http://ubuntuforums.org – Is there any possible way to install bluestacks, or any other device that will allow me to use mobile apps on my ubuntu desktop? I have tried using an android emulator, it works, but can't log in to most things because of how slow it runs. If you know how,please tell me. If you know of any other software that does similar, isnt massive, and works properly, please let me know. (Hardware)
