Unlike the Windows version, BlueStacks for Mac only supports 17 Android apps for now such as Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, Pulse and more. It is very similar to it’s Windows counterpart where you run the BlueStacks desktop client and from there, you can then launch Android apps or sync supported apps from your Android phone or tablet using its Cloud Connect feature.

Note that most apps will run on their blown-up version like how they do on Android tablets. Functionality is very basic on this alpha version but apps run just fine. I don’t own a Mac so I’m unable to test it but here are some screenshots of the software.
