How would you feel if somebody says that there will be a time when a user will be able to run android applications on a Windows desktop? The title of this article also says the same thing and yes, it seems that there will be a time in the near future that even windows desktop users will be able to play android games on their machines.

The company BlueStacks have announced that they will help PC users to take advantage of momentum generated by Android ecosystem by enabling them to run Android applications on their x-86 machines including notebooks, tablets and AOI computers. With this convertible form factor, the company is looking to reduce the dependency of certain applications on certain platforms allowing users to carry only a single device at a time. This will also benefit PC manufacturers to boost the machines lifetime and their margins as well.

For users, BlueStacks will make it easier to find and install Android apps from the windows desktop. Moreover, BlueStacks is also looking to tie up with online stores like Amazon, Slideme or Getjar from which users can buy android apps and can install them on multiple tablets, phones and PCs.

With this new development, even broader businesses are expected to get advantages. Rather than looking out for honeycomb tablets, businesses will look to run particular applications on the standard x86 machines. More importantly, .apk files from Android will be converted to .msi package files which will make its distribution and installation quite easy. It will also allow IT administrators to schedule the launch and installation of dedicated apps according to requirement.

Android OS from Google is an “in demand” thing in mobile phones these days. Half of mobile buyers look out for mobile phones with Android OS. Android OS is an open source OS and many users have taken advantage of it to develop fantastic applications which can be used by the entire android community. So, let us look at a few must have applications.
1.Google Voice:
It is probably the best ever application on the android platform. Google voice provides a phone number through which a user can make calls to multiple users. In fact, it also provides user a kind of a wrapper number to your original number, so when a user makes a call, it goes out from Google voice number which hides user’s original phone number.

2. ATK or Advanced Task Killer
When you have a phone with Android mobile, you are going to have multiple applications running on your phone. ATK or Advanced Task killer allows killing an application if a user feels that that a particular application is degrading the performance of the phone. It also has a widget to kill all the applications at the same time.
3. Dropbox
As the name suggests, it’s a cloud application to share things with different machines or mobile phones. It is also extended to Android and interacts with different apps to open different kinds of files.
4. Droid Analytics
I am not sure why Google hasn’t come up with an application for Google Analytics. So, the best application a user can get for Google Analytics kind of analysis is Droid Analytics. mAnalytics is also a good android app to look out for.
