And, don’t worry. This is free software.

The emulator

There are several Android emulators available. But the technology experts recommend the iAndroid as the best one. It has several features including ease of use, easy installation, and more.


Though this is lightweight software, you need to meet certain criteria. In fact, your device should have specific features. Not all iOS devices are compatible with iAndroid. Therefore, you need to have a compatible device.

Also, your device should be non-jailbroken. Further, you will need a Cydia installer. Without Cydia, you cannot have this app. The iAndroid is not available on the App Store. Besides, there should be ample space on your phone to install the app.

Experts recommend having at least 200 megabytes of free space to run it. Moreover, there should be an active internet connection. Otherwise, you cannot download, install and enjoy the app features.
