Android apps are developed in Java or C# and iPhone applications are written in Objective C. To test the apps developed for mobile operating systems or to install your favorite app on a PC, you’ll have to install an Emulator software.
The best emulator for Android platform is Bluestacks. iPad and iPhone emulator for PC we’ve shared below lets users install their favorite apps on MAC or Windows 7, 8, XP and 8.1 systems. IOS developers can also use them to examine and debug their software before launching them.
iPadian: This software lets you change your default windows theme to IOS 7. It has a beautiful UI. iPadian has its own app store, hence you don’t have to visit any other website to download your favorite games or programs.
To install this iPhone simulator on your computer, download its setup from xpadian.com. Double click on .exe installer file and follow every instruction that appears on the screen. One disadvantage of this software is that it doesn’t allow users to run IPA files directly.
If you don’t find your favorite game on the app store of iPadian, download and install the latest version of Bluestacks emulator on your PC. Now open Google and type the name of any game or app followed by the word apk. For instance, WhatsApp APK.
Now click on the search button. If you see any website in the search results that claims to host the APK, open it and download the file to your laptop or computer. Double click on the saved APK so that it gets installed on your PC. Now, open Bluestacks by clicking twice on its desktop shortcut icon. When this program starts, click on its all apps menu. Here you’ll find the installed program.
MobiOne: If you’re a programmer who is looking for an IDE to develop apps for the IOS platform then this software is for you.
One of the best alternatives to XCode, MobiOne features several tools for testing and debugging apps developed for the iPhone/iPad. It comes with the drag-drop support. Hence, developing an application won’t take much time.
MobiOne is not a free program but you can try it out for fifteen days. It requires more than 100 megabytes of space on HDD or SSD.
