#1 Andy

The very first alternative software to BlueStacks is Andy for Android. You may not find it on Google using its name, but once you do, you are going to love the way it works and looks. It installs the very pure version of Android operating system on Windows system, without any price tag.

Yes, the experience is so real that you will feel like using an Android tablet, which is running on a Nexus experience. Nexus tablets are already known for their high performance and premium experience.

The only thing which isn’t that good in case of Andy is that it requires a standard PC configuration. I have tested it in a PC with 4GB RAM, but there were still some performance issues. Then, I used it on a system with 6GB RAM, then it was working fine, but it worked at its best with 8GB configuration. In short, it has a large appetite for CPU resources.

I recommend having Intel Core i3 processor for the minimum in a system, with dual-core configuration. The graphic card driver should be updated with support for full HD media content. Moreover, if you want to enjoy using it at its best then having 1GB dedicated graphic card is recommended.

#2 YouWave

The only thing bad about YouWave is that it comes with a price tag. It does offer free 10 days of trial to start with the software, see things, get addicted, in order to help yourself to make up the mind for going with the premium version. If you have no issues with buying a better software, then consider YouWave as your first choice.


It works on a system with 2GB RAM as well, because it doesn’t consume a lot of CPU resources. Also, it looks just like any other Android phone, running on a stock version of Ice Cream Sandwich version of the OS. Installing apps and games are possible and you can even surf the web using the same software.

A complete set of controllers is offered on the display itself, which can be used in case you still love using the GUI controllers, instead of operating things from the keyboard. So, everything is good inside, but if you can make up your mind to pay for the full version. Otherwise, you can enjoy using it for the 10 days.

#3 GenyMotion

This last recommendation from my side has very similar requirements as of BlueStacks. Thus, it can work on any system which is compatible with the other software we have here in competition. UI is pretty simple and it tries everything to offer pure stock experience, but with some slight changes.
