BlueStacks

Previously a Windows only affair, BlueStacks app player allows folks to load up Android apps onto their personal computers and run them directly within a slim, virtualized environment. Today, at Google I/O 2012 BlueStacks has taken another jump forward and released their Alpha build of BlueStacks for Mac OS X. I've given it a run through to see how well it works and well, it works like an Alpha meaning it's all a little bit buggy but that's why BlueStacks is offering it up, so they can get feedback on it. If you're interested in giving it a go, you'll find the link below.
