Editors' Review

+

BlueStacks App Player displays apps inside a window and emulates Android's touchscreen motions with your mouse. It takes longer than tapping and swiping, but it works better than we expected, especially since it's still a beta release.

Pros

Apps in Windows: It does give you the ability to run Android apps on your desktop or laptop PC.

One for all: Using the same apps for both Android and Windows has potential advantages, including cross-platform familiarity, easy data transfer, and access to thousands of Android games, tools, and apps in Windows.

Cons

Beta: Like any beta release, BlueStacks has some bugginess. Disabling its startup and services entries in System Configuration and launching BlueStacks later when needed significantly improved the stability of both BlueStacks and Windows.

Subscription: Apps of the day can be downloaded for free, but there's a monthly fee to keep using your own apps on BlueStacks.

Lost in translation: Android apps don't look or run quite the same in Windows, and the interface and controls are different. Some apps are disappointing, but others translate well into Windows.

Bottom Line

Despite some growing pains, BlueStacks App Player is recommended for anyone who wants to open up the Android world on their PC or laptop.

"Unstable connection to your Google account for App sync"

November 16, 2014

 |  Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.9.4.4078

Pros

Probably the most dowloaded program yet to play Android on the PC

Cons

Definitely in beta, a lot of bugs needs to be sorted out. For some reason I cannot connect to Google servers for App Sync

Summary

If you can't get it to work, delete and try again in a later month.
