Mobile operating systems like Android, iOS, Windows Phone have beautiful applications which are amazing yet simple and cannot run on our complex desktops. In fact the apps on mobile markets are increasing every day and for each and every purpose, we have a mobile app or its alternative for every mobile platform. But all these apps are of course mobile compatible and so, we cannot play games like TempleRun or CutTheRope on our PC. But don’t you want to run all the android applications on your PC? It’s not possible with a remote desktop application which is to be installed on your Android device, whether a Smartphone or a tablet.
BlueStacks is an amazing software developed by a team of Indian developers as well as others which lets you run the mobile apps on your PC. It is a simple-to-download-and-install software available for both Windows and Mac. You can run the BlueStacks app player on your desktop, notebook or even on your Windows Tablet. Some of the Android apps might not run with BlueStacks as sometimes they require more graphic memory or might be too dependent on features that are exclusive to mobiles. But you can run all major Android apps using this tool.
Download the BlueStacks app player from the website where you’ve two versions, an lite downloader and a bulky offline installer which are not more than 100mb in size. You can download the software in either of the ways and install it as ever. And during the initial installation process itself, you can see how these Android apps will run on your PC.
Once you are done with the installation process, you see a Settings icon and a search bar along with some icons on the top. You can either use your mouse or your keyboard’s arrow keys as well to navigate. It’s also simple to enter and exit a menu using keyboard shortcuts which are Enter and Escape keys. You can search for your favorite Android apps from the search bar.
