The problem I have with this emulator is that it does not look at external storage. I bought it for my smart TV which I use with all types of emulators. I just put the games in a USB drive connect the USB drive and I can navigate to the gain access. Not so with this emulator. It insists on staying within the file structure of the android and will not give you an option for accessing external storage. This is a pretty big flaw in my opinion. I do not want to have to copy the games to the TV memory.

Beautifully laid out and feature-rich, the actual emulation is great, and the integration with the Google Play Games service is a really nice touch. Unfortunately I was totally unable to get the cloud synchronization to work; and that was really the main reason I bought it - I wanted to be able to play on my tablet, come home, pick up a controller on my Android TV and pick up where I left off. But it just doesn't seem to work.

Not understanding why people are rating it low. The only problem I'm having with it is the Google play backup sync on every one of my devices. The same problem I had with SuperRetro16 a year ago. Which I would suspect they would have fixed by now in this. Still have other methods of obtaining though. Since it's a wee bit harder to obtain games on Android TV, I keep spamming the sync button until it works.
