Android apps to run on Macs via Bluestacks program
June 29 , 2012
Owners of Android smartphones can now run their favorite apps on an Apple Mac computer via a programe produced by start-up Bluestacks.
Bluestacks has produced a software wrapper that enables the phone apps run on a desktop Apple machine.
The release comes after an earlier software tool that helped Android apps make the jump from a phone to a Windows PC.
So far, only 17 Android developers, including Handy Games, Creative Mobile and Pulse, have signed up to make their apps available to run on a Mac.
A test version of the Mac software is now available for download on the company's website.
