Google Play Reviews

  1. Katie Cation-avatar

    They downgraded the app after they started charging money. This app has been free for years, so I had the old version. This app used to play regular gameboy games, and they decided to downgrade this app for some reason so I can't play them like I've been able to for years. When it was free I could do that. Now that I paid $5 it got rid of that feature. I can't give an app that made itself worse after charging money 5 stars. It used to be better, and free.

  2. Alex Goto-avatar

    my boy gba emulator apk 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...

  3. Hipsterr Foxx-avatar

    my boy gba emulator free I love being able to play all the classic gameboy games i grew up on, along side all the ones I've ever wanted to try and even never heard of. The nostalgic experience is so exciting! *Note for those unaware: this app is essentially the platform for the ganes. You still hafta install the roms to okay the actual games. Considering the games are retro GB games, very little storage space is consumed by these*

  4. Axeman859-avatar

    my boy gba emulator 1.8.0 apk 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. If you got money for the app and want it, go for it, if you are just looking for something casual, get the lite version. Tldr; great app would reccomend if you want to upgrade from the lite version.

  5. Iso-Tope-avatar

    my boy gba emulator ios I wouldn't say it's worth 5$. It occasionally freezes and the only way to unfreeze it is to restart my phone. Plus unlike other emulators Iv had this doesn't auto save when that happens so I lost all my progress. I also think the controls should b more customizable as I prefer stick controls than arrow pads. Galaxy s10+

  6. Jason Kinsey-avatar

    my boy gba emulator pokemon The app works but every time I install it I get attempted account hacks with anything connected to my phone. And just to clarify hack I mean attempts to reset passwords on various accounts I did not request. This one time somebody tried to open up an Amazon account with one of my emails that I don't use.

    my boy gba emulator android Though a bit sad with the stop of development of this app, I can't complain since this had already served its purpose,,It already payed back the money i used to buy this awesome app....and take note up until now its still working on my phone,kudos to the dev👍👌 never had a single issue ever since I started using this..I'm just dissapointed since this could be still on the top of the store like ppsspp does which I think made its mark as the number 1 of its kind...

  8. Charles Chan-avatar

    my boy gba emulator full version apk Works great. Controls work fine. Also has autopatch functionality for RomHacks. Doing Pokemon Gaia right now. Also is easy to enter codes and cheats. Wish the toggle turbo mode was explained better I guess. Regarding app always asking for permissions, it only does it once each time I restart the phone. Just hide the notification.

  9. TheCorvus-avatar

    my boy gba emulator premium apk It's alright for an emulator. There are input bugs and there can be some major input lag depending on the game. Also, my phone constantly blocks it from permissions it doesn't need. Like accessing my email and contacts. Super sketchy

    my boy gba emulator roms I tried the synch feature to try and move my save files to my new phone and it didn't work. I have lost every single save file I had. This actually pisses me off cause I got so far in many games, like Final fantasy and pokemon, incredibly long games that I absolutely refuse to restart. So please explain to me how I can fix this.

  11. xPandazilla-avatar

    This app never used to have ads, and now it's giving me 18+ ads popping up every 10 minutes, and it's already almost enough for me to uninstall it again.

  12. So Blind-avatar

    Never updates. I paid for the no ad version and had high hopes for this. Have tried multiple Bluetooth controllers ranging from $20 to $60 and there is always lag with this app that I don't have on other apps like Steam Beta. Crashes about every hour. Make sure to save every 15 minutes.i can't make a full flight without this app crashing.

  13. Scott Suddarth-avatar

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

    I dont know why people keep saying it crashes on them because it never crashes on me. I have a samsung s6. sometimes it just depends what device you have, also it depends on the game file, not the app.

  15. Eevee In a box-avatar

    It works pretty well, I used to play it on my brother's phone which is really old and it's how I got into Pokemon. Thanks for the best emulator ever! -Me

  16. Reda Brika-avatar

    I pretty much rendered all of my developer option on my phone to be nullified to external sources but I cannot get a single game to load on this emulator. I'm running a OnePlus6T I expect other oneplus owners will have the same issue. Better off if you get another emulator.

  17. Clark Kent-avatar

    Love this app!!! Able to take a trip down memory lane. Play classic gba games. User friendly. Have had no issues! A+. I very rarely give a 5 star rating.

  18. mark parton-avatar

    Hi I love the emulator but the speed on the buy now is way to fast and I cant purchase the free one now that I've bought it. would be nice if you could either get both or even edit the speed instead of it just being normal or super fast

    It's the best emulator on the market, but I'm peeved that they removed the free version and that apparently the feature to play gameboy games was removed.

  20. Pixel-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.

    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. Also the problem with google account access request like others have said. For a paid emulator this is not worth it. There is better ones out there. Even iOS emulators are better, even with their restrictions.

  22. David Wright-avatar

    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.

  23. FSC 89-avatar

    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

  24. Buttered Toast-avatar

    You all should really remove using a bluetooth controller as a feature until it actually works. The delay of inputs makes using one redundant. Besides that, solid emu but still to expensive.

  25. George Helms-avatar

    I do wish it had a more graphical interface so I could scrape box art, but there's really nothing negative I could say about this emulator.

  26. JMW10o0o-avatar

    Great app I'm able to play pokemon red, emerald, red rescue team. Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Duel Academy. And others. You can have multiple save states, cheats, and local links (which means you can trade with your self in pokemon). I am not a robot. Beep bop beep.

  27. Dustin roberts-avatar

    It isn't worth the money. The only difference in this and the free one is that on the free one the fast forward setting isn't so fast that you can't do anything.

  28. Uber 5768-avatar

    I don't review things often but this app is worth bragging about. Not only does it work flawlessly with 100s of hours of gameplay so far, but also its features are splendid. Being able to simulate multiple gba games at one time to trade from one pokemon version to the other is big brained. Thanks a ton to the developer!

  29. Robert O'Shea-avatar

    Currently having problems with the virtual keypad's dpad, it registers being pressed with a vibrate but nothing happens until you get to entering a name and then it seems the down key is held down as the cursor moves down constantly. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android Pie. Will drop a 5 star when fixed as I have used the app on other devices in the past

  30. Regan Russell-avatar

    Downloaded, loaded a zip, and was able to set up WiFi multiplayer with a friend instantly. Everything just worked perfect, thank you!

  31. Chad Kohl-avatar

    Everything you could want in a game boy advance emulator. aside from the ability to play games from the original game boy and game boy color.

    EDIT: For those of you concerned about the constant access requests to your Gmail accounts. That access is probably required for uploading your saves to your Google Drive. lol Since Drive is linked to Gmail. Best GBA emulator available! Smooth and reliable with good gamepad customization. Multiple savestates and the quicksave/load options are useful.

  33. Peter Arias-avatar

    Works like a breeze and runs all the games I've tried well. The fast forward feature is also VERY helpful to get through unskipable dialogue. Great app, my only concerns are how uncomfortable pressing L and R on some games are but thats nothing wrong with the app itself just a touch screen limitation.

  34. Michael Stagis-avatar

    I've had MyBoy for YEARS. First the free version, then ended up spending the 5. The whole thing is great. I play modded pokemon's, fire emblems, castlevanias.. fast forward while playing pokemon makes the game so much better. I think this is a great emulator. Best one I've ever tried.

  35. Karlynn 77-avatar

    This worked wonderfully... right up until a few months ago when it starred DEMANDING access to my Google account. I deny it access, but it will repeatedly ask for it dozens of times a day from the background. I haven't even RUN this app in years. 1 star for starting to act like malware.

  36. K.C-avatar

    Just buy it. I've tried a few other GBA emulators, and none work as flawless as this (and the GBC emulator) from this developer.

  37. Nunion-avatar

    Terrible app. First, they forced me to upgrade if I wanted to use any sort of cheats. Second, none of the cheats work because of their stupid interface. Third, the app is constantly trying to gain access to my email accounts connected to my phone. This app is definitely run by people that wish to exploit people for money. Do not buy. Edit: It has been almost a year. They have not responded. They do not care. The app is still trying to gain access to my email accounts. Why? Respond you cowards.

  38. Benzii-avatar

    Works how it should. Switched to an iPhone for a few months and missed this app so much I went out and got a new galaxy lol. Great app if you know where to find roms. 10/10 recommend.

  39. andrew griffis-avatar

    Great app but crashes a lot, have bought the paid version and it will work for a while and then crash randomly, please fix or update

  40. カルビン-avatar

    Its already good as it is but it would be great to have a feature to have multiple save instances from the games

  41. Sibi Beckedahl-avatar

    Runs ROMs just fine, can lag a bit now and then, but I'm not sure if that's the app or the ROMs.

    Best purchase ever! This app is well worth the price. I've been able to play some of my old favorites with some great added features. I've also spent more time pooping since I bought this app. It's a great way to get lost on the toilet for some peace and quiet when you have two kids. 10/10

  43. T3CHN0 P03T-avatar

    Good, never crashes, hate that you cant find the free version again, atleast as far as i could search, but man it works great even the paid version is good since it gas extra features such as saving games to come back later too.

  44. Supa Starman-avatar

    It's okay, except for the random screen flickering glitch it loves to do a lot on the menus.

  45. SymbiX161-avatar

    Easy to use, amazing games. Keeps busy when Eskom shuts down the power here in South-Africa. 10/10 Would Highly recommend.

  46. Polar-avatar

    It's Really Good, The Cost Is Not An Issue As The Game Can Be Played Anywhere, If You Have Trouble Finding ROMs, Check The Subreddit

  47. Rea Kirk-avatar

    It's a great emulator, but it is missing a single feature for it to be truly "full feature": E-Reader emulation.

  48. Joshua Kenny-avatar

    For what purpose, could you possibly need access to my emails? I purchase this app and it asks multiple times a day. I've read your conditions and they do not adequately explain this in the least.

  49. Lucas Sherfey-avatar

    Doesn't work at all with gamepads that I got to use on John GBA- save yourself the money and time troubleshooting and get another GBA emulator

  50. Sv2389si Vwj-avatar

    Link locate issue with pokemon games. It work fine for the first two weeks I had it all a sudden when I finish my pokemon game story while nephew was still working on finishing his game story. The game stoop working on trading and battling with the link locate.

  51. Robbie H.-avatar

    I've had this app for awhile it's good, now suddenly it is asking permission to access my email accounts though. Which is concerning

  52. Samantha Hays-avatar

    Love it. I bought it and it's got all the cool little things like fast forward and other things

  53. Blake Good-avatar

    Audio issues, otherwise great emulator. Please fix the audio issues. In Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland, they sound way off where most other GBA emulators don't have this issue at all.

  54. R H-avatar

    Used to work flawlessly, but now if i try to use any of the menu selections in game (like cheats or settings) the whole app crashes and closes. Hopefully this can be fixed seeing as its a paid app.

  55. Maria Andrade-avatar

    Won't Load at all! Purchased the paid version and it wont even start at all. I hope they fix it soon. It works on my other phone, just not on my new one with redownload.

  56. bob101nano 2-avatar

    Its great to relive old games, but about a year and a half of using the paid version, my in game saves stoped working. How do i get my save file's back?

  57. Matt Bowen-avatar

    Emulation for the graphics is great. Sound is constantly choppy without a viable fix. Wish the sound worked

  58. Steve Meszes-avatar

    Intrusive permission requests. Was not like this when I purchased app. Deleted and using pizza boy gba instead. Better Gui and options on that app.

  59. Jugendra Singh-avatar

    My bad what I though was a glitch was a moded Day and night cycle for the rom this app is great and the best it multiplayer have been looking for a portable emulator that enables multiplayer for years now. And finally found it.

  60. Feid Flake-avatar

    Great! Except when one game crashes, the entire app crashes, and makes me uninstall and reinstall the entire app again... other than that, fantastic app. I use it all the time!

    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

  63. D. Monic-avatar

    It works wonderful, thankful for the no advertisements, HOWEVER, like many others it constantly asks for access to my google account information, which makes us all very uncomfortable. Please dev's make this stop.

  64. Bry Sal-avatar

    my phone is connected to my wifi but when i want to connect through my boy which is the paid full version, it doesn't connect at all.. it just waits for incoming connection that never connect. if i pay for a app i expect it to fully work.. can this problem be resolved please.

  65. Anthony Truax-avatar

    It ran a few of my games just fine, however Breath of Fire 2 will show the opening screen, have you select a save file, let you name the main character, and adjust the initial options, but after that it freezes.

    Best emulator I've ever used end of story. Works like a dream totally worth your money. One payment and every gba game is available to you. Get a cheap dualshock phone mount and it's just so nice to use. Mother 3 fan translation is a must.

  67. Nick-avatar

    App used to be good years ago. Came back to it, now it is constantly asking to have full access to my email and online storage account. Super suspicious. Even if you deny it and force stop the app, it starts itself again somehow. Uninstalled.

  68. Lindsay Zan-avatar

    Not worth it. Doesn't function like a gba at all. One of the features of a gba was that you could play gameboy and gameboy color games on it. This app doesn't do it.

  69. Kieran Sprouse-avatar

    Brilliant emulator, runs all games very smoothly. The Google Drive integration is great for backing up saves too. I would love a nice game selection screen with cover art though.

  70. Cybo_Vampire-avatar

    I loved playing Pokemon Clover on this emulator. There are just so many features in the full version, that I don't even really know how to completely use it yet. Nevertheless, it was worth it.

    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.

  72. Matt Johnson-avatar

    I wish I could map keys to the right analog stick, but even the free version is a great emulator, pc or Android.

  73. Cris Ferrell-avatar

    Love the emulator! Been using for a couple of years now and no issues at all. Plays smooth and very easy to setup and use. 10 out of 10!

    the emulator is great but it asks for permission of my emails and it does not need them for anything!

  75. Ian Cooper-avatar

    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.

  76. Shadow_shinto-avatar

    It's a great emulator, only problem is that whenever a day passes from when I downloaded the emulator it just stops working, it was fine before, idk what happened

  77. Jonathan Baker-avatar

    Great app easy to learn easy to input all gba games and I especially love the controller compatibility.

    It's easy to use, and it doesn't mess up the save all the time, this is the best one I've used so far.

  79. Steven Smith-avatar

    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.

  80. Mark Skywalker-avatar

    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.

  81. Bryan Malone-avatar

    This used to be the go to GBA emulator for android. Now it's just malware. FORCES ADDS OVER EVERYTHING. Even when it's not "running". Do not download, unless you feel like factory resetting your phone.

  82. Eric Smith-avatar

    Best emulator I've ever used. Runs super smooth, great customization options, option to sync saves to Google drive to use across multiple devices, etc. Hopefully other console emulators can eventually live up to this standard.

  84. Marqus Gibbs-avatar

    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.

  85. Robert Eischen-avatar

    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.

    It is pretty good when it is working. Unfortunately every time I play it seems to glitch out on the screen flashes very quickly and I'm unable to do anything. It's not the game ROM which I thought it was in the beginning but I deleted and tried a completely different game and it did the same thing

  87. Bryson McBride-avatar

    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.

    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!

  89. Deukkwon Yoon-avatar

    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.

  90. andrew stewart-avatar

    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.

  91. 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.

  92. Doc Pepps-avatar

    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.

  93. math brass-avatar

    The free one is better once you pay you have to d3al whit Lots of truble loading /button "a" and "b" button are not aligned whit display

  94. Metit Four-avatar

    I use MyOldBoy! and bought the premium version to support the dev. I don't use MyBoy! often, but I play well enough...got some free Google Credit and decided to use it on this. I remember complaining about the price beforehand, $4.99 is outrageous for just increased game speed and loading a quicksave....But people have to eat too!

  95. 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

  96. Michael Murrin-avatar

    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.

  97. K S-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.

  98. John S-avatar

    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.

  99. Mathieu Dubois-avatar

    This is the best emulator on the market, in my opinion. Rarely ever an issue. Good controls. Works with remotes. Custom layout. Plenty of save options. Can use cheats if your into that or want to see all the different features of a game. Developers are fantastic. Need I say more?

  100. ً-avatar

    Too many bugs. The settings keep getting reset. No matter how hard I try, I cannot change the control layout and it is stuck at the default layout which is awful. This is a bug and super inconvenient.
