Running Android Apps on Windows via Bluestacks
Date Added: Aug 26, 2011
|Microsoft Windows has been and continues to be a widely used Operating System platform for Laptops and Computers. If Windows is the titan in terms of Desktop and Laptop computers, then Android OS is on the move for becoming the tough contender with respect to smartphones and tablet devices which are gaining exponentially increasing popularity as portable multimedia entertainment and business devices.
Not all the tech freaks today have a device for using the Android OS, and some of its applications are very innovative and lucrative. The deficiency of an Android device for running its applications and getting a hands on experience of its refined interface can be fulfilled if you have a simple Windows PC with BlueStacks in it.
The program lets you run Android applications on a Windows enabled computer by virtualization technology which the company claims to be much faster than the machine level emulation. The technology was always expected to come in usage given that Android and its applications are open source unlike iOS applications. This technology in itself is not new but the Bluestacks software is definitely an innovation by acting as an easy to use emulator for Android on Windows. Its not a dual boot solution, but just another program which can be launched on your PC just like any other program and lets you work on Android OS as on a real Android device.
On the first look, the application seems like the outcome of a remarkably innovative engineering process, but its not so given that you already had Android SDK which came with a complete Android emulator program for Windows. Since its just the magic of virtualization, the application does not have access to the official Google Android Marketplace, but can access Amazon AppStore for downloading applications.
By now, you must be curious about the utility of the program. The simple answer for this is that your PC will act as a platform for running some of the popular and utility oriented applications for Android. Since PCs generally have a higher system configuration than portable Android devices, you do not need to worry about its performance and compatibility.
Today the Android platform is considered to be a relatively secure environment. However if you want to know more about security software and other application for your device you can visit our section on Internet.
