Emulate Android Phone on a Pc?

Sat Jan 26, 2019 5:05 pm

The problem is that I'm interested in the Creative Super XFi USB device.

I do own an old iPhone (6?) that I could get onto the internet with my
router wifi but seems that you have to have an Android to get the
program needed to send the ears and face images off to be processed
into a personal sound profile file for the SXFi device to do it's best work.
(not out till Feb1)

Thoughts welcome!

I've successfully run a few Android apps on my Windows PC using Bluestacks: https://www.bluestacks.com/

Another vote for Bluestacks.
I use it to run some security camera apps for the Wyzw cams because they're dirt ($26 and $38) cheap. Wyze cam for setup, edits, and single view; tinycam for up to 4 live camera views.

I'll look into "bluestacks" with fingers crossed.

Thanks all,
