YouWave also does the same task as Bluestacks and other Android Emulator.. I prefer YouWave because it offers full android system unlike bluestacks app player the menu and options are just like a regular android home screen, however you wave is a paid application but comes with ten days of free trial to try out the software, but it also comes with a premium price tag of 19.9$ (home edition). YouWave supports Android 4.0.4 ICS version which means that any app, which requires 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher can’t be run on your PC using Youwave. Before making any purchase , i will advise you to download the trial version of YouWave with 10 days validity. Visit the above given download link, download YouWave and install it on your PC.


According to Software Informer Genymotion is an open source Android emulator for app testing and presentation. You can control simulated sensors like battery, GPS, accelerometer with the user-friendly interface, it includes powerful command line tools that allow you to build complex tests and you can test your applications with 3D performances.Genymotion uses the same principle as YouWave to run Android
apps by installing Oracle Virtualbox on your PC.
Developers also used it to test their developer android apps on different devices like tablet and smartphones. It provides you the full Android experience and for me is the fastest emulator that you can use  on your PC, compare to Bluestacks, which only allows you to run Android apps.
