BlueStacks App Player
An App to Bring your Android Apps to PC for Free
Nox App Player is a cross-platform tool which enables you to run Android apps on your Windows or Mac computer. It creates an Android tablet simulation which then lets you run virtually any Android app on your machine of choice.
While it can take a while, setting up Nox on your machine is relatively simple. You need to log in with your Google Play credentials. This kickstarts the process of automatically loading the Android apps already associated to your account - a time-saving step which lets you get started right away.
The player offers a choice of skins and other view modifications which allow you to make it your own. It keeps up with the application's overall philosophy of letting you carry your preferences across platforms and devices.
No, the simulator does not take too much processing power to run well. Having said that, you do have the option of allocating specific CPU levels to it; however, it is very unlikely you would need to regulate that since the application is well-designed and smooth under normal use conditions.
The app player gives you a variety of control choices: you can opt for mouse clicks where finger taps would be required on an Android device, or you can assign hot keys to each app or globally. For gaming purposes, you can also integrate a joystick or a game pad into the equation and map specific actions to those additional devices.
While many other emulators suffer from stubborn glitches and periodic failures, Nox stands out with a great track record of stability and reliability. Due to its relatively simple design and robust, simple functionality, it tends to run smoothly and painlessly in both Windows and Mac environments.
Nox is made to work under Windows and Mac OS. However, keep in mind that Windows 10 seems to have dropped support for the app player. So, if you are running this version of Microsoft's OS, Nox is not an option for you and you should consider other compatible Android emulators.
There are no known risks or systemic problems associated with using Nox on your computer. If you exercise caution and good judgment when downloading and installing apps on your Android device, there is no additional risk in running them on your computer as well.
Yes, like a native Android environment, Nox is ready for multitasking. The smoothness of running several apps at once may depend on how powerful your computer is. If you have chosen to limit the CPU resources allocated to Nox, you may experience some stutter on power-hungry apps, though.
Yes, Nox App Player is free to use and one heck of an Android emulator at that!
