Magnet Forensics Releases New Free Tool: MAGNET App Simulator

Magnet Forensics is excited to share a new free tool with the digital forensics community, the MAGNET App Simulator.

The MAGNET App Simulator gives visualization to Android applications found during your investigation. Allowing for the examiner to load application data from Android devices in your case into a virtual environment, the MAGNET App Simulator enables you to view and interact with the data as the user would have seen it on their own device.

Download the MAGNET App Simulator for free here.Use this tool to get a feel of how your suspect was interacting with their data, or to present the evidence to juries and stakeholders in a familiar mobile appearance. It can even be used to load in and analyze Android apps that may not have support in any forensic software. This tool runs completely outside of our main software suite, Magnet AXIOM, so you can try it out today with data output from any forensic review tool.

Magnet Forensics would like to give credit and many thanks to Alexis Brignoni for his research in Android application emulation. His hard work allowed us to be able to create this tool for you. You can read about his research in his blog here.
