Android apps on Windows 8?

Android apps on Windows 8? | Windows 8 Apps | Scoop.it

Do you plan to get a Windows 8 laptop, tab or PC but wonder if thoudands of Windows 8 Apps will be ready before you go Metro?


A software company thinks there's no need to wait!


"BlueStacks is planning to bring over 400,000 Android applications to Windows 8 this year. The company originally released its "App Player" software for Windows 7 in October, but it's now compatible with Windows 8. The best Android apps will simply run as desktop apps under Windows 8, very much like the previous Windows 7 app, and without any porting required. In fact, BlueTracks claims it is the only program worldwide that can run native ARM-based or x86 Android apps on Windows PCs and tablets. Android's Market just hit the 400,000 mark, and BlueStacks hopes to bring the majority of them to Windows 8."


Sounds cool? Watch the demo video made by The Verge to get an early look at the technology.

Danica Kloes's curator insight, March 4, 11:01 AM

I think that OneDrive already sounds a lot better than the SkyDrive we have right now. I can't say that SkyDrive is bad because I don't really use it, but it didn't seem that important except to back up files. The idea of more free storage is good, because the couple times I checked out SkyDrive I felt like they really weren't offering enough (I believe it was only a couple GB). The real-time collaboration feature will make things much easier on students in particular; you won't have to worry about meeting up to work on some things anymore. The video sharing isn't very innovative, but it's convenient for people that share videos often. And for the people that have the Windows phone, I'm sure they will appreciate the new OneDrive app.
