Run android apps on your PC

Candy Crush on BlueStacks app player
There are multiple ways to emulate Android on a PC and you don't need to be a geek to do so.
We are Going to demonstrate one of the simplest ways to run Android apps and games on a windows based PC or a Mac using the BlueStacks app player.

The app player provided by BlueStacks is basically a virtual machine running on Android Jellybean with several optimizations,which allows you to run apps smoothly(to some extent!) and in a full screen mode.

STEP 1
download the BlueStacks installer for Windows(XP,VISTA,Win 7/8) or MAC OS X from the 
official website

STEP 2
Update your Graphic card drivers -
This step is very important as the player won't run unless you have the latest drivers.

STEP 3
Install the App player. BlueStacks can be installed on any location on your hard drive,however in Windows based systems all the application data will be stored on the C drive so you need to have sufficient empty space in the C drive.5 GB space should be enough for casual use.

STEP 4
Open BlueStacks,boot up of the app player might take some time.Log in to your google account just as you do with a new phone or Tablet.
you are now ready to run mobile apps on your PC or Mac.

APP INSTALLATION

ONLINE

  • You can use Google PLAY store,AMAZON app store or any other market for app installations.
  • PLAY store is not visible on the home screen,use the search button to search for any app in the play store.

OFFLINE
  • After finishing the installation all the APK files on your system will show the BlueStacks icon, just click on the APK file to install it on the app player.
