YouWave will allow you to run Android apps and app stores on your Windows PC. YouWave runs Android apps on your Windows PC by creating a virtual Android environment inside Windows.
Although YouWave has been specifically designed as an emulated environment to run Android apps, sometimes the transition doesn't always come off that well.
Key features include:
- Payment options: YouWave is compatible with Google Wallet and PayPal transactions.
- Windows content: You can open Windows folders and files from inside YouWave's virtual environment.
Overall, even as a basic emulated Android environment the YouWave display inside Windows doesn't have the crispness and clarity of a native Android device. The navigation also suffers in the transition from portable to desktop.
YouWave is not freeware, but you can try it out for free for a 10 day period
