WSA PacMan is a new way to load Android apps in Windows 11


The arrival of Android app support in Windows 11 has received mixed reactions. While many are happy that they can use the Windows for Android subsystem to run apps and games, the fact that only Amazon’s Appstore is supported has led people to look for ways to load apps.

We’ve already seen the release of WSATools for this specific purpose, and now there’s a new open source option. WSA PacMan is a delightfully accessible tool that makes it easy to load applications without having to struggle with ADB commands.

The developer, alesimula, describes the app as “a GUI package manager and package installer for Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA)”.

They go on to say:

Currently provides double-click GUI installer for .apk files that displays app information (package, icon, version, and permissions), allows normal installations as well as upgrades and downgrades.

The app further provides a button to open Android settings and one to open the Android “Manage apps” settings page, from which you can uninstall or deactivate apps and grant or revoke permissions.

You can find out more and download the latest version of WSA PacMan from its GitHub repository.
