Problematic on newer iPhone
I’m having trouble with this on my iPhone, the keyboard is inadequate (missing F11/F12 keys), and it won’t go into landscape mode, so I can’t test that out. Still looking for a way to add my own programs without jailbreaking the phone. I’m thinking there may be a way to configure using an older phone and OS, then save the files to your computer, and update the new phone with saved version. Way too much trouble, but that is apple’s fault not the developer. Very functional on older iPad (aside from “settings” function not working and killing the app). Wish that I could get it to work better on my phone, but with it refusing to go into landscape mode, it’s not very useful to me on the phone (iPhone 7, iOS 12.1)
Looking forward to future updates, and hope the newer phone/os related bugs can be worked out.
Can't load games
This app looks like it used to be good, but not being able to load my own dos games into it with my ipad air 2, and no keyboard support for games makes it a no go. Luckily I only paid .99 for it so I am not too worried. I will keep it for now with the hope that it will be updated to work. Honestly I wish most games had keyboard support and customizable controls. Thanks for making this and look forward to the next update or two.
Don't buy it.
I really wanted to like this app. But I should have listened to the others' reviews. It just isn't it. Despite the fact that it is hard to import your files, the fact that the app store mentions landscape mode which doesn't work with the virtual controller displayed on top of the screen makes the app completely pointless. If you really wanted to play your childhood favorites on your iPhone, you'll have to wait some more.
Another weird thing is that I was charged $2.99 for this app when it should have been $0.99. It may not have to do anything with the developer but this really adds to my frustration.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
