The smoothest GBA emulator on the play store! I have used this emulator for months now and I have never experienced any lag, even if I use 2x speed mode (which is a great feature)! Along with that, it automatically finds your game, no file sifting required! And it saves your game, no matter where you are in game. Along with that, the options are easily accessible, and changing the layout to suit your needs is simple and easy. The ads aren't even annoying, either! Amazing app!

Easily the best GBA emulator available on Android. Includes lots of features, such as Fast-Forward, Multiplayer and Cheat Code support. Ads don't intrude on gameplay and Airplane mode can be enabled. A feature I personally would have loved to see is the ability to path ROMs natively, but it's not too big of an issue.

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.
