Users who want to take full advantage of the Android OS ecosystem can also sideload custom apps by loading APK files, although novices should be aware that this way they can introduce malicious mobile software on their Mac.

The emulator also includes a wide array of useful background features, including a highly capable screen recorder, keyboard remapping tool, support for gamepads, network play, and more.

All in all, this emulator is user-friendly and suitable for beginners, creating an Android environment where they can take full advantage of their strong local hardware.

However, it is important to note that as of late 2023, this emulator is only in active development for the Windows OS ecosystem and does not have a public version that is optimized for the Mac platform. A legacy version of the Mac app is however still available for download!
