Genymotion is one of the best free Android emulators on the market. The software, which is both powerful and easy to use, will be of interest to the naturally curious, as well as for Android developers.
A program rich with options
Genymotion is easy to use and can emulate dozens of Android phones (including popular models such as the Google Nexus and Samsung Galaxy family of products). Your computer's keyboard and mouse are automatically detected, and internet access is supported with no problem. You can enable the geolocation options and even increase or decrease the size of the emulator window when Android applications are launched. The Genymotion emulator is free of unnecessary options at launch, but the main menu lets you set up the ADB (Android Debug Bridge), an option useful only to the most advanced users. The Android emulator launches in record time without having to spend ages configuring the software.
Top Android emulators
Genymotion is a powerful software and the quality is surprisingly good considering it's free, but the program isn't yet final so it's still a bit buggy. The rotation of the screen can cause problems on some of the emulated phones, and selecting the Android drop down menu sometimes caused the emulator to crash. Apart from these few shortcomings, Genymotion approaches perfection as far as Android emulators go.
