Bluestacks for Windows 8, run it on your PC or tablet

It was only two days ago I put up a blog for Windows users to use Bluestacks on their PC.  Now Bluestacks has launched a full fledged version for Windows 8.  This means you can run your favourite Android games and Apps on the Windows 8 PC or Surface Pro Tablets

This may come as a huge relief not only for Surface Pro users but Windows 8 users in general as the Windows Market lacked the depth of good quality Apps.  

BlueStacks has released a Surface Pro-optimized, officially supported Windows 8 version of its popular App Player software. The program is free to download and can run any Android app on the new Surface Pro. BlueStacks also announced a new site: GetYourAppsBack.com where new Windows 8 and Surface Pro users can download BlueStacks’ software and bring any mobile apps to their device. This is actually a veiled attack on the recent, Google's Get Your Google Back video campaign.

“We’ve had our users asking for a Win8 version for a long time,” said BlueStacks CEO Rosen Sharma. “Now that it’s finally available on our website we’re looking forward to getting feedback and building on the experience. The number of mobile apps being written overall is expanding exponentially and Microsoft has not added apps to the handful it has. Our goal is to get people more value out of their Surface Pro and Win8 devices.”

Having announced several OEM partnerships in recent months, BlueStacks also recently passed 5 million downloads of its mobile software across Mac and PC.

The downloads all came from the company’s homepage, BlueStacks.com. Additional download numbers via OEM partnerships have not been released, though the company says they are healthy. “The response in the OEM community has been as strong or stronger than the surprising numbers we’ve been seeing from organic downloads,” said BlueStacks head of Global Sales and Strategic Alliances, Apu Kumar. “We seem to have reached a tipping point where we’ve brought mobile apps to so many computers worldwide, the remaining OEM’s customers are asking for these apps also. We’re the perfect conduit to get popular programs back on the PC.”

The company’s site at GetYourAppsBack.com allows new Surface Pro and Win8 PC owners to get apps from their phone and any additional apps they want into their Win8 PC, running them fullscreen and touch-enabled. Visit the site and download it now.

Please post your comments regarding what you think about Bluestacks for Windows Surface Pro.
