Free Android emulator for PCs

LeapDroid is free software that lets you use your Android mobile phone on your Microsoft Windows PC computer or laptop. LeapDroid is a suitable name since the platform lets you quickly jump around your Android operating system on your PC.

BlueStacks, GameLoop, MEmu, and Nox Player are alternatives to LeapDroid that are often used to run Android mobile games on a larger desktop screen instead of on a smaller phone. While the rest of the applications each include a built-in app player that is centred around games, LeapDroid only has the general app store that comes with Android devices.

Is LeapDroid an emulator?

LeapDroid is a good emulator that lets you enjoy your handheld Android phone on a bigger PC screen. The program mirrors your APK background to your desktop that you can click around on with your keyboard, mouse or trackpad instead of your finger. The apps that you have installed on your Android will show up in the same order in LeapDroid.


The LeapDroid user interface is essentially identical to your Android home screen. Additional buttons line the sides of your emulated screen. The icons on the bottom of the interface let you conveniently navigate around your Android with a back, home, and tabbed view button. The button with dots takes you to the library of apps that you already have installed.

While you can see your installed Android apps directly in the UI, the app library shows you a succinct list of your apps. Since mobile phones are usually organised into multiple home screens with various apps, the app library area delivers a concise view instead of a chaotic one. The ‘Shop’ button is directly above the library list to let you quickly install additional programs.

LeapDroid allows you to install software onto your Android in the Google Play Store. The Play Store will keep track of your recent actions, like previously installed apps. Popular platforms like TikTok and WhatsApp are available for you to install and use. You can open a program by tapping the icon once.

Since the user interface of each application is enlarged with LeapDroid, the interface design might be different than what your Android would display. The applications work the same on both your Android and PC, nonetheless.

What happened to LeapDroid?

LeapDroid has maintained a reputation of being a fast emulator, even though the software has been discontinued. LeapDroid is only compatible with older Android and Windows PC operating systems since the software does not get new updates. The latest version that LeapDroid supports is Android Kit Kat.

Android emulators are often used to enhance the mobile gaming experience by bringing the gameplay to a bigger screen instead of a little one. While LeapDroid does let you play Android games on your PC, alternative emulators have enhanced the gaming experience with game installers, leaderboards, and more.

How do you use LeapDroid?

LeapDroid delivers a simple user experience with barely any set-up requirements. The platform automatically launches into your synced Android home screen on your desktop. LeapDroid offers stunningly high-resolution graphics for software that does not get updated anymore. The user interface has an impressively clean design since none of the buttons impedes your emulated Android screen.

A toolbar lines the right side with power, volume, download, screenshot, location, and settings buttons. The same icons that line the bottom of the screen are available in the right panel to let you navigate back, home, and to the tabs. The settings let you set up your Bluetooth, data usage, and Wi-Fi preferences.

Since the design of LeapDroid was ahead of its time, Google took the opportunity to invite the developers to join the tech giant. While LeapDroid is not an active platform, the innovative layout and its optimal performance have allowed the software to still be one of the best emulators.

Android mirroring software

LeapDroid is a powerful Android emulation software that is developed for Microsoft Windows PC systems. LeapDroid boasts high speeds in a high-quality interface. While LeapDroid has remained top of the class despite the lack of software updates, the leader is becoming irrelevant due to the releases of both newer operating systems and Android emulating apps that target gamers who play mobile games.

What’s new?

The development team announced that the software was discontinued, which means that LeapDroid will not receive additional software updates. In case you want to get LeapDroid, you will want to make sure that the system requirements are compatible with your OS.
