Andy Reviews

Andy has lost its way with bloat-ware; Better options found Thanks to alternativeTo

about Andy · · Helpful Not helpful 4 Helpful Report as spam

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.

Andy as Android VM

I've given it a try, but it horribly slowed down my machine (with 6GB ram & 2x2,2 GHz cpu) - had to uninstall.

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.

Budleware

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.

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

this emulator is not recommended !
