After I read Napoleon’s post on running Android on an iPhone, I wondered if there were any tools out there to run it on OS X. Spoiler alert: Yes, there are.

Truthfully, it couldn’t be any easier. Get Andy now and start having fun (it’s totally free). Even if you’re a die-hard iPhone fanatic, playing around on Android a bit can’t hurt.

Here’s the source article, although you probably won’t need it. The software is totally straightforward.

Here’s a screenshot of Andy running on my iMac:

And here we have a screenshot of Words With Friends running on that same emulator (opponent’s identity redacted). I went into the Google Play store and installed the app. After I entered my credentials on the app, it even recognized that I had purchased the app before and gave me the “No ads between moves” privilege.

If for playing games, I would like to cast my screen on Mac display with some screen mirroring tools. And some tools can capture the screen into video or image. Not bad for me.
