Absolutely amazing app! I love working with vintage computers and this app allows me to bring some of that joy on the go with some of my favorite games. The amount of features and the customizability is insane to the point there's a learning curve but it's well worth it! If you run into the issue of no sound, game lock ups, or sound hardware initializing errors, try copying the sound config fields from the PC version of DOSBox into the app version and increasing some of the buffers a tad bit.

Just fantastic. I am able to play a large variety of classic DOS games on my old Kindle Fire 7 (2015). Interface is easy to use. The customization options make playing most games a snap. I'm just enthralled. Best version of DosBox on Android hands down, and it allowed me to turn and old device into my gaming console of choice. I found a couple of the widgets that I couldn't get to work, and a few more system graphics to represent widget actions would be welcome. But, that's nitpicking. What works here, works perfectly. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

Many thanks. Widgets works in various different scenarios, you can freely ask what you need on our website forum or send me email, I can explain. I will try add more system icons, but just now I hardly work on some features. Maybe you can check our icons designer.

The app is good for the most part, but there is an issue when switching from portrait to landscape mode. Using an 8bitdo SN30 and SN30 PRO, the dpad inputs work fine in Portrait view, but instantly stop working when flipping the phone to landscape view. This doesn't appear to be an issue with the controllers as other emulators don't have this issue.
