UPDATE: WindowsAndroid has been renamed to Windroy.
Android is probably the most powerful and highly customizable mobile operating system out there. Android, since it’s launch by Google back in 2007, has been powering millions low to mid to high-end smartphones, including the famous Samsung Galaxy series.
Users who would like to run Android on Windows have limited options. Users need to either download and install ISOs of x86 ported Android or use the popular Bluestacks program to run thousands of Android apps on Windows with a few mouse clicks.
It seems the popular Bluestacks, the software that allows you to run Android apps on Windows, finally has a good competitor. Users who would like to test and run Android on Windows can now download a free program named WindowsAndroid.

Windroy (previously known as WindowsAndroid) is a free software to run Android OS on Windows.
