The best performance out of any DS emulator on any platform, that's for sure. But it's showing its age elsewhere, with open source projects now considerably ahead in terms of features and user experience, including wifi multiplayer support and per-game configuration files, both of which I find sorely missing in this app. Still, the performance is unmatched, so it's still the best option, especially for lower end devices.

Doesn't work on newer phones. The virtual controller is designed for 16:9 screens, but the visuals for the virtual controller are always locked to the bottom of the screen, so whenever I try to press a button, it always thinks I'm either not pressing a button or that I'm pressing the wrong button. No matter how much I mess with the settings, it is always like this.

Recently, an update seemingly erased all data from the app; saves, shaders, layouts and all. Thankfully, by going into the general settings, choosing the "Scope Storage Folder" option under the system directory and selecting the entire DraStic folder, I was able to restore everything. I do feel like it's unforgivable to suddenly have things be this way, but I'm grateful nothing is completely lost. Beyond my gripes with this recent update, this still remains the best DS emulator performance wise.
