Run Android On Windows 7 or Mac OSX

Business Man Working Wirelessly and Mobile Stock PhotoEver find a cell phone app so cool that you wish you could also run it from your desktop pc?  That’s what I wanted to do, so I started googling.  The first few things I found were complicated, required multiple installations of different programs, etc etc.  I didn’t want to really fart around.  I found a great free app now in beta that does exactly what I wanted to.  Give BlueStacks a try, and I’m sure you’ll love it.  Even if you’ve never owned an Android powered tablet, cell phone, or device, you can still run Android through your PC with BlueStacks, and not miss out on anything.  Or, maybe you own an iphone and have Android app envy?  Yes, there actually are some Android apps not available on iOS.  If you are an app designer / UI designer, you may also enjoy this piece of software for testing out your apps on your desktop or laptop pc.

This opens a world of possibilities for you.  You now will have the ability to play Android games on your pc, to use Voxer, and any other app that is only available through your smartphone.  Yes, Google chrome runs some of them, but not all.  The apps FLY from your computer’s processing power (especially on my i7 desktop, compared to my little LG smartphone with its chincy slow processor) and bandwidth speeds are as fast as your pc’s as well.

I’m not a referral or endorser of this app, I just though it was so amazing that I wanted to share.  Chime in with a comment below, and let me know what you think of it.
