We all know that the Android is one of the fastest growing platforms today. Just check out Google Play and you will see the hundreds of thousands of apps available which you can download on your mobile device. What if you could install these apps in your PC, wouldn’t it be great? Well you can actually run Android apps on your PC.
To do this you will need to download an app called BlueStacks in your Windows or OSX computer. Just a reminder though, the app is still in beta so it has a few bugs but overall it works great.
Here’s how to get BlueStacks
- Go to the BlueStacks website
- Download the app for your specific platform (Windows or OSX)
- You will get a file called BlueStacks-SplitInstaller_native.exe which you will need to run
- Just click on continue
Just a quick reminder during the initial install phase, it’s going to take quite some time since your system will be configured properly. Once it is done you will be able to enjoy using any Android app in your computer.
I’ve tried using this app and right now I’m enjoying listening to music using TuneIn Radio. I’ll be trying out other apps later on.
BlueStacks is a software company based in Silicon Valley that specializes in bringing Android apps to Mac, Windows PC’s and Windows tablets. The company was formed in 2009 by Rosen Sharma. If you are familiar with the name then you might have heard of him before as he was formerly the CTO of McAfee.
