Bluestacks brings Android apps to the Surface Pro
Windows 8 users, especially those with a Surface Pro, can now enjoy up to 750,000 new apps for their devices, with Bluestacks launching a new beta version of its Android app player.
Advertised as "optimised for Surface Pro, the latest version of Bluestacks joins builds for previous versions of Windows and a version for Macs.
The Android App player is sort of like an emulator that lets you run any Android app on devices which are not powered by the Android OS. Bluestacks handles the code and the user interface for the apps.
That actually sounds quite cool, TBH.
It's still in beta, and supposedly laggy as hell, but it's a nice idea.
