Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.

App Reviews

  • Best app ever!

    By EnviroG
    I’m so grateful to Jah for the efforts to corral most of our literature into one convenient app. I haven’t needed to carry a book bag to a meeting in several years. One of the recent updates added the ability to create notes with the app in line with highlighted segments. This has been a blessing in closing an important loop in not needing to go outside the app when I studied for the meetings. My one little quibble is that since the update to support iPhone X the ‘more’ button has become unusable and at best slow when it does respond to taps. All the buttons along the bottom could stand to have some space added to keep them clear of the home-bar UI element to reduce and/or eliminate accidental presses. Another beautiful addition would also be if more colors could be added for highlighting and the ability to underline text. Much love to our brothers & sisters serving as part of the IT teams that help us all to be better equipped in our service to Jehovah!
  • Thank you for all your hard work brothers!

    By EA_gaming
    I love this app so much... It helps me in my everyday life and makes studying easier for me since I use my phone a lot. I love how easy it is to access everything from the menu at the bottom and I’m sure this took you all a while to make so I’m very thankful. I have this little issue but I’m not sure why and it’s that when I highlight the magazine or the book and the Bible or just other publications that you all kindly upload here the magnifying glass doesn’t show up.... I’ve had this issue for a bit now and don’t know how to fix it. The issue doesn’t affect me much but the magnifying glass makes it easier to highlight a certain text. Thank you brothers for all your hard work and I’m sure Jehovah is very happy with you all when he sees all the hard work you all have been doing and still continue to do! Thank you brothers and sisters and have a wonderful day 😊
  • Small Nice to Haves:

    By F.Rivera
    This is the most useful app we have ever had, Thank you Brothers so much for your hard work. I know its with Jehovahs help that this is possible. There are a few small nice to haves for the Windows version we use in the meetings: -Allow multiple song selection for download, this makes downloading all the songs for the meeting easier. When you attempt download too many at once, by clicking through the list, the app crashes. - Bug: In the windows version, if you pause the Audio and don’t close the mini-player at the bottom of the screen, when you attempt to play a song, the video doesn’t come up. You have to close the mini player and try again, or close the app and relaunch. -In the meetings section, please allow an option to enter the opening song for the public talk, instead of searching through media. -Add an option to upload our own images to display on the second monitors (I’m sure you’ve heard this one already, sorry for the repetition). **EDIT**-Adding one more request, can you please move the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen up when using an iPad Pro keyboard, it would make it really helpful to type and navigate from publication to publication. Again, thank you so much for your hard work brothers and sisters!! Again, thank you so much!!
  • Amazing!

    By Idkkkkkkk!!!
    This app is an excelent tool, it makes the study a lot easier. The developers have worked hard to end up with such a great app, in my last review I was asking about taking notes, now we got it, thanks brother for the hard work. I have no tablet, just an iPhone, I have a study that can’t see unles a very big display. I use hdmi cable with an adapter so he can read the publications on his tv, but I can’t use JW app because all it shows on the screen is the text of the year. So offline I have to use ibook or good reader. Is there a way that we can have an option to see not only videos but also read the Bible and other publications on a tv screen. I know brothers you work very hard to keep the app running, and you are helping millions of brothers with this app. you realy are making Jehovah’s heart happy. once again: thank you for the best app Ihave on my iphone.
  • Crashing 😕

    By Thakid19
    Hello, I am just writing to let you all know that there maybe something wrong with the app and the latest iOS update. Before the most recent updates on both ends the jw app was working pretty smoothly. But as of late I am not sure if a bug crept in. Between yesterday and today the app crashed on me twice. I thought maybe it was my phone but it is brand new. So I just wanted you all to be aware of this Incase others are experiencing the same problem. Thanks so much for all your hard work. Update: thank you for the latest update! This has helped so much. However, there is still a glitch of some sort. When playing the kingdom melodies or original songs after 2-3 songs the app crashes. Also the toggle bar at the bottom seems to be stuck for some reason. I thank you for all of your hard work once again brothers. 👍🏾
  • Not fully downloading

    By Nurse Kelley 2011
    Thank you for such an amazing app. We rely on it every day. In fact, we recently purchased a device with a large GB capacity to download all of the videos. The app is not downloading correctly on the two newer devices in our home since the last update. Only the items in the teaching toolboxes is downloading. None of the videos (except the ones in the toolbox), none of the meeting content. None of the publications are there (except the teaching toolbox items). Entire menus are missing. We have deleted and re-downloaded the app several times on multiple devices and it’s all the same. Only our older devices are working. For reference, the issues are with iPads with operating system 11 or higher. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We will be looking forward to the upcoming updates.
  • Wonderful App - One suggestion

    By KyleJenner
    Thank you so much for this wonderful blessing. One small suggestion would be to make it possible to have maybe some type of account or something to make it possible to have what you’ve studied on multiple devices. Sometimes when I’m at work I like to study on my phone; make notes, underline, etc. When I’m at home doing more in depth study i sometimes like to use my laptop to type notes and so forth. But at the meetings I like to use my tablet, so it would be wonderful to be able to link your devices in a way so when you study a publication or whatever it may be, to be able to have what you’ve studied to be on all of your devices, rather than have to reunderline everything from device to device. Once again thank you brothers for all of your hard work!
  • My favorite app!!

    By Sis Ly
    I absolutely love the JW Library app!! However, I too am having problems on my Apple devices when it comes to playing the videos. At first I thought it was a problem with my phone, but then noticed it was the same on all devices. I usually continually play original song videos shuffled and they are not advancing to next song. If they do by chance advance, the title bar still says title of first song. Always starts with the first song instead of random. The time bar is also zigzagging all over. Same is happening with other videos. I know it’s a minor glitch with the last big new update, which was AMAZING! Hoping it can be fixed soon so I can go back to watching and listening to my favorite videos. Thank you in advance, dear brothers, for all your hard work. Warm Christian love to all!!
  • iPhone X Full Support & Minor Freezing

    By Mr.Tyree
    The app is very well design and only seems to get better each update. Hope to see iPhone X screens fully supported so the entire screen is utilized. I run into screen freezes when I click on a scripture referred to in a publication 1 out of every three times. Going back to the publication and then clicking the scripture again will allow me to scroll to see the scripture in other translations. Also when writing a note on a smart phone and clicking back to the publication, you will be sent back to the beginning of the publication. Unless you make sure to select the note, then hit the back button. I think an improvement would be to click back to the publication and automatically go to where the note was added after creating the note.
  • Appreciative user

    By LizardLadyKat
    I wish to thank you so much for this app! I use it all the time, and appreciate how you keep improving it. I will be patient, as I know you are working very hard for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have created the most useful app ever!!! I do wish that we did not need the internet to be able to have the bible and magazines read to us. I find it very helpful to stay focused when I can listen as it plays. We have a sister in our congregation than is pretty much home bound with cancer, and can not afford the internet. When I go visit her, I use my wifi hot spot to update her tablet with new magazines, and videos. She would love to be able to listen to them as most days she does not feel up to sitting up to read. I hope you can help with this, I know it would benefit others as well.
