Android Application to Run on Windows and Mac

Android operating system has become very popular these days and you can see the device in every individual which is running with Android OS. One can install many applications on Android based devices by just visiting Google Play app. However in most of the time, when you download any APK file on your Windows or Mac computer, it does not work; this is because APK files does not support to work on Window and Mac based systems. Hence to overcome this problem, Google has introduced a software which will help to run Android apps on not only Windows and Mac platform but also on Linux operating system.

The software is named as Arc Welder. This software will easily convert Android application to the versions which can be easily used with Google chrome browser as well as Windows Mac and Linus operating system.  Running phone application on desktop in desktop certainly mean losing some functions as newer desktops is devoid of few extras such as GPS receivers, accelerometers which are very standard on Android devices such as smartphones and Tablets. But Arc Welder has the ability to reach different operating systems as it has the potential to support it.

Even though Arc Welder is the outstanding software which has been developed to run Android App on Windows and Mac computer, it too has limitation, you can load only one app at a time and you need to choose portrait or landscape layout to ensure whether you want to launch it in phone or tablet style. You can even select multiple application by picking download ZIP option and then activating extension mode in order to load the folder having APK extension.

Moving further, one of the biggest benefit of this software is the support for Google Play services. Formerly, many application would crash once it has been put through the packager as the applications were relied on API as well as other bits of OS infrastructure that Google has restricted to access. But these barriers are brought down and using Arc Welder application, plenty of application that is compatible with Android operating system can be used on Windows Mac as well as Linux operating systems.  To know more about Arc Welder application, you are suggested to visit this link
