I've had this app for years, it was actually the 1st online purchase I ever made, back when I was a teen. Still going strong and I play Pokémon on it every once in a while. There's only one feature I would really care to add, which is a mute button or automatic muting when fast forward is on I toggle every often and it's a hellish sound when you have fast forward on.

The emulator constantly asks for permission to access email accounts. There is no reason for an emulator to access email accounts and it poses a huge cyber security threat. The worst part is that most people will not think before giving permission to what is likely spyware. If you are comfortable with exposing your personal information to what shouldn't have it. Then go ahead and buy the app. But if you actually care about your security, then avoid this app at all costs.

Great Emulator, Bad Permission Requests. This app has worked great for playing a variety of GBA ROMs, supports external controllers and remapping of the on screen interface. However, it repeatedly asks for access to my other Gmail accounts on my device every day, suggesting the permissions component is either outdated or broken. You can't turn these notifications off in the latest version of Android, and it makes the app look dodgey due to this flaw.
