Want to create an Android environment on your PC to run your favorite Android apps? You can, with Bluestacks App Player.
I have been using this to test the Android Apps I come across prior to installing on my Android Devices (tablets and smartphones) or recommending them here on the blog.
The Bluestacks App Player installs just like any other Windows software. Once installed you can connect the Google Play Store or the Amazon App Store, as you would with any other Android device. I have found it to run very smoothly. You have option to run the player in a window or full screen.
It is also available for the Mac OSX platform, as well.
