These apps are built for smart devices like phones and tablets, but now you can test them out on your Mac. BlueStacks uses patent-pending virtualization software called "Layercake" which allows Android apps to run on different platforms. It works in a similar fashion to software like Parallels and VMWare.

 

Windows 8 has had a BlueStacks app for quite a while now, where it was released in March and has since had over 5 million downloads. You can grab BlueStacks App Player for Mac right here.
