Default GBA4iOS: GBA Emulator, No Jailbreak needed, but set date before Feb 2014

Not an official App Store game, but figured it'd be nice to have some discussion about it.


Grab GBA4iOS here.

It is simply awesome. I can't get drop box to work but you can upload games right through the built in browser.

Never mind, I got it to work. You have to scroll down and click "download"... derp..




I LOVE the haptic feedback you get when touching the controls (reminds me of my Galaxy S4) Very cool.

I don't understand how this is possible.

How is this app able to simply install through a browser? What about unsigned apps on a non-jailbroken device? I'd be wary of this. I'll stick to my GBA Micro. These emulators honesty suck on a touch display.

I wonder if they're taking advantage of some sort of exploit, or if they managed to find someone to sign the app. Either way, get it while you can, it's awesome

If Apple somehow removes this, would we still be able to download the ROMs through the app itself?

Absolutely, yes.

It appears they're being signed by someone. The app warns you that if it stops working, you'll need to set the date before Feb 19th before you launch it
