Droid4X – Free Android simulator for PC Windows & Mac OS X |Best gaming Android emulator for Windows 7/8.1/10


There was a dearth of good android emulators when it came to Mac OS , and Windows too had limited options when it came to free good android emulators & simulators. Fortunately, the scene is changing with some new entries and one of them is – Droid4X!. Droid4X is the sort of Android simulator designed for Power! , it provides complete power to the users by virtue of its speed! and things such as Complete Root Access. Also Droid 4X is an ideal android emulator for Windows Tablet esp(Lix Tablet PCs) Let’s have a peek onto some features.

Salient features of Droid4X-

Droid4X Apk installation

  • Google Play Store comes pre-installed, very few android emulators barely support it without modifications,let alone coming bundled with Google Play. Droid 4X Android emulator support Google Play.
  •  Supports Ctrl + C, Ctrl +V text support between the host Operating System and the guest Android installation (emulator).
  • Zoom In- Out supported through Central mouse – wheel (Scrollbar Zoom-in/out).
  • Best Android emulator when it comes to Gaming!, personally i’ve never encountered an emulator which supports Gaming to such an extent, you can use keyboard as a controller for Android games.
  • Provides in-built app for keyboard  mapping, you can map your screen area, actions, touch-gestures etc to your Keyboard keys, which i’ll be explaining later in the article.

  48. Akiro February 2, 2016

    I installed the emulator to be able to play Hay Day from Supercell, but for some reason it doesn’t pop up in the google play shop when I do a search, why is that?

    1. Chaitanya February 2, 2016

      Hi Akiro, may be the game has location restrictions. However you can directly download the game apk and install it inside Druid 4X

  49. Akiro February 2, 2016

    I run it thru BlueStacks without problems, and used AndyRoid emulator too without problems. How do I download he game apk directly, and how do I install it thru Druid 4X?

    1. Chaitanya February 2, 2016

      Hi Akiro, to download the game apk copy the google play store url and paste it in evozi apk downloader. After apk is downloaded, simply drag and drop the apk file onto droid4x to install it.

  50. Akiro February 2, 2016

    Thank you very much, Chaitanya. It seems to work. The drag&drop didnt, but it worked by double clicking the file.

    1. Chaitanya February 2, 2016

      You’re welcome Akiro, glad that it finally worked for you 🙂

    It seems that the latest version of BlueStacks (BlueStacks 2) also comes with the Google Play Store installed. My old version of BlueStacks popped up a message that there was a newer version available, so I installed it. It has multi-tasking with tabs, a sidebar of settings shortcuts, and other new features (including one called “Android TV”. It also offers a premium subscription upgrade. I do not know that the premium subscription offers. The free version seems to satisfy my current needs.
