Here’s something neat, it’s called Andyroid or Andy and it let’s you run Android on your desktop for free. I already grabbed it an installed it but didn’t set it up yet but setup looks just like setting up a new Android device. The program is free and it let’s you run most anything on your Windows computer that runs on Android, which is impressive. It also says you can use your Android phone as a remote for Andy but I couldn’t find an app in the appstore for it, but I’m am going to certainly look into it. More info below for you..
It’s a unique new product that connects the PC and mobile experience together like no other technology ever has before. Andyroid or “ANDY” is a free downloadable Android OS that seamlessly connects a smartphone and personal computer allowing users to run an Android phone directly from their desktop while offering some intriguing and unprecedented capabilities. Andy is a solution that allows users to have the same mobile experience on their PCs and MACs as they do on their cell phones.
A few Andy attributes:
• Provides seamless sync between desktop and mobile devices
• Connects Win/Mac with Android apps for launching, push notifications and storage
• Enables app download from any desktop browser direct to Andy OS
• Ensures most up to date Android OS at all times
• Brings favorite communication and entertainment mobile apps to the desktop
Andy breaks down the barrier between desktop and mobile computing. It doesn’t have the restraints of a mobile device so users can now download any mobile app directly from their desktop browser without worrying about storage limitations or having to update their Android OS version. With Andy now users can use the latest OS direct ly from their computer without the need to replace their mobile phones with newer versions. Now they can download apps on one device and access them with another – all with the click of a button.
One of the more intriguing aspects of Andy that sets it apart is that while most mobile games require either touch or gyro to play, Andy turns a computer desktop into to a full touch environment through a unique remote control app that can be installed on any phone, allowing users to run the games on their desktop but control them from any mobile device. With a phone as a joystick, Andy users will never have to sacrifice the multi-touch or gyro elements of gaming. And thanks to seamless connection between desktop and mobile, users can now for instance receive a SnapChat phone picture on the street AND see it on a desktop at home.
Other similar technologies on the market now only support only a limited amount of apps or don’t incorporate the Google Play store. Even for the apps they do support there is no synchronization with the cloud architecture, which means users can’t share apps between devices. 70% of the apps in the Google Play store aren’t available for PC. Many popular apps that can’t run on PC or MAC today like Whatsapp, Kik, Clash of Clans, Subway Surfers, Temple Run, Jetpack Joyride and more, can now do so thanks to the Andy technology. Additionally, with current technology on the market, game data isn’t shared between mobile and PC devices, so reaching level 9 on a mobile game won’t allow users to continue from the same stage on a PC. With Andy, that is all now possible.
Andy developers Yossi & Eyal Fishler of Search Safer, Inc. saw a void in the marketplace and spent the last few years perfecting Andy for this launch. “We talked a great deal about what would be a truly compelling product for the person of today, the person who uses multiple mobile devices and spends many hours at work and home on a desktop. With a cluttered mobile app market and minimal app innovation for the desktop, the discussion kept coming back to the OS as a central point for all computing, and how the OS itself could be transformational.” And from that conclusion Andy was born. “The open OS that became Andy will allow developers and users to enjoy more robust apps, experience them in multiple device environments and stop them from being constrained by the limits of device storage, screen size or separate OS.”
