Be careful when downloading anything from the Softonic web site. They have a bad habit of attaching Ad-Ware to your download. As far as the Bluestacks Player app is concerned, I have heard nothing about it.

The official site for Bluestacks only lists a Windows version. They no longer seem to support Mac, so not sure how old the version from Softonic is and whether you should even install it..

Double stress avoiding ANYTHING from Softonic or CNET. Adware reigns supreme.
