YouWave is an emulator for Android operating system in its 2.3 Gingerbread version which simulates its applications and games so you can try them from your computer just like they would be seen on your mobile phone without having to download them there.
YouWave imitates your terminal to perfection, from Android interface to the tactile keyboard as well as offering various functions like an SD card simulator to record games or the multiplayer online modus.
This emulator has the same menu elements as a mobile phone does: music, tools, navigator, gallery… Furthermore, the program brings a rotation dynamic with it so you will be able to use it in a more comfortable way.
With this tool you will be able to download all the applications you want directly from Android Market (only the 2.3.4 version) or with the APK version, being very easy to use and run. The only necessary requisite to use Android Market is having a Google ID to be able to access it, once on the browser, you will be able to download the apps that you like the most and the system will save them before closing the program so you can keep them.
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.
