[Tutorial] How to Run Android Apps On Windows Or Mac for free

You may or may not have heard of the BlueStacks project in the recent months, and for those of you who haven’t; BlueStacks is a project designed to run Android apps on any Windows PC or any Mac PC. It’s been in development for recent months and today the Alpha version was sent out to registered testers, however the good news for you is that it has also just been released publicly! I have to say that even though it’s not the most useful thing in the world it is pretty fun to play some of the Android games on PC!

You can watch the below video for a quick demonstration of how BlueStacks works before downloading, and remember that it’s only in Alpha stages and therefore it’s very limited in functionality at this time. Great props to the BlueStacks team on such an original piece of software! You can grab the program from here.

The Windows 8 experience (Pokki, Rainmeter, Builds)

Since the preview of windows 8 a lot of  stuff modeled after the style has emerged around the web. Here goes a try to sum it all up.

POKKI

The windows gadget bar was the best thing when Vista came out (however flawed it was :P)

The adaptation of the same into mac like applications has really got us all excited. The first freeware that actually gives us a feel of this windows revolution is Pokki. Small widgets are placed in the taskbar and on being clicked they open up as small popups. The application is beautifully designed using HTML5, CSS and Javascript. It has been around for a few months, however the first beta came out yesterday.

Leaked builds!!

Apart from all contreversy this is Win8. But it is a rather old milestone version so it doesnt have any of that epic live homescreen or fancy shit of sorts. Dont get pissy. Programmers love to show off so I can assure you one developer or the other will end  up leaking it to the world. Till then (Build 7580)- [LINK]

UPDATE: The latest build is 7989. Unfortunately, its only availible in X64. Here it is- [link] [link]

RED PILL ENABLER

“Unlock all features locked by slc.dll in all windows 8 build (7955,7959,7989,…) x86 and x64, without patching any dll (It just add a new slc.dll, and rename the old slc.dll to slcrp.dll).”

However it is rather buggy but most have found it to be brilliant. Here- [LINK]

[Tutorial] How to get Windows 8 Menu for Windows 7

*DO NOT USE THIS WITH ANY OTHER OS.THIS IS ONLY MEANT FOR WINDOWS 7*

*THIS IS STILL IN ITS BETA STAGES*

Lock Screen

When launching this program, the first thing you’ll notice is the lock screen, with a smooth orange background a clock. There are also 3 buttons, although they don’t do anything at the moment. You can dismiss this screen by simply dragging it upwards

Web Browser

One of the things you’ll notice right away is the fact that this program is essentially an elaborate web browser. The first thing you’ll see is a tile-based interface that lets you access popular sites and social networks. As of yet, there is no clear way to change which icons should show up on this page, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a solution for this in a future version. There’s also a search bar that launches Google searches.

Multi-Tasking

Aside from a browser, this alternative shell also attempts to enhance multitasking. From anywhere on this interface, dragging your cursor to the left will display a small panel. Clicking on it will reveal your regular Windows desktop. Surprise!

Here’s a Video :

ENJOY !
