A. Nox App . OR

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

  • Verification and hassle

    By Jake617495936257495
    I listed my business on Google and went to claim the listing but didn’t receive the postcard. The mailing address was correct. I ended up moving to Newport News, Va and welded on submarines for the US Navy, then returned home, close by my original apartment. I could not change the address of my listing so I created a new one. I tried to reach out through Google My Business app to Google to delete the original posting (so not to confuse any customers) as well as marking the original listing as a duplicate of the new listing, but the only outcome is that I get calls from fake Google reps from all over the country to try to get me to pay them over the phone to advertise on Google. They are scammers or Google reps are the worst.. haha I just want my original listing deleted so any confusion will be gone AND my listing to be found on google. Right now, it is very hard to find even though I direct search the actual title of the business. This leads me to wonder if anyone can actually find my business listing on Google. It’s just been an all-around headache. I wish it would have been a better experience so far. I hope to have the issue resolved so I can update this review in the future. Hope this helps someone.
  • Disappointed

    By Haha901
    Out of all of the apps by google, this is by far the worst. I motivate my clients, customers to leave reviews which is supporting the google reviews/ google business app. Right? Why not support me as a business owner? I have tried to correct two very simple mistakes related to my business and I finally gave up when I couldn’t get anyone on the phone and I received nonsense for email replies! Two very simple things-1-correcting my business LOCATION on the map so that my customers are not turned around on another side of the shopping center. 2- MY BUSINESS IS A “duplicate listing” and I don’t know if I have lost reviews because of this. If I only operate on word of mouth and my reviews are all on google, I would love to fix this issue. But it took so long that I stopped wasting my precious time!! I’m so dissatisfied and disappointed. Also, to send me a post card or an email with offers from google to list my business is never going to happen! If you can’t fix this, why would I want to support a marketing portion of your business? It is sad that it’s all about the marketing but I rather have you fix the free listings before you ask me for money. Oh and or have the marketing team have access to help business owners before trying to collect money from them.
  • The app is necessary! No butts about it!

    By MichaelSublime
    Yes the app itself is awesome if you’re a small or even large business owner with an online presence through Google My Business. You are able to do everything you can from the desktop while being on the go, you can upload pictures or change biz info and make posts which are very useful along with getting notifications if a customer leaves a review etc it’s all right there at your fingertips. If you’re looking to get verified and have problems with that it has nothing to do with this app itself as I have seen others give a negative rating because of this when it play absolutely no role in the process whatsoever. Some things I would like to see in the future are the ability to message customers with some type of instant messaging straight from our GMB listings and this app as most customers would rather contact through text or messaging. That would be sick!
  • BEWARE BUSINESS OWNERS-Google won’t remove inappropriate “customer” photos!

    By Mr. & Mrs. Orr Bailbonds
    I have contacted Google numerous times trying to get “customer” photos removed from my business page! I have reported the pictures and flagged them nearly 50 times over the last year! These pictures do not reflect my business and are extremely embarrassing to be listed on my business page. I run a Bailbonds company and pictures of someone’s trashy disgusting living room, a bedroom that is red and sexual in theme and someone’s toolbox in their garage DO NOT relate to my business at all! It just blows my mind that google has yet to remove these images after I have made numerous attempts online and over the phone to have them removed over the past year! As a verified business owner of my google listing I should have 1000% ability to delete ANY picture within seconds from my business listing but that is not an option! The only option is to “flag” these pictures and wait for someone at google to remove them! Google has failed my business! Google should be ashamed that they treat business owners like this! GOOGLE- Remove these pictures and I will consider giving a better rating and removing this review!
  • Very Helpful App

    By David613
    The Google My Business app has been very helpful in getting my business visible to the general public. Posting is easy, ads are easy to set up, and the insights are great. You get real time results on how your business is being received by the market and how your services are being sought after. I recommend this app for any start up or small business entrepreneur who is tired of spending the time and money on a third party google service provider promising to get you ranked high on google. Take the time to do it organically, the results are more consistent, less expensive, and your business will stick around longer because you value each customer more when you’ve taken the time to reach them yourself.
  • Basic Platform But Good Idea

    By MaryLizAlva
    I haven't been using this app for that long but it is a basic layout which is easy to use. I wish it came with the actual home page that includes all the pages you follow. In regards to google "customer reviews" I really wish google would erase all FAKE Reviews. I wish they would have a verification process because competitors have become very vicious against there community and want to get ahead by hiring fake accounts to leave bad reviews. It's not fair and not right for google to allow this behavior. Google has removed a couple bad reviews for us but we need a stricter platform PLEASE & Thank You. God Bless!
  • nice app but no seo tracking

    By pepietsu
    This app is great in helping you manage your business online presence. What will be helpful if this app could help with search engine optimization strategies. when i created a google my business page and verified my business, i thought that my business will be visible in local search and on the map, but that wasn’t the case. Google is not clear on how you can make your business rank higher in local search and this app does not help you achieve or measure your local search standing in any way. If this app offered an tracking mechanism for local search that would be great!
  • Google business customer service or lack thereof

    Google is unresponsive to businesses who demonstrate that the negative reviews posted are false and have no process for business owners to send info proving the review is filled with lies. Dishonesty is not a reason to take a review in the rest of life lying has become accepted as just differences in opinion. Business beware. So a competitor/customer can write a product you never sold to that customer was horrible as is your place of business and even if you can prove that customer’s review is completely fictional it will remain in place. So this is the truth and the whole truth. Google business is only in the business of taking your money without offering true service. Try engaging this technology company in an online chat about your account and all i will say is “good luck”.

  • Useful app, almost perfect

    This app is great for anyone who wants to monitor their Google business page, customer reviews, postings basically anything relating to what your customer sees when they search up your store. The biggest complaint I have with the app is that the icon continuously says I have 1 notification, however when I open the app it does not show where I’ve missed a notification. I’ve responded to every customer review, continuously update our posting, checked our store page and yet still no indication to wheee this missed notification is. It drives me crazy!
