while playing guild wars 2. Can have bluestacks plus another app player and it'll still be fine.

MEmu App Player - It's gotten slightly better.  Used to crash all the time. But overall its slow start up and optimization is a mixed bag. Sometimes there's framerate issues, other times there isn't. Other than blue stacks, other app players will cause huge lag issues.

KO Player - It runs decently, but slow start up and poor optimization. will lag with other app players.

Nox player - pretty much the same as KO Player.

Andy OS - I consider this the worse of the bunch. slow start up. lag with app players. sometimes lag when its the only thing running.  Loaded with bloated crap, sometimes i start it up and it runs some preinstalled app already (annoying).

Doubt you will have a need to even use one of these. but if you do.  I'd go with these.
Back when Pokemon Go first released, you could play it on Bluestacks, but around late September it became no longer possible.

Tried once, can't even remember which program.

DL source was iffy so I uninstalled it and haven't tried since.

What are the benefits of running Android on a PC/Mac?

Probably Andy os or droid4x. They set off norton every time.
No real benefits. Just an alternative. We only did it cause it looked less obvious than having your phone out.

In some cases it's worse because of optimization and not running as smoothly.

Btw. For mac you can't chat if you're playing clash of clans.  The button is interfering with the blue stacks menu

I've tried running Google's Chrome OS on the PC.

Is that an alternative to the Android App?

I think I know what you're talking about. It lets you run android apps directly on the browser.

I haven't tried. But it does sound like it.

Oh forgot to mention. Some of these app players were used for developing apps and testing
