Well, its a good news to all Android developers who want to test/run their Android applications on Windows based PC, Tablet or laptop.
BlueStacks has recently announced the alpha version of BlueStacks App Player for Windows PC, a free software download that allows users to quickly run their favorite Android apps on any Windows PC, tablet or laptop.
In addition, the apps can be run full screen providing a unique and new user experience.
With 56 per cent of smartphone consumers purchasing an Android device in the last three months, it's apparent that Android is rapidly becoming a preferred operating system, said a press release.
"The openness of Android is enabling innovation around the world. We are grateful to Google and others for their contributions. This is also a social equalizer in the US and countries like Brazil, India and China, where a large percentage of the population who can only afford smartphones can now enjoy and benefit from the ubiquity of apps on the Android platform," said Rosen Sharma, president and CEO of BlueStacks.
"We look forward to getting feedback from our users on the alpha release," he added.
The BlueStacks App Player now gives users one-click access to their favorite Android apps right on their Windows PC. Both Windows and Android users stand to benefit greatly from this capability.
The release further added that for application developers in the Android ecosystem, the BlueStacks App Player opens up a market of over a billion PC users. BlueStacks does not require any additional work on the part of developers and the apps run unmodified on the Windows PC.
