Run Android apps in Windows with BlueStacks App Player

Ordinarily, if you want to run Android apps on a platform other than on an Android device, it is necessary to install a Software Development Kit. Unless you are a software developer, this may be something that you are not particularly keen on doing, and this is where BlueStacks App Player may be able to help as it enables you to install and run Android apps under Windows.

Working much like an emulator, the program enables users of Windows 7 to install Android apps on their PC and synchronize them with a device running Android. Making use of the company's cloud connect service, apps can be synced wirelessly without the need to remember to connect your Android device to your computer.

The installation includes a number of bundled apps which can be used in windowed or full screen mode, and a standard mouse and keyboard can be used in place of a touch screen. BlueStacks App Player provides an interesting way to try out new apps as well as a means of making your favourite apps, and games, available on additional platforms

standard version of the app allows for a limited number of apps to be installed, but an upcoming premium version will allow for an unlimited number of apps.

Verdict:

There are teething problems at the moment, but this is an interesting app for Android users.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
