Run Android applications on Windows with BlueStacks


Since I do not use a smartphone I miss out on the functionality provided through iPhone or Android applications written by my university for the use of students and staff. For Android applications, I found a saviour: BlueStacks. This is a Windows program that allows you to install Android applications from the marketplace and run them. I found the search functionality in the marketplace pretty useless, but the installation and execution of applications worked without a hitch. Do note that this is not a smartphone or tablet emulator and nor it does it emulate the Android operating system. It can be used only to execute Android applications.

Tried with: BlueStacks Beta-1
