Sometimes a good app or game is better served on a much larger screen than what you would normally get with an Android smartphone or Android tablet device. The only problem is that you would normally have to connect your device to a monitor or TV with some form of HDMI cabling specific to your device's output port available.

Things just got a whole lot easier for using Android apps on a larger screen, without any cables and connections. The BlueStacks App Player for Android apps has just announced they have a beta available for download upon registration. The App player connects to a couple of Android App market partners such as Amazon App Store, and GetJar. You can also sync your Android device with your PC after installing the BlueStacks beta application on your Windows PC. They email you a PIN, where you can then enter it into the BlueStacks app. It will then start syncing your already installed Android apps from your smartphone or tablet through a tool called "Cloud Connect". Even if you don't have an Android device, you can still get a few apps from the available list through BlueStacks itself. It runs pretty smooth so far, and the apps work perfectly as though they were on your Android device. Be sure you have your PC video cards latest drivers installed or updated as BlueStacks will install based on your video cards optimization.

The beta is available here to sign up for and download. Check out the video tour of BlueStacks beta below.
