Want to run great Android apps but no Android?

submitted on March 1, 2011 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
There are so many new apps coming out...many pertaining to shopping, deals, coupons and the like. So, what is one to do if you don't own one?

All you need to do is download and install some free software, configure a few settings, and you'll have a "virtual" Android phone running on your computer.

    Thanks for posting! I thought this article was really interesting, and made a great suggestion to install the Mobile Security app from https://www.mylookout.com/

    How do you know if an app is really malware in disguise? Without having some sort of security software installed, it might be hard to tell. I installed the no-cost Lookout Mobile Security FREE (beta) app on several of my virtual Android devices (and my real Android phone), and as far as I can tell, it does what it is supposed to: protect against malware.

      Very good point HouTex.

      Can't wait to try this out and work on creating some Android apps.
