For the past weeks, weâ€™ve seen quite a lot of old games getting ported to iOS or revamped into new, modernized versions. But if you want to play the real thing, what you need to have on your iPhone or iPad is a console emulator. Up until today, all the solutions that were available involved jailbreaking your iOS device, but now NDS4iOS emulator has been available to install through over-the air on non-jailbroken devices, as well. TouchArcade publication was the first to observe the news:
NDS4iOS now supports both non-jailbroken and jailbroken iPhone and iPad devices, and it also supports iOS 7 controllers and features options for control pad style and position. Another cool feature of the NDS4iOS emulator is that it lets you store game saves and load ROMs using Dropbox. To be able to make use of the app, you will need to have an iPhone or iPad running iOS 5.1.1 or later.
Also, if youâ€™re new to the concept of an emulator, then you need to know that it only acts as a tool, and doesnâ€™t contain the games themselves. You will need to purchase ROMs separately, or, if you have already bought them, you can just open them from inside the app.
