Dubai: If you are into Android application development and are using the default emulator, you will have certainly experienced the frustrating slow performance of the emulator. The default emulator is not only slow in booting up, but also on all the successive runs of your application. An efficient solution for this was the development of AndroVM which provided a virtual machine client for VirtualBox. This ensued as a remarkably faster emulator than the default one. Later, AndroVM was bought by Genymobile and they released Genymotion which was the improved version of AndroVM.
Genymotion is an easy-to-use Android emulator which lets you build and test great Android applications. It offers you with 20 pre-configured devices and also allows you to create your own devices.
Main features of Genymotion emulator:
The Genymotion emulator makes use of x86 architecture virtualization and OpenGL hardware acceleration which makes your apps run more efficiently. It creates a virtual machine using VirtualBox and enables the support for hardware sensors like accelerometer, GPS and battery. It is available for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh operating systems.
In order to download Genymotion, you need to create an account in Genymotion website. Then you can login and download the installer to your system. You need to first install an Oracle VirtualBox if you want it on your Mac and Linux machine. You must be sure that the VirtualBox networking is enabled before installing VirtualBox.
