    So my Niece just turned 7 and I bought her a NDS L Pink and I was wondering which flashcart do you think has the best and ease of use GUI? I dont want her to be confused when trying to select or find a game to play..

    I think R4's, M3 Simply, DS TT Etc all share a similar menu and are very straight forward I'd recommend these

    why do people keep buying R4's O.O seriously worst card on the planet.

    if its for a DSL then just get either and Acekard2 or an EDGE card in my opinian these 2 cards are the best for compatability and also have the easiest menu's around (stay away from R4 cards they are more trouble than they're worth)

    Id say go with a r4 for its simplicity
    For all the R4 haters out there, it was the best cart in its time i bet in 2 years time everyone will think Acekards suck balls

    For ease of use (simple menus etc), choose the R4...
    For features choose the Acekard, M3, Cyclo etc.

    I don't hate R4, it's just simply that it's out of date, there are newer and better cards out there.
    I mean if you were getting one of the Newer ones, that makes since, butting getting an old card like that now? They don't even have an active team anymore, unless they got back together, but I don't keep track of R4 news.
    Personally I would say go with M3, it's simple and easy to use really. Well to be honest there might require some explaining to the features, so their not the easiest. I would say EDGE is the easiest card, but I only used that one once before.

    I am one of those R4 haters and I owned 1 like a year and half-2years ago and it was terrible even then I've found the EDGE card to be the best card for simplicity, its easy to set up and its easy to access your games e.c.t.

    Back then when there were still updates the R4 could run almost all games perfectly. Now that there aren't any updates and with the new AP measures, the R4 is obviously gonna look less appealing than other carts with features, updates and stuff. And the R4 isn't simple enough? You're joking right? And the R4 is easy to set up as well, just drag the moonsh and _system_ folder and your roms into the SD and you're done.

    I agree the R4 is a pretty good choice even today:
    Easy to setup
    100% Compatibility
    BUT...
    With all the clones out and lack of updates other carts like acekard or m3 are reccomended i still have an r4 and still use it a lot but still i prefer my acekard because a better gui and support

    I recommend an Easy Flash V plus. My 7 year old daughter has one and she can use it just fine. Has been using it since she was six to be exact. She has actually showed me a few things about the card.

    Ease of Use = EDGE

    My 5 year old uses a G6 Real. My 7 year old uses an Acekard2. Really, go cheap, she'll be able to use anything you get within 5 minutes of messing with it.

    Buy Acekard 2 or EDGE
    If you buy acekard 2 install akAIO
    Profit!

    Acekard is your best bet. It has a simple enough menu.
