BlueStacks Debuts its App Player for Windows® 8 at 2012 International CES®By admin ,Friday, January 13th, 2012
2012 International CES was the perfect platform for BlueStacks to announce the launch of its App Player for Windows 8. The player will enable Windows 8 users to access thousands of apps and games from their Window 8 operating system using the Metro User Interface.
BlueStacks has already launched a version of App Player Platform for Windows 7 last year. With the development of another version for Windows 8, the cross platform software maker is confident that the player will be an added advantage to the Metro User Interface. “The Metro UI is beautiful, but the number one thing Windows 8 is missing is apps. This changes all that,” said Rosen Sharma, chief executive officer, BlueStacks.
During the demonstration at the 2012 International CES, BlueStacks revealed the fully functional integration of all kinds of apps on the Metro User interface. It will also be able to integrate more than 400,000 Android apps. BlueStacks has very meticulously created tiles for the Android apps look, which will make them look Metro apps.
BlueStacks is expected to launch the beta avatar of App Player in February. The company has already made partnership with several hardware companies including AMD who already demonstrated the player at the CES booth. Hewlett-Packard will also have the software pre-installed on its All-in-One PCs; and Taiwanese PC maker InHon will integrate the software in its upcoming carbon-fiber ultrabooks in March.
The useful App Player Platform will definitely be of great help to Windows 8 users for accessing all kinds of apps. To know more about the platform, visit the BlueStacks website.
