    Run Android Apps on Windows PC with BlueStacks App Player


    Here's something new and intriguing. A new startup company called BlueStacks, has unveiled an early alpha version of their BlueStacks App Player software. This software allows you to install and use Android apps on your Windows based PC without having to modify your Windows OS. Initially, the alpha will be available as a free download, with limited use. This test version comes pre-loaded with ten apps, and can support an extra 26. BlueStacks also has a free Cloud Connect app, that will help you port third-party apps directly from your handset to your computer. Certain apps are currently prohibited in the alpha version, like the popular Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, but these will be made available later once the finished and paid version of the BlueStacks app is finally released. Above is a video demo/teaser, and below is a download link.

    Looks like a cool Andy emulator for Windows. This will undoubtedly increase android's popularity among the masses.

    The only problem I see with BlueStacks is that to use their cloud you have to associate it with a Facebook account. Many people are refusing to do this which is making the developers look for another options. They have ask if people would agree to associating it to their Google account. I'm not sure about that either.
