Bluestacks brings Android apps to the Mac

If you love Android apps, then you are probably familiar with Bluestacks. Bluestacks is actually a platform that will allow users to download and play Android apps on your PC. Early this year, Bluestacks beta was released for Windows. I myself use the software application a lot, synching my smartphone every now and then via Bluestacks Cloud Connect. But it looks like the people behind the ingenious creation is bringing Bluestacks to Mac as well. The company announced today that it will be releasing a Mac version of Bluestacks in public alpha. The software is powered by BlueStacks’ patent-pending LayercakeTM technology.

The initial release features several apps from the company’s developer partners, such as HandyGames, Creative Mobile and Pulse, with the next release scheduled to expand things even more. “By bringing Android Apps to Mac we are breaking open the Apple ecosystem, which has traditionally been closed. Also, Android is struggling because of a lack of tablet applications. Developers now have an incentive to build hi­‐resolution apps to work on the resolutions like retina displays on the new Mac for example,” BlueStacks CEO Rosen Sharma said. If you love testing Android apps on your Mac, you can get the alpha version here.
