The BlueStacks application was presented to the public during the Google I/O event. They even have a wedding ceremony that marries Mac and Android mascots. Does this mean you can now download and play android applications on your Mac?

BlueStacks brings App Player with which you can now run and play android applications on your Mac. This emulation platform is available as an alpha version for the Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard. When you install App Player it automatically creates an Android apps folder in your dock so you can easily access your applications. As this is only an alpha version of App Player so there are only 17 games and apps available for this right now. Some of them are Twitter, Seesmic, Paper Toss and Zebra Paint. Most of these apps run without any issues. Apparently Paper Toss worked a bit slow and FaceBook app is not yet available. According to BlueStacks they will be adding new Android apps every month in the Mac App Store. So you have to keep an eye on that and definitely all those applications are not absolutely free for the users.

Hi Kenneth,

Yes, you can now download and play Android applications on your Mac by using Bluestack. It allows you to access thousands of Android applications without buying an Android phone. And the great thing about Bluestack is that it's for free. Even though I don't have an Android phone, I am up-to-date with the current applications available on Android through Bluestack. Here's the link for Bluestack if ever you're interested in downloading it to your Mac,    http://www.bluestacks.com/bstks_mac.html

Hope this answers your question.
