Is there a tool to package a particular emulator/SD configuration + APK as a Mac OS X application so that it can be distributed and run with a simple double-click? Something like Fluid for web apps... applied to Android apps on Mac OS (or Windows).

What's the problem with emulator of Android SDK? – Evil Angel Jul 5 '12 at 4:33
Or virtualbox either and use the Android x86 project (which is what I imagine is how BlueStacks work) and install the apk on it, and distribute the virtualbox's image (size wise, I would think it would be about <512Mb so obviously would not be a good idea either!) – t0mm13b Jul 5 '12 at 13:43

BlueStacks for Mac is currently in "alpha" testing, and is probably your best option at this point, although I don't believe it provides any kind of simple per-app packaging.
