Overall the app is a good emulator, but like others are saying it will needlessly request access to every gmail account on your phone several times a day. There's no way to disable these notifications unless you give it access to everything (which it absolutely doesn't need). The fact it hasn't been updated since 2017 means the developer stopped caring a while ago. Recommend using another emulator instead.

This game boy is the best one in my experience! It allows you to place controls however you want on your screen, has a fast button you can add, many save slots, and it runs smoothly. It has an option to stretch so that I can utilize my entire screen. I had to remove 2 stars because for some reason it keeps asking for permissions for my Gmail accounts through a system notification and the free version didn't.

Almost perfect! I love this emulator, as it runs better than the rest and has a really easy to use interface. Very easy to remap buttons for physical controllers as well, which is a must for me. Well worth throwing a few bucks at the creator for all their hard work. That being said, my one issue (and it's an incredibly small one) is that the sound when fast forwarding is EXTREMELY high pitched and grating. Havent found a way to fix that. Still, a phenomenal emulator. Highly recommend this one.
