If you want to run an Android app on your desktop, you need BlueStacks App Player. This free tool for Windows and Mac puts a virtual smartphone on your screen, complete with the Google Play Store so you can find and run almost any game or app you fancy.
It's particularly handy if you want to test an app you're developing, you don't currently own an Android device, or you want to do something crafty like uploading photos from your PC or Mac to Instagram.
