Nox App Player Reviews

can't recommend any longer

This was a great app but it started getting buggy after a recent update. It's so bad, that their Facebook page had 2 live tech support "events" yesterday. Support for English users is pretty much non-existent. They haven't replied to emails in over a week. At this point it errors out each launch before I am able to do anything. A complete wipe and reload of the app doesn't help. It also asks you to turn on virtual technology support in your bios, mine is already on. It was a decent app but 8.0.3 is totally worthless. (Win10 gaming laptop 8core i7 2.7ghz 32gig ram, geforce gtx 1070 - waaaay more than recommended system specs)

If support was responsive and had a solution... or even an update that they knew there were issues and working on it, I wouldn't be posting this. Making emulators isn't child's play and I do expect issues. Determining a good one is dependent just as much on how they respond to the inevitable issues that will arise as they have to update the emulator to stay in line with constantly evolving mobile technology as it is on the emulator itself. They are failing for English speakers. The are quite a few active forums that google translates from Chinese (simple) ... but much gets lost in translation so they don't help either.

I used to rely on BlueStacks

But this is so much better than BlueStacks. It's faster, doesn't crash as often and, what I really like about it, it doesn't install tons of dubious, spammy or malware apps without your consent. A definite recommendation for those who want to emulate Android apps.

Worked absolutely perfectly out of the box. No complaints what so ever. Highly recommend.

Just like Bluestacks, this emulator forcibly installs unwanted spam apps that the user cannot remove. This is malicious behavior. Do not install.

This is the best android emulator app for sure.

Why?


1- Super fast. (you'll feel like you're using a normal android phone, or even better!)
2- Easy to move files from/to windows.
3- You can get root access within it's settings.
4- Screen capture + Video recorder + Macro recorder.
5- The ability to play games using keyboard. (adjusting keyboard shortcuts for touches, swipes, tilts)


and for many more reasons!

Totally agree. It took me a while to get around to testing this one but I'm amazed that it's not mentioned more as it's just so good all around. I likewise see this as the best emulation experience so far.

Some emulators don't adjust well for fullscreen use, some don't even support it. This one does it right and instantly switches between windowed and fullscreen.

The player has worked very well on my PC. Sorry you've had trouble with it, I wonder if it might be due to a hardware driver issue? Their site does include a support email: support@bignox.com

Maybe you could try contacting them to see if they could look into it?
