It's true what some say about a learning curve. There were a few peculiarities, all will likely be ironed out in time. it plays flawlessly, the only permission it requires is the ability to access the files. That's really all I wanted. There are some features of other emulators I wish it had like different layout/appearance options for the control pad and being able to re-size the screen would be nice but honestly I can't complain. For what It is and the protection of my privacy 5 stars, EASY.

I had to dock a star. I have loved this emulator for years. Ever since the last update the cheats have not worked. I put the zip file in my downloads folder and in my ROMs folder. Still not getting the cheats option in the menu. When I use my original iNes it works and syncs up and everything. I have not updated the app on my other device and it works fine. Hope there is an update soon to fix the cheat glitch.

I only have Android 10 devices here (not Android 11) and the Downloads folder worked for me during testing. Will retest to see if I missed anything.

What happened to the $2.99 I paid?! Why'd the price go up?! Not cool guys. 4 stars cuz of that. Now for the real review..... The emulator is amazing. You get all your ROMs in one easy to access library-style place! Fully customizable control interface with cool skins, resizing and more! Screenshots for your most recent savestates! An in-depth GG/GS/AR cheat code library for all your favorite games! Video filters. Audio enhancements. Easy-to-navigate menus. Enjoy VGBAnext! :D

If you've paid for the emulator, you have it in your Google Play library, whatever the current price might be. If you have the proof of purchase (emailed receipt), but Google Play still offers you to purchase the app, the best course of action would be to contact Google Play support and complain about it.

What's new
