I love this emulator. I've always had the free verison but finally upgraded. It's easy to load games, and everything runs smoothly. The only complaint I have is when playing with the on-screen controller, it is hard to diagonally move. I see now from other reviews I can easily use another controller via Bluetooth and I will try that to avoid this issue when playing games that require that type of movement, but I would love to see a custom button on screen for this also.

Love it, if they had a way to connect to other phones using the emulator to simulate a Link Cable, that would be incredible! Also, it would be neat to have an option to disable the top left save state button. It's a bad habit to develop when you want to play Fire Emblem the way it was intended 😅 (won't deny that it saves time tho). Other than that, money well spent.

It's a great app in landscape mode. When I play it portrait mode it clips my fov. It allows me to adjust the position of the screen but I can't change its size. It would be nice if I could adjust the size of the screen accordingly. *Edit: it would be nice if I could increase the game speed by .25 increments. After 1x speed it goes right to 2x.
