    You can also download Real APK Leecher, from xda-developers forum, to manually download apk files from Google Play, and theninstall them manually on Bluestacks

      Mr. Mishra,

      I have clearly mentioned in my question that I have installed BlueStack. Wanted alternate free options.

    You could install Android on a virtual machine such as VirtualBox. It's not difficult and it's free.

    Hey Rajaa, are you referring to the fact that Bluestacks doesn't have full access to the Play Store? Or are you having trouble installing Bluestacks? On my computer it installed without any problems and gave me immediate access to several apps, without even installing them.

    I assume you are referring to BlueStacks only having a limited number of default apps that it can access? Such as available within the Amazon App Store?

    BlueStacks was recently hacked to permit full access to the Google Play Store. It's now as easy as using your own phone to get apps.
