An alternative I really like is to install BlueStacks, an Android emulator. It's true that they try to get you to pay for a $2/month fee (or to force you to install advertisement apps), but given how good the emulator is, I think that might be worth it.
Mobile games are written with a much higher expectation that you might task-switch away at any moment, whether that's because of an incoming phone call or just hitting the "home" button. So they usually auto-save for you, even mid-level.
