    I got an iPhone5s running 7.0.4. and tried downloading the App GBA4ios it downloaded but when I tried playing a rom it would not play. The rom was downloaded off - *snip*

    It did load but it just closed out of the App refusing to play. How can I get this App and rom game to play?

    You can't link to roms! This should also be in the iOS section, not the DS section!

    Here. Also a moderator is the only one who can move it. And remove the link to the ROM!

    First of all, sell or trade the iDevice to a fucktard hipster, and get a REAL Android device. These are best for emulation.

    Well I wouldn't buy a SNES to play Xbox games, so use your brain when purchasing something next time. Base your purchase on what the device is capable of, and what you want to do with it.

    There's a better GBA emulator for iOS: GBA.Emu

    I'm using it on my iPod Touch 3G w/ iOS 5 and it's working fine. I can play a lot of games with a good accuracy.

    But you'll probably have to jailbreak your device to get it, because you can find it only on Cydia Store.

    I don't know what exactly you're implying about the 5s's hardware-specs or performance because that comment seems to suggest you're misinformed.

    Even as an Android-only user, enthusiast, and lover I can't understand what you're trying to imply.

    The ios7 jailbreak is still very new, and a lot of cydia apps just will not run on an iPhone5. All you can do is try apps, if they work, they work if they don't, the author might update them, might not who knows.

    Use Retroarch. It runs GBA flawlessly and if you have a dev account you don´t need to jailbreak your device.

    I was able to install the roms I wanted perfectly and get the GBA emulator as well. Both are running fine on my non jail broken idevice.

    Maybe it just plain doesn't work. Try a different game.

    I'm implying that Apple devices are not a very good choice for emulators. The hardware may be up to snuff, but Apple are dicks with their AppStore guidelines, and don't allow emulators to be uploaded to the store. That's where Android shines. :3

    So instead of using the native app store on the device, you have to use Google to find what you're looking for.

    You're right, thats so much harder. No I understand that inappropriate "Snes emulates an xbox" burn that totally makes sense to say.
