It loads GBA games perfectly with minimal ads if you haven't bought the premium version, which I can appreciate, although my one problem is how the system will stop me from opening other files on my phone (a Samsung A23 5G) that aren't affiliated with the app. It's not a permissions issue because even after changing the settings, opening and unzipping files was impossible, as John GBA would try opening the files itself anyway. If there's some way of getting this fixed, I think that would be nice

It's a good emulator, was hard to figure out how to get widescreen/landscape mode at first but got it eventually. My only issue is that moving buttons around when customizing settings is to touch sensitive. For some reason the A & B buttons pressed together function doesn't work on landscape or at least when set to very small. Portrait mode hurts my hand some & the screen is to small so I hope the issue is fixed. Ads are also annoying as they come up EVERY time I click the menu. I can deal with a few but t it's annoying to see every time I try to fix my button options. Despite this it's not enough to make me uninstall this. Besides my issue, it's perfect. I can finally play a good Harvest Moon game on the go again.

One of the best out there. Great haptic feedback, very little lag, speed up options up to 16x! There is literally nothing more an emulator needs. The ads aren't as bad as people say, mostly just small banner ads at the bottom and a skippable ad everytime you switch to another app. In all my time using this, it's only crashed twice, both times I was using over x4 speed (let's be honest, all emulators struggle with that). And the quick and auto save are extremely helpful. All in all a solid app.
