3.5 Rating: 3.5 - 62 votes

If you want to install and use the Amazon WorkSpaces app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Amazon WorkSpaces in the search bar and press Search. Click on Amazon WorkSpaces application icon. A window of Amazon WorkSpaces on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Saved credentials bugged, copy/paste doesn’t work

    Generally an ok client with good streaming, but not nearly as good as Jump and other RDP clients. Two biggest current annoyances are: Saved credentials just does not work, you can enable the option, and it even prompt to save credentials, but you go to another app and come back, it has disconnected you and just prompts for credentials all over. Hopefully a bug that can be fixed. Copy/paste doesn’t work. I can’t manage to copy any text into a workspaces session. Once I thought I managed to copy text out to the ipad. Again, just too buggy for production use. The relative/touchpad mouse mode scaling makes the mouse fly around at a uselessly fast speed. That mode should be for fine control, but the opposite is true. Again see Jump for how to do mouse control well. The connection status display just says ‘calculating’ forever, how long does it take to calculate a ping time? About 54ms I figure :-) The radial dial has not option to disconnect _and_ hibernate/stop the instance.

    App display is not using full screen size on iPad Pro 11” Disappointing to have the bigger screen but give up an inch and a half because app is not optimized...
  • So Close!

    With just a couple of extra features, this app could be perfect! Please include split-screen and support for the x1 mouse. Thank you!
  • So much potential

    I downloaded this app and setup my amazon workspace for use when I’m not at home so I could take advantage of my development resource. The potential of this to be a powerful app is there, but there is only one drawback: the keyboard. With workspaces and the onscreen keyboard, screen doesn’t have the ability to scroll out of the way so you can see what you're inputting. If you have to type into a screen where the text is behind the keyboard, you can’t see what you’re typing. The app really needs a way to allow the screen to be dynamically scrollable when the keyboard is visible.
  • One key feature away from perfect

    While ios does not offer mouse support, it does allow apps to implement mouse support. For example, Citrix app allows the use of the Citrix X1 mouse. So streamed desktops to the Citrix app enjoy mouse support. The same is true of JumpDesktop and the a partner mouse offering. While the virtual mouse implemented here is good, it isn’t so easy to do things like launch powershell with administrative privs. Please investigate enabling this support.
  • Need some improvements to offset mouse mode

    3
    By Cataclyst
    With Microsoft RDP, you can double tap and then drag to simulate dragging. As it is, offset mouse mode seems to have zero support for dragging which makes it almost a none starter for me. Every time I have to drag, I find myself having to switch to direct mode, and even then direct mode is too chunky to accurately drag what I want.
  • Nice App

    Nice UI! Easy to use
  • Solid Showing

    Little inconsistencies stop this from being a 5 Star review. Bluetooth keyboard works seamlessly, as expected. Typical iOS pinch to zoom work as expected as well. Obviously there is no mouse support, perhaps Apple Pencil support is on the way? For some reason, when I have video overlay playing the Bluetooth audio cuts out when I switch to the WorkSpaces client, weird!
