  • Is the app available on Amazon's Appstore? If so, go to the app and click on Test Drive:

Went to Bluestacks – their program is in "alpha" phase and unavailable for download.

Odd. Pretty sure it didn't look like that last time I was on that site.

 

Something else I haven't really looked into, but looks promising: http://youwave.com/

 

Sorry about taking 2 weeks to reply! My computer's been busted and I've barely been keeping up with the internet via my iPod. I dragged out my server-laptop (which needs a constant power supply as the battery is broken, making it horrible for most stuff) and am using that for now.

Amazon has this "test drive apps" feature on their website. Although it doesn't work with all apps (yet), it allows you to try Android apps on your computer. Never tried it myself, but it sounds cool.
