    I had this app for years and all of a sudden it started asking for permissions having to do with my email. Today my phone just started spamming random buttons, then it tried to download a TON of files by itself with the my boy email notification. It's too bad that it's like this now. All it is is malware. I would definitely stay away from this. They are most likely trying to steal information from your phone.

  2. Katie Cation-avatar

    Katie Cation


    1.8.0 DO NOT BUY! Was a 3 star, then they deleted my saves. I had to PAY to have extra saves (free version used to have these) and they just deleted my saves. They downgraded the app after they started charging money. This app used to play regular gameboy games, and they decided to downgrade this app so I can't play them now. I paid $5 only to learn it got rid of that feature. Get a free app, they're as good as this. Extra saves you get delete. Don't waste $ on this trash. Not good anymore!DO NOT BUY!

  3. Kahhhblam-avatar



    free Love the app, but I wish I had known that I could backup my games to my Google drive sooner! I had to get a new phone, and I tried to backup my save files to my Samsung cloud and my SD card, but I still lost them all. Use the sync to Google drive option in the settings!! (This option is also probably the reason that a lot of people are getting permission requests to their Google accounts.)

  4. Jacob Craft-avatar

    Jacob Craft


    my boy gba emulator free download The app is great. It runs everything I throw at it with no issues at all. However I have cloud sync turned off as I have had some corruption with other apps in the past and don't necessarily trust it. Even though sync is turned off multiple times a day I get a request to connect to the Drive of every account on my phone. If I have it turned off why am I still getting requests?

  5. Brian Weatherley-avatar

    Brian Weatherley


    my boy gba emulator v1.8.0 apk The emulation is solid. However it is regularly asking for access to other Google accounts on my phone. I have four accounts, but I bought this game on my personal account. I gave it access to that one, but every day it sends up requests to access the rest. If I said no, I mean no. I'm just going to disable notifications from this app.

    my boy gba emulator games Know what would make this 100x better? (not that it's not already a great app)... But casting to a device! I would love to play my games on the big screen even if they don't translate perfectly it would be easier on the eyes than playing on a screen marginally bigger than the original gameboy 😅 Devs, think this is possible? 5 stars are up for grabs! :)

  7. 「Ko-sempai」こ–先輩-avatar



    my boy gba emulator apkpure I love it. It's great for Fire Emblem, and Pokémon when I want to play that occasionally too. I love the customization and everything and the fact you can have both landscape and portrait setup within one option for quick switching, and on a new phone it is a super smooth experience. 10/10, I would recommend. I only wish there was an NES or SNES version by these guys. I have some super old Fire Emblem games I would want to play on it..

  8. Johnathan Ligeikis-avatar

    Johnathan Ligeikis


    my boy gba emulator pc Really great emulator! Little to no lag and customizable layouts really help with games like pokemon! Really wish there was a way to play with people who have the free version, and a way to reduce controller input lag, but it's a GBA emulator on my Phone, can't be perfect in every way.

  9. TheCarvus kid-avatar

    TheCarvus kid


    my boy gba emulator mod apk To be completely honest I love the app the only thing I don't like is the fact that certain ROMs cannot be opened because of the file the file specifically has to be a gba file in order for the emulator to run it but yet on a computer the ROM does not have to be a gba file makes absolutely no sense

  10. Craig Chapman-avatar

    Craig Chapman


    my boy gba emulator ios Best $5 I've ever spent on my phone. If you want to dive into all the classic GBA games, the interface is minimal and has all the options you would want for modding your experience

  11. Max-avatar



    The google account notification thing is obnoxious and I had to turn that off. Once I disabled that, it's a great app. The main thing I was looking for was the link cable feature, and it delivers.

  12. Scott Suddarth-avatar

    Scott Suddarth


    Should move the left and right trigger buttons back to their respective corners. Or leave an option available for this. Otherwise works well. Update is okay

  13. Mustafa Kamil ATA-avatar

    Mustafa Kamil ATA


    Warning, I strongly suspect that this app is a malware. I had to uninstall it after it repeatedly attempted to access my device's gmail account, which not only contained my emails, but my drive, Google keep notes, contacts and everything else. What does it have to do with all those private info, such as your bank accounts access information? Google should investigate such apps before allowing them to their app store. I don't know how many unsuspecting customers have been compromised.

  14. J-dayday-avatar



    I cant access the navigation menu. My app is bugged out or something. No support from dev? I made sure in the settings that it will show the navigation button. Also you cannot put cover art on your games list, and even adding a widget shortcut you still cant put cover art on that! Meanwhile according to the internet android should be able to. Looks like im never getting another update from android again cause they always break things that work.

  15. Justin Beck-avatar

    Justin Beck


    Like most people I tried free ones. This out ranks all of them. No cheats included FYI. The rest is basically the same. Like the free one but no ads. I don't think it is license verification so you can sign out with it. Maybe or not.

  16. Matthew Nesgoda-avatar

    Matthew Nesgoda


    App contains malware. After installation I began to experience bizarre and severe functional issues, primarily with my UI and keyboards. After a reboot I receive push notifications asking for permission to access my emails! There is no reason that my emulator needs to access personal information like that. Need to say, I deleted the app and everything is fine now. I'd rather this lower of I could. Do not buy this app! I'm filing this to Google Play as well. I can't believe I paid for this.

  17. Heed The Call-avatar

    Heed The Call


    Easily the best GBA emulator out there. Clean and simple layout, no ads, and i've never had a single issue with it in the 5+ years i've used it across multiple devices.

  18. Samantha Winters-avatar

    Samantha Winters


    100% worth it. If you can get the roms, will play your gba games. Dont even need to save (unless you change games, havent tested that) when you quit it. Itll just load up right where you left off, mid-fight or whatever

  19. Brandon K-avatar

    Brandon K


    Love it however it keeps asking for access to my email address. If i click deny it just asks again after a while. There's no way to stop it asking and it's extremely annoying. Would like a refund since this app has become nothing more than a nuisance.

  20. Ethan Milburn-avatar

    Ethan Milburn


    Never had any issues with emulation on this app. It's very simple to set up and runs well on all my devices. My go-to GBA emulator

  21. Jacob Jensen-avatar

    Jacob Jensen


    Fantastic. I've certainly gotten my money's worth going back and being able to play all the pokemon games from my childhood. Didn't really have any issues at all. Games play easily. Easy to download roms. Great app.

  22. Dr. Acula-avatar

    Dr. Acula


    The best GBA emulator you can find, hands down, and I've tried many others here, on google play. I can confidently say that this emulator offers an amazing value, worth more than the few dollars you'll spend to use it! Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time trying other ones, you'll just be disappointed.

  23. David Ruth-avatar

    David Ruth


    Exception Emulator! Please add speed adjustments for fast forward. I've searched the settings and cannot find a way to do so. Thank you!

  24. Dave Howard-avatar

    Dave Howard


    It works exactly as advertised. My only complaint is that the D-Pad's hitbox seems to be slightly to the right and up of the actual graphic for the D-Pad. It rarely causes any issues and doesnt impact the games I play, but this is certainly something that could be an easy fix. All in all, I love this app as well as My OldBoy! App. They're great for brief gaming. Totally worth the few bucks I threw at it.

  25. Blake Morrisford-avatar

    Blake Morrisford


    My Favourite GBA Emulator! I love using this one! Runs so well. Though the only thing I dislike and wish could be changed is the save file format is a picture. So every manual save slot will put out a new image in the phone's gallery app. But aside from that one thing, I'm pretty happy with this. I've tried to use another but I can't help but to keep returning to use this. It's so good to use.

  26. Anderson Kai-avatar

    Anderson Kai


    I really enjoyed playing the flashback games in this, and making it faster to play when you change it on the settings. I ran into a problem though; I repositioned the GBA emulator controls via the 'Display' settings, and now I am unable to press it, due to the settings button being so close to the 'up' button on the "analog" stick. Is there a way to fix this, without uninstalling and reinstalling?

  27. bassfreek-avatar



    This review is subject to change. I just bought this and I cant even access the roms i have on my Micro SD card and I do not have the internal storage space to keep my roms there. If they fix that, it would have more stars. To give more context the root folder upon opening does not allow me to change to SD card. Only goes to the /storage file.

  28. Haden Odom-avatar

    Haden Odom


    This is a perfectly serviceable emulator - It has speed-ups, savestates and other features you expect. The bad: it request access to your Google accounts, constantly. This is supposed to be so that saves can be stored in your Google Drive, but there are better ways to go about it than for the app to appear in the notification tray every single day requesting access to each of your Google accounts. I therefore reccommend you check out any of the other excellent GBA emulators out there.

  29. Cray Artaba-avatar

    Cray Artaba


    Probably one of the greatest Android apps ever. I've had this app over generations of phones. consistent and exactly what you're looking for if you're a gamer!

  30. C.J.-avatar



    It's failed to save my data several times now both through in-game save and the app. I lost quite a few hours of progress from a game I was enjoying but no longer want to play. Waste of $5

  31. Emily hasson-avatar

    Emily hasson


    Don't waste your money, hasn't been updated in two years. Devs don't care there customers spent their hard earned money on their app. There are tons of others on here and this one constantly begs you to sync with your Google account. Seems all but abandoned. If we got an update maybe I'll change the rating and recommend to other but for now. Shame on you developers.

  32. ANA PEREZ-avatar



    I have had this app for four years and it is the literal best thing ever . It has been starting to lag recently I don't know if that is my device or what but overall wonderful experience.

    Keeps crashing when reloading a game. Closed everything down properly and now the app keeps stopping when I try to load the same game. And to think I actually paid money for this.

  35. DingPot-avatar



    Please update this emulator, it's getting a bit outdated. I think Pizzaboy has the potential to dethrone this emulator by having more features. Pizzaboy only has 2 major flaws. If they get fixed, this emulator will be dethroned. I recommend making the sound quality better. I know getting gba sound right is hard. Have an option to turn off the pitch change when speeding up, adding skins, and have an easy way to transfer save files.

    Easy and convinient to use. Google Drive backup feature is AMAZING, much easier to save my progress onto another device.

    Jakob Henneike


    Works alright, but every time my phone turns on I get a notification saying MyBoy and MyOldBoy are both asking for access to my email accounts. Incredibly suspicious because that's not in the app's permissions page

  38. Austin-avatar



    I've always loved being able to play old GBA games on my phone. I would give 5 stars, but the last update was over 3 years ago. I don't think an app deserves a 5 star rating if it's been practically abandoned like this one has. I would like to see some of the bugs fixed that many are seeing in other reviews

    After Bubbles Escaped from Finding Nemo - The Continuing Adventures and I tried to press A Button on mini game, It doesn't do anything, Please fix this issue.

  40. KCLA3D-avatar



    Works really well. Very nicely designed and runs well. Well worth the price. I like the customizable UI. Would love an optional Mute button to allow for easily toggling between game audio and music. Also UI fade after an inactive amount of time would be cool, have seen it in other emulators.

  41. Cole Thompson-avatar

    Never have an issue and the option to customize your button layout relieves the struggles of playing on a phone.

    Great emulator everything is laid out well. Only complaint is the D pad is easy to press the wrong direction. However it's more of a lack of physical button problem than anything else. Love it keep up the great work

  43. That Guy-avatar

    That Guy


    The ONLY reason I don't give this a perfect 5 is because I keep having issues with the sound in Golden Sun. Criticals and unleashes attacks all sound normal, but regular attacks are very hard to hear. If that could be fixed (I tried a different emulator, it didn't have this issue), I would change my score to a 5.

  44. BushDid 9/11-avatar

    BushDid 9/11


    Very good emulator. Would rate a 5 if not for the fact playing togather with another person requires the paid version.

    Layla Brooke


    It's really fun playing on a gameboy on my phone but definitely not worth the money you could get the free version and spend that 5 dollars some where else that's why I'm giving it 4 stars but it really is a great game!

  46. Joseph Handley-avatar

    Joseph Handley


    A innovative app that brings back your childhood memories. Enjoy the likes of Mother, Fire Emblem, Yu-Gi-Oh and many others with this easy to use app. Make the games more exciting by connecting with friends for a quick run on MarioKart or a Pokémon battle.

    DELETE THIS APP NOW! I re-downloaded the app so i could play pokemon. While the gameplay is solid its the constant need for access to my accounts that concerns me. Until i downloaded this app i had NO fake adware on my phone but suddenly i do. The app asks for full access to my google account even after denying. Idk what happen to the app but DO NOT DOWNLOAD! Stay away from this app at all costs.

  48. Pallo Productions-avatar

    There's a bug that I've never seen until now, whenever I close the game it glitches and brings me back to one of my earliest points. I'll delete the autosave, play for a few hours, save and save state. When I relaunch the game it brings me back to the same point with no other save files. Extremely disappointing, all I want to do after a long day at work is play some Leaf Green, but because of this I cant make it past cerulean Please patch

    My go-to emulator for android. It had all the features you'd expect from an emulator, and has a perfectly playable free version. Perfect for playing gba games on the go.

    App works great but continually requests access to the Google accounts on my phone even after denying it access.

  52. Sergio-avatar



    I would love this software being opened as free as in freedom software to be able to modify it and convey such modifications to my friends. Nextcloud support, online gba multiplayer without wifi or servers at all, possibilities are endless. I hope MyBoy developers answer my mail asking them to free as in freedom the software.

    After having the program for a year, the program keeps crashing hard, won't load anything for more than 5 seconds. Overall, it's good til the crash happens. Tried reinstalling it but it's not working as intended.

    Android 10 compatibility issues, definitely. I was running android 9 and the sound and video were fine, but after updating to andrpid 10 the emulator started with stuttering in audio and then even video in some games, tried different roms and all, no solution.

    Love this emulator, simple UI, and runs smoothly. Just wondering though, does the "reset" button act identically to soft resetting? For instance when attempting to get a shiny starter in pokemon?

  57. Taylor K-avatar

    Only thing that would make it better is if the fast forward option had a variable speed control to it. Or at least a medium speed (in-between normal and fast)

  58. Grady H-avatar

    Does everything well from my experience with it. I mainly play turn based games since touch controls are tough with action games. Wish GBC games were playable like they would be with a real GBA handheld.

  59. Keith Leyson-avatar

    The functionality is the best but why does the app request to access my Google account? That's pretty suspicious!

    Constantly asks you to sync every google account on your device and never stops if there's one you haven't synced. Doesn't even work with any time files I've found from anywhere. Used to work but doesn't anymore

    Overall the best emulator out there. Still think the movement controls could be improved a bit but it's not gonna be the same as a tactile key so yeah. Definitely worth the money

    Can you emulate wireless adapter for this app in order to maximize emulation for pokemon happy to hear your feedback from this...just like vba-link.

    Easy to use and supports every gba rom, also you can modify the controls so for me is the best gba emulator.

    I bought this to only play pokémon, but i was disappointed as trading and multiplayer wont work. I have leaf green and my friend has fire red so u cannot connect to it. Both parties require the same game which makes no sense

    Excellent app. MyBoy has been around for quite some time, and it's nice to see it still here. The emulation is great, video and audio come through clear. I myself had no problems with crashes or lag, I am using a Samsung A8. The only thing holding it back from a 5-star, is the constant notification asking for access to our gmails. It apparently has something to do with backing up through Google Drive, but it still asks even if the option is disabled. All in all, great emulation app, recommended.

    The emulator works well enough. It isn't perfectly accurate, especially with sound but the only game this really breaks is Mother 3. My big gripe is that the automatic savestate on closing feature has one big bug: It won't work for a second running instance when linked locally. This means if you have two games linked and you close one, not only will it not save the state but even if you save in the actual game, the next time the emulator opens it it will automatically open the previous savestate and overwrite the .sav file. This has been game ruining for trading pokemon and caused me to lose more than one. My other gripe is that my phone was stolen and when I went to open the old savestates backed up on Google drive, they wouldn't load. Actual .sav files worked fine, but savestates caused the emulator to freeze so I lost a lot of progress I was relying on having backed up

    Scam product. It may work, but it constantly requests permission to access my personal information associated with every Google account signed into my phone. It does not need to know this information for ANY reason and it is completely scummy and shameful that a premium app that I spent money for is trying to fish information from me to sell to spamers. DO NOT USE THIS EMULATOR.

    Almost perfect! I love this emulator, as it runs better than the rest and has a really easy to use interface. Very easy to remap buttons for physical controllers as well, which is a must for me. Well worth throwing a few bucks at the creator for all their hard work. That being said, my one issue (and it's an incredibly small one) is that the sound when fast forwarding is EXTREMELY high pitched and grating. Havent found a way to fix that. Still, a phenomenal emulator. Highly recommend this one.

  75. RelytwithoutaB-avatar



    Had a good experience with it the entire time playing. Had a few games freeze and had to restart the game and my progress but idk if that's the app or the game I downloaded.

    Frustratingly close, but the save function just doesn't seem to be reliable. Even if I save in multiple slots, sometimes it will not register the saves. The emulation is great but that doesn't matter if I go to load my file and its not the most recent save. It doesnt happen everytime but when it does I lose hours of time. It's enough to not want to use this otherwise fine app.

    I've used this emulator for years now and I can say it's absolutely solid. $5 is a steal. This would be an easy 5 stars. However, please stop pestering me to sync my email. It's unnecessary when the "Sync to Google Drive" option is disabled in the settings. If I want to sync my saves, I'll do it myself. If the option is disabled, don't send me daily notifications to allow access. It's annoying and a bit suspicious. If this is fixed, then I will give this 5 stars. Until then, it gets two.

  78. Bryson McBride-avatar

    Bryson McBride


    It's a great emulator with all the basics, and plenty of useful features. If you play a game that requires you to connect to another system to enjoy the full experience (Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald for example), you can start another file with the same game or a different one, and link it with the one you're already using. It's a brilliant feature! It works wonderfully with my 8bitdo SN30 Pro, with the minor drawback of an annoying bug that makes the D-Pad unresponsive. It's a simple fix, tho.

    Emulator works great, I have no problems with the functions. GUI could get some improvements. Red flag for me is that after a week of using this app, it started to request access to all of my emails in the background. Luckily my phone detected this and I denied access but it feels fishy. Someone should investigate what is going on.

    Been better. Have been using this emulator for years. Possibly since the beginning. Recently the controls have been buggy. And soda can't get into the buttons. Looked for an update, saw the last update was 2017. Can we please get a bug update? First issue with this came around a week ago. Cleaned up my phone to make sure my phone wasn't bugging out, haven't had an issue with anything else. Love the emulator and have for years, getting annoying to use.

  84. John Hynes-avatar

    Every day, multiple times sometimes, a notification will come up requesting access to your Google account. This is an unnecessary permission that has no legitimate purpose. Makes you wonder why they want it so bad. It will push this notification for every account you have on your phone. I use four accounts so I get between four and twelve notifications every day. This is very frustrating. Overall this is a very good emulator, games run smooth, speedhacks are nice, and the save states work well.

  85. Ian Cooper-avatar

    Ian Cooper


    Does everything you could ask it to. Very functional and smooth, easy access to games from your childhood. Having the ability to save in game and also through the emulator can be a life saver too. Only ISSUE keeping it from 5 star review is how it constantly asks permission for email account(s). Small gripe though for a wonderful, solid app.

  86. Mangled_Spirit-avatar



    So far this emulator has been great! it works well and hasn't crashed on me once but I have had a few issues with the controls that are very annoying. 1) Sometimes the D Pad and A Button quit working if I'm holding my thumb over the D Pad or I'm trying to press A through dialog, 2) Sometimes the left D Pad button and the menu button switch functions randomly. I've searched through every setting this app has and I can't figure out what the problem is. I'm playing on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

  87. K W-avatar

    The emulator is good, but IT WILL ASK FOR PERMISSION TO ACCESS YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNTS CONSTANTLY, no matter how many times you deny it. Many people may not think twice before pressing allow. I can't think of any legitimate reason why an emulation app would need access to your email. It is VERY suspicious, potential phishing or identity theft. Just be careful, DO NOT allow this permission. One star until I hear an explanation from the developer about it and they fix it.

    I've used this emulator for awhile now, and love it. Recently though I've switched to a Sony Xperia X, and it keeps crashing on certain games. Mostly having problems with Pokemon Fire Red, and Emerald. Otherwise a very solid emulator in terms of speed, and ease of use. Worth the $5 spent, but would love to see the crashing issues fixed.

    Amazing app. Can't fault it. I mainly use it to play Pokemon though... People are commenting about the access to emails... This app saves your saves (enabled by default) to your Google drive, which can only be accessed by having permission to access emails. The devs are not allowed to view or send emails from these accounts as that is extremely illegal. Just thought I'd express that before more people complain about a feature which is outlined in the description.

    Keeps asking permission to access my emails, I uninstalled and re-downloaded so I'll see what happens, but until then, 1 star. I also see in other reviews that multiple people are getting the same notification multiple times as I did. This is unacceptable, especially with the fact that it's supposedly a "premium" app with a no-ad perk. It might as well have ads, or rather yet, this odd request is even worse!

  93. ThePieOfLife-avatar



    Honestly was upset that My Boy free was taken off the app store, but bit the bullet and bought this. For an emulator, its 100% worth the money, but I feel like it could have done more to justify the app store removal and $5 paywall. Still rating it 5 stars because I love being able to play all my favorite GBA games whenever I want on my phone.

  94. Robert Eischen-avatar

    Robert Eischen


    The emulator works well. One problem that could be fixed fairly easily is you can't connect different games remotely. This makes sense from a programmer's perspective. But it's unnecessary. If you did link two different games, it wouldn't do anything. And it also makes trades between different pokemon games annoying. You can connect 2 different games locally. Which means 2 roms, trade from say Ruby to sapphire locally, then connect to your friend remotely who also Carries Sapphire.

  95. Dajour Phil0soph3r-avatar

    Dajour Phil0soph3r


    Free Version didn't load ads properly, which prevented me from accessing my quick save. So I had to buy the app or either enjoy doing what I had done before OVER again. That's not good. For people who are slightly short on money or kids who cant afford to buy the paid version - that'd force them to get another emulator or start over from scratch. My advice: If ads are mandatory, - for those who use the free version - please make sure that they work, or that they don't inhibit save usage

  96. RaidenPSX-avatar



    A pretty much perfect emulator that even has controller support, however I'm giving it 4 stars because it keeps asking for access to my email. It's clearly not essential for the app to function, as I always deny it, but it still asks for access all the time. This seems very suspicious. I can't give it 5 stars for that reason.

  97. AluminumDude-avatar

  98. Caroline Richard-avatar

    Even if you deny the pernission to access your Google accounts and turn off the "Sync to Google Drive" setting, the app will still keep requesting the permission every single day through a notification, which is incredibly annoying. The emulator is perfect otherwise. I wanted to send a bug report instead of leaving a review but there's no option to do that in the app's menu... Might want to add that in so people can report issues and give you a chance to fix them before writing a review.

    Everything was going great. Ive used versions of this emulator for years. Im having a problem with a Bluetooth controller not working with roms it worked with before. So I bought this controller, it worked, then it just stopped registering with the app, especially in landscape orientation. Its not the controller, tested and confirmed. I have the paid version of this app so Im hoping the dev can fix this soon or tell me whats going on.

    Runs very well. No lag or frameskips. Using Moto G4. Update: Constantly asks for permission to access your email. Intrusive and suspicious. Don't use this. This app is trying to take your information. This might be malicious code, and if you're wanting an update to fix this, Too bad! This app hasn't been updated in three years and counting. If they don't update this app within days to fix this, then I'm officially going to classify this as abandonware. Goodbye. Never again until it's fixed!

    It asked me for permission to all of my Google accounts when I re-started my phone. I am disabling all notifications from this app so hopefully it will stop doing that. It already has access to the files on my phone so it can access my ROMs. The gameplay has been good so far with no problems. Also, I like that on my BlackBerry KeyOne, I can use the keys on my phone as controller buttons on this emulator.

    I used to love this app. So I didnt mind paying for it this time around. However getting spammed by it asking for access to my email is not okay. When I had this app before that never happened. You dont need access to my email ever. Uninstalled because of this. Dont pay for this app unless you are ready for it to constantly bug you for that access.

    Don't get me wrong, great app! Needs some tweaking especially for the money spent. A and B buttons are too far apart making games with simultaneous press moves unusable.. Overall control customization for individual buttons on screen is needed and complete transparency option would be nice. FULL SCREEN for S10 and supporting devices is a must! I enjoy this application and appreciate all whom created it. Please continue support and updates.

    It's a an ok emulator. I have had constant issues with my button layout resetting after every update. On top of that the layout config is pretty terrible.

Even iOS emulators are better, even with their restrictions.

    Works excellent love it, email permission request only pops up like once a month or when I restart my phone doesn't bother me. Idk why people make such a big deal over it it requests it so infrequently it's not like you hit deny everytime you open the app. Also HUGE PLUS imo I have a Motorola and this emulator IS COMPATIBLE with the Moto game pad. I absolutely love how I can map the buttons and everything on the gamepad so it's just like I'm playing on my old Gameboy advance SP

  110. Russell Currey-avatar

    Best emulator out there. I have a feature request though: an option to mute sound when fast forward is enabled. It's nice to have game sound but when it's sped up it's grating, so it'd be nice if there was a toggle for that. I usually just end up completely disabling sound. "Only play sound at 1x gameplay speed" or "Mute sound while fast-forward is active" etc

    So far it's been my favorite GBA emulator on phone due to how simple it looks and to use. Tried several others, always find them either have messy menu or UI. That said, unfortunately the app hasn't been updated for quite a time, while other popular emulators still get constant update. Also the permission to access Gmail is shady, just like others mentioned. Though it only asked me one time in beginning, and after being rejected, it never appears again so far.

  113. GreenWolf2K-avatar



    This is a great emulator. I haven't had a single crash or just really any type of game breaking glitch. The only glitch I have come across is if you switch from normal speed to fast forward speed when it's on 4x the audio will disappear, but it will come back if you switch it again. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    App works exactly as described. not sure what the current top positive review or what the top critical review is even talking about as of 5/9/19. The app never crashes for me and it certainly isn't trying to "exploit people for money" regarding email access. If you're experiencing any types of crashes, uninstall and reinstall the app or ensure your phone can handle it. If it's asking for access to your Gmail, then you likely enabled the Google Drive option for save backup.

    I love this application , It really does perform the best of the emulators i've tried. I'm not being paid to say this , so i will give a small critique... 1- This app needs to have built in color pallette options. 2- This app would do well to include the previous Gameboy iterations. 3- The display of Games could use a "hide Games from selection screen" tab .

    Alleyway doesn't work. Paddle sticks to the left hand side. Without a minimal emulation of a disconnected serial cable, Alleyway will boot to the first level and the paddle will stick to the left side of the screen. Note that in order to play all games correctly you must fully implement a disconnected serial cable, with timing etc., but to only fix Alleyway you only need the define valid constant read values for the two serial registers.

    The best gameboy advance emulator for android I have found. It can play gba, gbc, and GB roms easily. It has features like save states and fast forward. You can customize the controls and the layout, and the emulator has no noticable lag. It can also load 2 copies of the game at once connected via a link cable. So you can have 2 save states of pokemon and trade pokemon between them all from the same device.

    This is without a doubt the best emulator, had been using a pirated version for almost six years and decided to buy it to help support the developer, one thing that would be great however is improving multiplayer as it's laggy and allowing a world wide net play feature as it will only work through Lan, maybe make a separate server app for all the emulators made or add it as a feature. Everything else I love !

    I'm very very very suspicious, and confused. As you see in other reviews, the app asks you for your Google account access. I made the sacrifice and accepted, and apparently it doesn't pop up in your security 3rd party section? So either it doesn't do anything or some very good stealthy malicious code. Either way, use at your own risk. (Edit #2:) Uninstalled after accepting and reinstalled. Pops up again. This confirms app is safe to use. Accepting literally does nothing. Probably a bug.

    Great app overall. Only problem is it doesn't always follow the device's volume setting. If I'm in the app and adjust the media volume level the app won't change it's volume. I have to hit the home button and open the app back from the recent apps button for it to change the volume. The easiest way to change volume is to hit the home button, change the volume, and then open the app again. It only does it on this device. I've never had it happen on any other device I've owned.

    Well, it's an emulator. Does its job exactly how you would expect it to. Has the same features as the lite version except better.

    I bought this software beware the free one does have a bug. Sometimes the games you save get erased. This software does not do such. I don't have issues with this software even with lower end devices. My games save and so far none gets erased. I test these emulators to confirm close accuracy and satisfying game play. I separated gameplay to be stern on its importance. I'm a 90's baby. Grew up as gamer tournament player and winner. I still prefer consoles over Androids and PC. Overall Excellent.

    I didn't use this app for very long, nothing is really bad about it except that it made me search through my files every single time I wanted to continue playing a game. plus from what I can tell there's a free gba app that does more and doesn't ask for your email permissions for some weird reason. it can be 100% safe but the fact that it tried at all feels sketchy.

    Honestly I've had this app since 7th grade like 7 or 8 years ago. We got it in 7th grade to play pokemon against eachother in class, the premium version had multiplayer. Though every now and again I will come back to use this for other classic games. *recently I connected a bluetooth controller to my phone and it has made this app the best one on the market.* Touch screen controls are limiting. However now that I have a full controller I can play any game I want. No more turn based games yay

If the happen to you please respond.

    This app is great if you wanna play emulators on your phone. On the other hand, it constantly asks for permissions to emailing services it very obviously does not require. Whatever abhorrent reason the developer has for not patching out that behavior is beyond me, but this app deserves a garbage rating until it's fixed and I greatly encourage everyone else who purchases this app to leave a bad review and only redact it under the conditions that it has been updated with these concerns in mind.

    it's a great app for playing old GBA games. However, this app is in desperate need of a ui refresh for newer android versions and should be better optimised for phones with a bigger aspect ratio.

    Even though it's harder to use it then an actual GBA.It's pretty good.I had to spend some odd 54$ on Django the sun is in your hand.I could've saved up to 49$ downloading the ROM rather than buying the real game.However if you use to many cheats at one time,then your game will probably start to mess up.Especially if you use cheats that allows you to do something before you can actually do it,say like walking past doors that can't be passed without certain characters or keys(I'm guilty of that).

    SO much better than the free GBA emulators with the annoying ads, no irritating vibration when you press buttons. Only thing is that if you don't know how to find downloaded games on your phone, you will have a hard time using this. They should give instructions on that after the initial download.

    Most of the time, an emulator excels by not being noticed. That the game runs as it would were it not emulated. To my surprise, this emulator also gives you the power to improve the game in some ways! I will save the fan-boy gushing about playing my favourite gba games again and just say "worth every penny."

    Sometimes the d-pad feels a bit clunky regardless of how I set it up, but that's to be expected from a phone emulator. I also wish it had e-reader support for Pokemon games, but you can get around that with the cheat codes function. Overall, works great

    The only complaint I have is that the RESET button is too close to the CLOSE button when you close the game. There's a high risk of losing all progress in your game if you miss the button entirely. It's happened to me before when the app was free. Thought they would have changed that problem by now...

    Awesome GBA emulator! I use it with an Xbox One controller and it works great. Save states make it easy to save your progress at any time and the menu is easily accessible from the controller. The video shaders are a cool addition and make the graphics look really nice. Highly recommend.

    People who are saying that this app is trying to steal your personal information are lying, I've used this app for over a year and it's stole nothing. This emulator is great in almost every way. I'm certain that the reasoning to why the app keeps asking for your gmail is because of some kind of bug. Also I'm 100% sure this app carries no viruses either.

    Been using My Boy! for over 5 years now, it is by far the best GBA emulator for android. I've completed many games including, Pokemon (link trading works, you can even trade on the same device across 2 instances), Metroid, Golden Sun amd many others. The only thing that I do not fancy about My Boy! is the save formats, which can be very finicky to get working on other emulators such as VisualBoyAdvance and most RetroArch cores. But a google should fix that for ya.

    Bought it many years ago when it was a dollar because the free version only let you enter two line cheats. It's been great throughout the years, and barely takes up any space. Just recently reinstalled it on my new phone and thought it's about time I gave the developers credit.

    I've been using My Boy! for years and I absolutely love it. I've never had any issues, all my games play properly, and I love that I can use cheats or hard save whenever. I have only used multiplayer maybe twice, but it worked perfect for me.
