    Has anyone tried Bluestacks on the Asus Vivotab Note 8? I am thinking about buying one off of Amazon, but I want to see if Bluestacks will work on it.

    As its a full PC BlueStacks will definitely work.

    The question is however, how well? I tried it on my Dell Venue, and it had some awkward orientation issue, but i don't know whether its relevant to the ASUS model.

    Hmmm...I just really want it to access my Google Play Books account and the Android version of the Kindle app. Do those render well?

    I gave it another spin and by the looks of it, it could have some orientation hiccups, but i think ive fixed much of my complaints by fiddling around with it. I think it'll be OK, not amazing, but I guess it should work.

    Thank you, Sir. I am not looking to do any crazy gaming or anything on it, so I am going to buy one and see how it works out.

    The Play Store renders sideways for me, but otherwise, apps work OK. (after poking with the app size (?) settings)

    I'm using Genymotion and works great. But forget about long-press actions in Android and fast typing.

    I've got some orientation issues running Bluestacks on an Asus Vivotab Note 8. You suggested that you had managed to fix them with some fiddling around. Any chance you can describe your actions as I'm currently getting nowhere... Thanks!

    I would've been able to tell.

    anyways, I noticed it has a fullscreen/not-fullscreen toggle and hitting that can change things up a bit, depends though.

    I've since ditched BlueStacks since it asks for payment, either in downloading a bunch of apps or in money.

    But I couldn't fix the play store.
    I also fiddled with the settings, I think, memory serving, there could have been some orientation settings or something related to screen in the settings.

    argh, I literally poked through all the settings when I was playing with it and I can't remember it all.
