This is still a work in progress, so it's unfair to comment on the fact that you can't load any old Android executable in there, and you are using a mouse/trackpad where touch support is required. However I can comment that this app makes a background process called uHD-Kal run when you login and then a bunch of others called uHD-Pal. Each one uses up resources and I don't normally mind but this is up to 5% of my memory. Currently seeking the instructions on how to uninstall this.

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

Fantastic product. I didn't think I could ever achieve the level of lag and general non-compliance with a software that I had come to familiarize with my shotty android tablet. It being on my Mac and being even more difficult to download was a nice perk as well... after a lot of trial and error, troubleshooting, research on the new and "improved support" for Mac High Sierra; I had to go into system preferences, security and force allow the permission of this app. log in took a while, I thought "fine, I'm sure that's a one time thing as it's logging into my google account," but even thereafter the apps were just as long-loading, buggy and with all the lag and unexpected errors I had come to endear while playing on my droid device. TL;DR: If you're doing this to transfer clash Royale from a nonfunctioning droid to iOS, do this once and only once to log into facebook and then save the hard drive space and uninstall Bluestacks

Not worth the trouble. Even on an i7 MBP, Bluestacks is slow and buggy. I can't believe they even market this to play games with. It just amplifies the performance problems and general lag inherent in Android.

This app stinks, Tried to install ATT/Uverse app, and everytime it launches, it immediately crashes when you try to select a channel to watch. I have OS 10.13.6, (latest)
