BlueStacks, the developer of App Player application which allows Andoid apps to run on Windows-based personal computers, this week released its App Player beta for Apple Macintosh systems. From now on, users with Mac OS can also try applications only available on Google Android-powered gadgets.

The beta version of the App Player for Mac released today is software that will run any off the shelf Google Android app on a Mac, which opens up access to over 750 thousand apps. The product uses BlueStacks’ patent-pending Layercake technology to make this happen. To date, BlueStacks is the only software that can run mobile apps for Android on a Mac. It is available for download free from BlueStacks.com.

The PC version of the popular App Player software has been in beta since early 2012 and has been installed on over 5 million computers from the company’s website.

While the emulation software for Google Android may be useful for some developers creating software for both Apple iOS and Google Android devices on Mac systems, such people usually have actual smartphones and tablets in their possession for test purposes. Typical end-users will hardly use BlueStacks to play angry birds on Macs since the majority of Apple PC owners also have an iPhone or an iPad, or both.
