Bluestacks is a program that lets you emulate and run applications and games developed for the Android operating system. The program works as a player and has a very simple interface.
Use your Google Play account
Once you've installed the program, you can log in with your Google Play account if you have one, in order to access the list of all applications and games you have downloaded or have on your Android device. If you don’t yet have an account, you can create one from scratch and start enjoying all the available applications.
In its version for Mac, Bluestacks is a bit limited in the number of apps it includes by default, though it does include the basics like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, and games like Angry Birds and Temple Run. More apps are becoming available with each update. If you have the .APK files for your applications and games, you can easily install them by clicking on them (Bluestacks recognizes and starts the installation automatically).
Bluestacks works quickly and applications and games run at speed, without any lagging. You can use the mouse and keyboard as normal, and configure settings including language, accounts, and applications to adapt Bluestacks to your needs.
