Emulators?

Hi,

I know this isn't strictly 'games' but I saw no better place to put it.

Does anyone have a complete list of working emulators for android systems and whether they are paid or free?

From my experience, the best emulators on the Play Store are the .emu ones, all by the same developer (MD.emu, GBA.emu, etc.). They're paid apps.

Thanks for that, I'll keep an eye out for those.

I wonder why they are paid when all the PC emulators are free.. Odd, but I'm not complaining, I'll happily pay as long as they aren't really silly prices

The guy had to do a lot of work and create new emulators on a device a lot less powerful than a PC. Think it's fine he's trying to get some money back for his time. Plus they'll be cheap. Not like they're $20 each

Think people expect too many apps to be free nowadays. For a couple of dollars you'll have access to 1000s of retro games.well worth it

That's cool.

As long as they aren't like 20 each, I'll happily buy them, I guess I should have bought a bigger googleplay card. Haha
