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

The 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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
