BlueStack’s is planning to bring more than 400,000 Android Apps to Windows 8 PC. BlueStack’s recently released the Alpha Version of “App Player” and now has updated the software to support Windows 8 and will also be compatible with Windows 8 beta.
The App Player integrates well with the Metro UI and creates a Tile for each App. And it supports almost each and every Android App with no porting or anything required with full 3D Hardware Acceleration. Although its pretty much obvious that Android Apps best run on Android smartphones and Windows 8 experience wont that fluid.
The real application of this software would be to help developers create Android Apps and it would mean development of Android Apps for Windows platform which sounds very exciting.
If you are interested in this simulator you can download an early alpha version of it and try it right now.
Windows 8 is Microsoft’s first operating system built with mobility in mind, using the new “Metro” user interface. BlueStacks will integrate over 400,000 Android apps seamlessly into the operating system, where they will take the form of tiles alongside other programs.
BlueStacks is actively collaborating with top PC manufacturers to pre-load the BlueStacks App Player on Ultrabooks, tablets, notebooks and all-in-one desktop PCs.
