We’ve all heard of Gameboy games consoles from Nintendo, many of us have probably played on one. While jailbreaking was done for many reasons, one of them was to download games emulators so that we could play some of our favorite console games on our iOS devices. Although jailbreaks are no longer freely available, we do still have ways of getting some of our emulators back and one of the most popular, freely available without a jailbreak, is called GBA4iOS [ext link].

What is GBA4iOS ?

GBA4iOS is one of the most popular emulators ever released. It was developed by Riley Testut for iOS devices and, until iOS 8, it could even be downloaded from the iOS app store. This is because Testut used an exploit when he built the app, but this was patched with iOS 8. Completely redeveloped, from the ground up, GBA4iOS integrates with many of the SDK tools for iOS so you get a great console experience on your iOS device.
