What is Andy?

It also provides users with unlimited storage capacity, PC and Mac compatibility, and the freedom to play the most popular mobile games on a desktop. With phone as a joystick, you will never have to sacrifice the multi-touch or gyro elements of gaming, and thanks to seamless connection between desktop and mobile, you can receive a SnapChat phone picture on the street and see it on your desktop at home

I was an Andy (Android) supporter until late 2015. However, the more recent versions that have been released install a lot of bloat-ware apps that force you to play or activate them prior to releasing control to the emulator main page. I was very unhappy about Andy's uninstall functionality (more ) and left over setup files. MEmu, KOPLAYER, and Nox are good alternatives for Windows users. Some of the newer android emulators are not dependent on virtual box which brings issues of its own.
This application is NOT SAFE
My friend installed it and it messed up his PC
There are better alternatives
Andy takes forever to install and appears to fail. It installs other software without user approval. It is not a standalone emulator as it appears to require VMware to run. It also installs Apple drivers on a Windows PC. The program/OS itself is super slow. You'd be better off installing something like Bluestacks. Even with the ads in BS it still runs better/faster than Raggedy Andy.
Don't Download Andy
I have yet to find a decent Android emulator for Mac. Andy attempts to install three pieces of software, as well as VirtualBox, as Andy is actually not a standalone program.
Andy also caused a kernal panic, and used half of my computer's memory, and took up 2GB of space, not including the other software it installed.
Installs mackeeper which usefullness is similar to virus. I recommend keep this crapware away from your computer

Andy is the emulator that contain Bloatware so be careful during installation, and it will install virtualbox since it Require Virtualbox to run the emulator it also has Bad Compability and Performance, it doesnt even able to run snapchat or path, and performance are bad, it able to open facebook but tok 10-15 seconds to load and only has 10-20fps only
