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

BlueStacks App Player is currently in beta which means that problems are to be expected. There is currently only a Windows version available, but there is a Mac edition in the pipeline. 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.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
