  10. I haven't tried before with YouWave and Android Installer. Just now I came to know that Android apps can also be played on PC using other applications than BlueStacks emulator. Worth sharing with my circle. Thanks Charan!

  11. This is an android emulator in which you cannot install google play instead you can use another such market which is by default available in every bluestacks application.


  12. HI SAI..

  13. Sai Charan sorry for this comment.

    Ohhh Lord, people what's wrong. Please read comments u guys asking the same question about it 100 times. Bluestack can be used with any Windows OS XP or higher not Windows Phone. Because windows phones doesn't have enough memory. Search YouTube if your have problems with installation.

    I like doesnt loads memory tooo much. 🙂

    Good luck.
