    I believe that their App Player has replaced their earlier versions of the virtualized Android Environment, this version is supposedly more user friendly and performs better.....

    App Player works well but IMO a bit expensive.

    I found a link to download Bluestacks 0.8.4.3036 on PHPNuke. It claims to be a free download but may have a wrapped installer containing malware/bloatware. If you decide to try it make sure you download it into a disposable virtual machine first and see what you actually get.

    App Player is bluestacks. I have fiddled around with it. Played Plants Vs Zombies 2, gmail, toddledo and it really works pretty well on my SP3.

    Still I have since found apps on Microsoft's App Store and haven't really needed it except for some casual games.

    I would suggest trying DuOS as an alternative. Full android environment, better performance than bluestacks. Granted its $10 after a 30 day trial, but has been well worth it to me.

    If you say so, I loaded everything on there, and it works like android. What is missing exactly?

    No it only loads the games and apps on the app store, not the android environment... there is a big difference
