If you’ve ever wished that some of your Android apps were available on your Windows computer, it may not be such a pipe dream after all. BlackStacks has officially launched the alpha version of their App Player for Windows, which essentially an application for your Windows computer that virtualizes Android on your computer, thus allowing you to run Android applications.
It comes preinstalled with several apps and users can add up to 26 more. A premium version of the software is said to be on the way which will let you install unlimited number of apps, as well as giving the user the ability to play games. As far as emulating finger swipes, apparently you can convert your mouse actions into virtual touch screen actions as well. If you’ve ever felt the need to play Fruit Ninja on your Windows PC, perhaps this could be a solution.
We’re not sure what sort of uses App Player has, perhaps more will be revealed over time, but for now it does look like has some potential, novel as it may be. If you’re interested in being an alpha tester for BlueStack’s App Player, head on down to their website for more info.
