Apps are one of the main ways that people interact with technology but they’re more of a phone based option which bites if you want to play a game but don’t want to drain your phone battery and/or data. If you want to use mobile apps without your mobile, check out BlueStacks, the software that lets you use Android apps on your desktop.
Let’s get this out of the way now, yes you can use this to play Pokemon Go but it’s against PG’s TOS so if you want to know how, you’re going to have to look up the instructions yourself. If you’re into playing any other type of game though, you can use this software to access your favorite mobile game or service on your PC.
Primarily this is used to play games on your computer but you can also access other services like Snapchat and Instagram with this. If you don’t have a touchscreen computer though, navigating your favorite mobile game with a mouse may take some getting used to. It works on both Macs and PCs. BlueStacks is free.
