A publicly downloadable version of the Bluestacks Android app player has recently been released for Windows. Should we accept questions related to using Bluestacks here?
On the one hand, it's not a full Android environment (no home screen, settings menu, that kind of stuff). On the other hand, it appears to be running an emulator instance under-the-hood, so you can, for example, interact with Bluestacks using
adb and so forth.
