BlueStacks released a beta version of their Android app player for Windows PCs this morning, bringing with it access to 450,000 apps. They previously ran a closed alpha, but have gone public with this beta from what we can tell. For those not familiar, BlueStacks is an application that installs on your Windows computer and then allows you to run any Android app through it. This is a brilliant piece of software and one that developers should thoroughly embrace. Through something like BlueStacks, applications from devs can reach more than just Android devices and are now essentially a part of everyone’s Windows PC without the need for code tweaking. This app player does all of the work. Talk about an audience.
You can download the file from BlueStacks, however, their servers appear to be completely overloaded. When you get to the download page, make sure you the “Try a different installer” link. It will get you the full software.
