About this app

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A GAME!! If you don't know what emulators and front-ends are this app is not for you!


This is an emulator front-end that will painlessly organize your retro game collection.

Little to no set-up is necessary in many cases. Dig will automatically scan your device for games, download cover art, and assign emulators.

However, you must supply your own games and install the emulators yourself. Dig will take you to the Play Store pages of emulators that are not installed.

Other features include

* Support for 83 systems and counting
* Merged game sets
* Android homescreen game launching
* 6 game view types
* customizable themes with (optional) background pictures, videos, and music/sound effects
* voice search
* support for zipped CD images

and more!

I love Dig! I have used a couple of other frontends on my Shield TV and they are okay. Buggy somewhat but they still get the job done. I installed the main one I use on Android TV on my new phone and it performed badly. I couldn't scroll down to the bottom of the list before it would take me to the top. The settings button is located at the bottom so once I (assume) overloaded it with a few hundred roms I could never get back down to fix anything. I then tried another frontend that I had used in the past and it failed to even recognize any roms. Then I found Dig. First impressions were not all that good. I thought the icon was dumb looking, it didn't have a cool name and the screenshots looked kind of bad. I was so wrong. First of all, the icon is pretty great once you get to the main menu. It instantly brought a smile to my face when I opened the app. I don't know if Dig stand for anything but turns out it's a cooler name than the other frontends I've used. I was happy to find the customization options with the UI. The scrapper is legit too! I've got more to say but running out of space. Dig is dead simple to set up. Thank you Dig Games! Awesome work!

I have been using this one for months. This is a solid front end. It is not an emulator! You can change the themes to make things look and function somewhat differently. Adding things is not that difficult. Only complaint is that it doesn't pick up every Android game (does find most). Small price to have the rest of the collection organized. If you are having issues, go watch the ETA Prime video showing how to set it up.

Nice lightweight and functional front-end! A few of questions/suggestions... Is there a way to turn off the right/left page navigation so I can just click A and B to go forward and back (right/left often leads to accidental page flips). It would be nice to have custom backgrounds for individual systems. Lastly, the "grid" layout is misaligned once you scroll down. It starts out fine, but after scrolling down one step the bottom row is slightly off-screen and the top row shows a piece of the row above it. Nice work!
