If you are an Android user, you might have wished to use your apps in your PC. Android have thousands of apps in their store. It might be easy to port these apps into a Linux system because Android is a Linux distribution. But, can we port it to Windows and Mac? The answer is Yes!
Blue Stacks simulates an Android environment on your machine so the apps think they are running on Android. Its like having a virtual Android device inside your PC. When you go to the settings and when you start to download an app, you’ll notice the familiar UI elements of Android 2.3. I think they are still using the older platform.
It also have a really good feature called “Cloud Connect” which will allow you to import the apps installed on your Android device to Blue Stacks.
The app is still under beta testing and there are some rough edges. Recently, AMD and Blue Stacks joined hands to bring Android apps to AMD powered Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines. Special hardware support to run these apps! You can now easily use AMD App Zone to if you are in an AMD machine.
Blue Stacks takes a dominant feature in the mobile market to the desktop. But, will it be enough to slowdown the mobile invasion?
Warning : I just installed it on Windows 8 without any issues. But when I tried it on my Windows 7 machine, the machine crashed giving a BSOD! Now even the Windows checkdisk is not working! I might have to re-install everything to fix the issue :(
