What is Bluestacks and Why we need it?

What is Bluestacks?

Bluestacks is an Android emulator for your PC that will basicly let you run ANY Android application.

You need to install Bluestacks because there is no actual version of Retrica for PC so you need to “emulate” it.

This video will show you a tutorial about how to install Retrica on your PC after you install Bluestacks.

You can download Bluestacks from here.

Possible problems that may occur with Bluestacks are that many applications do not recognize it as a “cell phone” (not that it is), which makes it unable to install of them. I’ve had similar experiences before but not with too many applications. Retrica runs just fine.

There may be problem altho when you are trying to use some of your hardware in addition to Bluestacks, like your microphone or camera. There may be some issues or you may not be able to use them at all since the software is still in beta test and we can’t expect everything to be perfect.

For those of you who already own a smartphone with Android OS Bluestacks offers something like synchronization and automatically installs all applications that you have on your smartphone so that you can use them on your PC. You can play your favourite games!

Disadvantage is that it requires significant amount of hardware resources and for those of you with very old computers (like 10 years old) it might not run properly.

Still even with that, the sacrifice is worth it, with Bluestacks you will have Android with you on your big a** display playing your favourite games or using your favourite apps!
