    "Wasting Your Time"

    June 10, 2013  |   By carlos-teran

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.5.107

    Pros

    None for the Mac version. Probably the PC version really works, for all the buzz.

    Cons

    It doesn't work. It just says "loading". After uninstalling, reinstalling, etc, that won't change.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time.

    April 6, 2013  |   By fastfonz

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.5.107

    Pros

    So far its ok, but like a limited demo. I can run a few apps, they run ok but I can't add new apps.

    Cons

    Can't add apps or enter settings.

    Summary

    It might turn out to be a quite enjoyable program. Best of luck to the developer. Looking forward to updating this review.

    "Would be great - If it worked."

    March 21, 2013  |   By rrobich

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.5.107

    Pros

    Worked great the first time I opened it! I was so excited to use it.

    Cons

    Hasn't gotten past the "Loading" screen since the first time I opened and used it. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, new version, moving com.bluestacks files, deleting those files, etc. Nothing works. Wish it did.

    Summary

    Was great for a few hours, doesn't work anymore.

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.3.151

    Pros

    Love playing apps like Drag Racing on my MacBook Pro

    Runs the apps faster than on my phone

    Responsive customer service

    Cons

    Ran into a big (couldn't install) but customer support helped me figure it out

    Still in alpha mode so the website says

    Summary

    Definitely worth a download - very user-friendly for an alpha release

    Its good fun to see the product working as well as it does on Windows

    "Works very well, but crowd your desktop/launchpad"

    July 11, 2012  |   By teixeiras

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.2.110

    Pros

    Very Fast

    Make an android application feels like home.

    Cons

    Small number of applications by default.

    Each android application installed on bluestack it create a new entrance at Launchpad. And create a new Shortcut group on Dock, and add the application on Dock, and add on top bar.... Every place will have a mark from the software.

    Summary

    The application works very well, but I had to uninstall it to recovery my uncrowded and organized desktop/Launcpad.

    "Crash and Burns Immediately on Use"

    June 28, 2012  |   By gregorysreid

    Version: BlueStacks App Player 0.2.1.17

    Pros

    There are probably some advantages, but since it crashes immediately I can't get to them

    Cons

    See the Pro section, above.

    Summary

    This Bluestacks application downloaded and installed just fine. It came with a small set of apps (e.g. Facebook). Immediately when opening any of the apps, the Bluestacks App Player crashes on the Mac. On all of the apps...

    Save your time. I am going to wait for a 'real' release. This one is a '0.x' version so no surprise that it doesn't work at all.

    Bluestacks a great idea, but so was the cold fusion nuclear reactor... LOL
