Step By Step Guide To Install & Use SimiDic For PC
Using an Android App on Windows Computer is kind of tricky and you need to follow some extra steps. It is because the Windows computer (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows) can only run the EXE file as an application. Since Android apps (https://www.android.com) come with a .apk file that your computer can not run or execute. In this case, we will use some third party software like Bluestacks or Nox Player (software or app or games emulator) who can emulate your SimiDic app on PC and you are ready to start using this app from your computer.
It is worth mentioning that, SimiDic is a popular app and will run smoothly in your Windows 10/8/7 and even in XP or the vintage Windows Vista.
Just need to follow the steps mentioned below to make it work perfectly. Follow on…
Step 01: Install BlueStacks or Nox Player on your computer. If you haven’t yet downloaded and installed those, please go to this link https://www.bluestacks.com/ (for BlueStacks Official Download) or https://www.bignox.com/ (for Nox Player Official Download).
Step 02: Once BlueStacks is installed on your PC, open it from your Start menu or icon located at Desktop. It will take some time to initiate all the programs for the very first time.
Step 03: When BlueStacks is fully opened; just click on the “Google Play Store” icon which you will find on the home screen of BlueStacks.
Step 04: On the Play Store, find the “Search Box” at the top and type SimiDic and hit enter on your keyboard. Pick the first app and then click on “Install”. If you don’t find your app on Google Play Store, then use this link – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ketanolab.simidic and download the APK and once downloaded; drag that APK file on the home screen of BlueStacks and it will be installed automatically.
Step 05: After the app installation is complete; open SimiDic from the “installed apps” section of Bluestacks. Or, you will find your newly installed app on the home screen of BlueStacks.
Step 06: Awesome! You are done. Keep exploring the features of SimiDic and stay on top of everyone (as you are smarter than everyone out there because you know how to use it on your PC and you can leverage your time, knowledge, and skills properly from now on).
