Earlier today, the developers of BlueStacks App Player released the alpha utility for OS X-based computers that enables them to run apps intended for Google’s Android mobile operating system. Demonstrated over a year ago, BlueStacks promised OS X and Windows users alike the ability to run virtually any Android app on their computers – a revolutionary concept to say the least.
While only the alpha version of BlueStacks App Player is currently for Macs, the developers intend to add more features and will support over 400,000 Android apps in the “very near future”:
The BlueStacks App Player for Mac OSX (alpha) supports both Lion and Snow Leopard. You can test drive a fixed set of curated apps for the first release (alpha-1). In the very near future, BlueStacks will let you select from over 400,000 Android apps to play on your Mac.
For now, Mac users who wish to install the utility will be able to easily download and run 17 initial apps.
The download for BlueStacks Player alpha, along with more information on the project can be found on the developer’s official site. Stay tuned for additional information regarding the peculiar and intriguing utility as it develops.
