[Off-topic] Running Android Apps on Windows Desktop Pc

Sometimes it can be practical to have access to Android Apps on your desktop computer.
I tried Bluestacks It seems to work perfectly, from there you have access to all kinds of Android apps, games and other useful stuff directly on your computer. It is very easy to set up and get running. Yes, it works like 100% Android phone only that it is in your computer.

Thanks for the tip. I also use the ARC extension on Chrome for this purpose.

I have been using blue stack for over 2years now and it works fine for me all the time. I usually keep heavy applications to save space on my android phone on my PC.

bluestacks works for me, but it is very slow. Is there something comparable that might be faster?
I am on a Macbook Pro.

Go for Genymotion. You can use tons of different devices and control things such as battery level and your gps location. I tried Genymotion and quite happy with speed for App development, haven’t tried gaming yet.

IMO this is so fun to watch.

I personally use Android-x86 if I really need to though.

I mostly use it for novelty.

Why is there so much spam from single-post wonders in this thread?
