Playing your favourite mobile games on your PC just got a whole lot easier. Andy is an independent Android OS app for desktop computers that brings the full Android experience from your phone to your PC or MacBook.


Andy currently runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but the developers plan to keep the program up with the latest versions of Android as future updates roll out. Once  the software is installed on your PC, you’ll be asked to sign into your Google account and 1ClickSync to sync up Andy and whichever Android device you would like paired with your computer.

ANDY will allow you to use all the apps from your android mobile device on your PC and allows you move from mobile to desktop smoothly. The application also lets you use your android phone or tablet simultaneously with your computer, with your mobile android device [which has the ANDY companion app] controlling the emulator. This is a useful feature for games or apps that require a touchscreen to function.


All in all, Andy is a decent substitute for Android users who are eager to put the mobile OS on their PCs. While the ANDY app is not in the Google Playstore yet, you can download Andy for free from the company’s website and get the APK file from Dropbox.
