Best of FTA - Apple II and IIGS emulator - runs all images

Sat back with iPhone Explorer tonight, copied over some dsk images and then editted the XML file and voila! Full working emulator.

Too bad I haven't found a way to enable the tab bar at the bottom nor the ability to switch dsk images in game (for Multi disk games).

The dev even included System 6 for the IIgs, add that to the XML and enjoy! Just hit enter past all the errors.

Anyone else explored this app?

Do I need to put the games in the Documents folder?
I tried tons of things and not getting anything to work.

Could you give us a small explanation on how and where to put things?

Thanks so much
