Android emulator works with Windows now, Mac soon

BlueStacks announced it has released an alpha version of its free app player for Windows 7. The BlueStacks app player allows Android apps to run as fullscreen programs on Windows 7 PCs. There is also a push feature that will sync apps between an Android device and the desktop. Ten apps are preloaded, and up to 26 more apps can be installed with the alpha. The emulator gives Android developers access to a much larger market, and PC users access to the library of Android apps.

A Mac version is in development.

BlueStacks is fully compatible with Windows 7. CEO Rosen Sharma cautions that the software may run slower on older machines.
