What is GBA4iOS ?

GBA4iOS [ext link] is a popular emulator, built purely for iOS by Riley Testut. It was built using an iOS exploit and that meant it could be downloaded from the iOS app store but, with iOS 8 Apple patched it and the emulator was forced out. Testut has done some extensive redevelopment on GBA4iOS and has produced an incredibly powerful emulator that uses quite a few of the iOS SDK tools to provide a seamless console experience.

With GBA4iOS you have a huge choice of GBA/GBC/GB games to play on your iPhone or iPad, joining the 10 million plus users who have already downloaded the emulator and are taking advantage of some of the coolest features, including:
