More about Jar of Beans:

Jar of Beans, as the name suggests, runs Android Jelly Bean (using 4.1.1 at present). It supports Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (HAXM), which provides hardware acceleration for the emulator to improve overall performance. One advantage Jar of Beans has over other emulators is that this one is completely portable and requires no installation. Execution is as simple as running an executable file.

As a portable Android Emulator, it doesn’t require installation and can be accessed by only running an executable file. The emulator boasts quite major configuration options. Like when a resolution of 1280 x 768 or higher is chosen, the Android interface automatically switches to operating system’s tablet mode.

There is also a special button that allows devs to install APK files stored on their computer. Others like switches for controlling volume, an ADB interface, multi-user support and the ability to create a virtual SD card are also present.

Some additional features are planned for upcoming versions, including keyboard support to allow full-text input from a physical device, a choice of skins and multiple resolutions.

Note: Development of Jar Of Beans Android emulator has been stopped. However, you can still download it and use it.
