Windroy is an emulator that allows for users to run Andriod apps from their Windows computer. Windroy opens a window that looks just like an Andriod phone screen and allows for users to interact with apps in the same way that they would on their phone. It is great for testing out apps, getting to know the Andriod operating system, or even just playing with apps on a larger screen.

Windroy is definitely created with the app creator in mind. It is easy to see how an app runs, if it has any glitches, or what could be done to make it run better. Because it is identical to an Andriod device, creators do not need to buy another phone in order to test run their products.

This emulator has its faults. The program can crash from time to time and there is never any audio. In addition to that, apps cannot be downloaded from Google Play like on an actual Andriod device. Getting the apps can be frustrating for those without a good level of computing expertise.

Windroy currently uses the Andriod 4.0.3 operating system. It is only offered for Windows operating systems at this time. It is available in 26 different languages and is completely free to download.

Windroy is a great choice for creators or skilled computer users. It starts quickly and without a lot of fuss and once running is easy to use. For those who have computing experience, it isn't hard to use and runs very intuitively. It should be viewed more as a sandbox space to try things out rather than a replacement for a daily-usage phone.

Pros:

  • Runs just like an Andriod device
  • Great tool for creators
  • Attractive interface
  • Completely free

Cons:

  • May not work as well as a new Andriod phone
  • Users must have computing experiance to download apps
  • Crashes from time to time
  • No audio at all
  • No Google Play
