Okay, so listen up folks. I have used hundreds of emulators over the years, on PC and Android. As far as Gameboy Advanced Emulators go, this is HANDS DOWN the best. The free version has no ads. You can save on free version at any time. The layout is fantastic. It runs extremely smooth and the buttons have perfect sensitivity. You can import hacks for your games as well. Also my phone died mid play and pulled my game back up thinking I was losing hours of play to find it pulled it up where I was!

Almost too perfect. Buy the full version. The app basically does everything you could possibly want it to do: rewind, fast-forward, save-states, customized button size/layout, etc. But the only problem is; after spending, what was probably way too much time playing, (because the app is so good) I started to notice that the buttons were burning into my phone's screen! The free version doesn't allow you to change the opacity of the buttons, so either buy the full version, or take frequent breaks!

Overall the app works. It has been able to read all roms I give it and display them without problems. I give it 4 stars because the rewind feature only permits going back 10 seconds, which kinda sucks in heat-of-the-moment battles. It's also 4 stars because sometimes when switching between portrait and landscape mode, the hitboxes for the buttons dissappear, and the only way to fix it Is to close out of the app and relaunch it. Otherwise, a decent emulator
