How to Download Android Apps & Games on BlueStacks 2

BlueStacks recently released its successor and that is known as BlueStacks 2. This new Android emulator is really promising if you are looking for best and most reliable Android emulator ever. They have really improved this emulator and all the heavy games are working just fine in it. What’s more to it is that they have added lots of other features like sidebar tool and with that you can do many things like download APK, move files, capture a screenshot etc.

The most vital feature of BlueStacks 2 is multitasking. The UI of this new emulator is really neat and the new multitasking feature works like a boss. But still they have introduced lots of new things in this new emulator you will face bugs as well. We ourselves find some bugs in multitasking even though it didn’t affect the app or game we have used so far.

When you open any app, it should open in a new tab as it is a feature in multitasking but some apps don’t open in new tabs and this is sometimes really annoying. Screen size changer also don’t work pretty well sometimes but when it comes to gaming, it will work pretty smooth and better then old BlueStacks.
