Though natively devised for mobile devices, Android is no longer an operating system that can only be enjoyed on your smartphone or tablet – BlueStacks App Player replicates this Linux-based OS on your Windows PC or laptop for you to enjoy millions of Android apps and games with the luxury of a big screen.
Besides allowing you to connect to your Google account and download, install, and manage your favorite Android games and apps, BlueStacks can also import Windows files and folders into Android, manage your Google accounts, your contacts, and to sync your Android phone with your computer via Cloud Connect. Additionally, by downloading the right Android apps, you will be allowed to access files on your PC via BlueStacks, copy photos from Instagram or WhatsApp to your computer, or upload new photos to Instagram or new files to Dropbox. The possibilities are endless.
The program’s interface is attractive, modern, and – best of all – easy to navigate. With icons that will remind you of those already familiar controls on your mobile device and with clearly organized sections, you will find, download, and start enjoying your Android games and apps in no time. You can also use BlueStacks App Player as your regular browser, use your webcam with it, or simply enjoy playing your favorite mobile games on your PC. You may come across the odd app that doesn’t work as expected or that doesn’t behave as it does on your Android device – well, among the millions of Android apps out there, having to deal with a few of these hard-to-crack apps is more than understandable.
BlueStacks App Player is a free tool that will require you to put up with a few sponsored apps every now and then. Not a tragedy, but this may end up slowing down your system and overloading it with a number of unwanted apps. If you want to avoid this nuisance you may opt for a paid yearly subscription. Other than that, this is an extremely attractive utility for those who like enjoying their Android games and other apps anywhere and everywhere.
