Usually I use this on a PC, happen to have a macbook pro to work with and I thought, hey I'll install bluestacks on it so I can access my home security (Ring \ Petcube cams) and keep them up without draining my battery. This has to be the worst install experience I've seen in a long time (including custom configurations in linux) so much for "mac just works" sure, if you're doing piddly crap from the store. anyway, had to go in and turn on 3 or 4 security options, none of which were simple "click link and accept prompt" these were "dig and find what it's asking for, unlock, give it password, relock" Reading here, I don't think anyone's actually gotten it to work. I followed other reviewer's suggestions and uninstalled it. I guess I'll just have to keep my trusty lenovo tablet for Android apps.

They subscription bombed my email address. Complete scumbags. Getting over 500 B.S. emails a day with no way to stop it. Ive had the address for 15 years and now i have to kill it. I only wish i could find one of these people. DO NOT DOWNLOAD BLUESTACKS.

BlueStacks has the ability to run Android-based apps but I really wasn't sure that it would be safe. Handheld operating systems are often a good target. I always used Bitdefender on my Android phone and tablet. I wanted to run a few light games, since macOS Catalina is so light on any games. Even the light games that used to run are few. They could probably be updated and re-built, but who would invest the time? Bluestacks works decently, and to a certain extent Google Play Games protects you from bad games. The problem I've found is that it keeps two cores working, plus my dedicated graphics hardware, and it's been to 104 degrees C. I'm using a mid-2012 MacBook Pro with GeForce 650M, 512 MB graphics RAM. It works slightly better than the original Nexus 7 tablet but not as good as the 2nd generation Nexus 7 tablet. Hopefully, it improves.

I got BlueStacks on my macOS and I can't use it because it asks for an update, and every time i try to update my mac says the update is not supported, uninstall the previous version, reboot your system and install again. I tried doing that 5 or 6 times, and it never worked, and I thought there would be a button to skip the update or something, but there's not. I'm really sad I can't use BlueStacks on my new mac, because I used it a lot on my pc.

Well unfortunately it seems my Mac is too old so as a result I can’t run bluestacks. Bluestacks won’t run on the version of last software that Apple support so sadly won’t work.

Tried multiple times to install with the latest version from their website. Will not install properly as MacOS thinks it is corrupt. Overrode by installing as Root User. Crashes on launch. This used to work but no longer seems to. Suggest not wasting your time with the current version but waiting for an announcement of a new release after Oct 6, 2019 if there ever is one.

I am using High Sierra and the application is always "Starting the Engine". It doesn't work fine. Don't waste your time.
