    Good article.
    but can we run android apps on Mac os or Linux with BlueStacks?

    • Shais

      Yes you can install it on Mac OS with BlueStacks and ARChon Runtime for Linux.

    As developer, I use Genymotion for simulating android apps. It’s faster then Bluestake 🙂

    • Shais

      Exactly, it a perfect app testing tool for developers. The BlueStack is for normal daily usage, such as connecting to play store and installing favorite apps and games.
      No code, No error debugging, just plug and play.

    That is a good app we can install apps and play on it but there is some apps that we can not install those, like instageram and similar apps like this.

      I tested for playing games. The app you mentioned is social media App. So it doesn’t support third party login process for social media management Apps.
