How does that work ? This dev has other apps so i'm surprised if this is a 'hidden' emulator. Its also been out since Nov 2012 so again i'm surprised if this somehow works (hope it does)

Yeah i'm not convinced. Newbie, first post tells us about this, i might have believed it but if Apple finds out i'm sure they'll shut down all the devs apps. I may be wrong but if this was real it would be on a lot of other websites (Just as Awesome Baby Names was)

Plus 'if' you can open a SNES file by dropbox/ftp that means you need an internet connection all the time, not so good

Just picked it up a minute ago, since even if it doesn't do SNES emulation, I don't mind trying out a new Dropbox/FTP client.

Won't be able to try the emulator till a bit later today. Will report as soon as I can.

I thought this would be the best place to ask, but Im not sure, am I allowed to ask about roms as long as I don't mention any websites, download links, or anything like that?

Got Earthbound rocking on my iPhone .

Fantastic stuff. Downloaded and ready to rock this at the weekend. It's from the people that make Evernote which seems strange but I'll give it a go. Good find indeed!
