The best Definatly one of the best C64 emulators on android.. Once you buy game keyboard and spend some time setting up VICE configuration from the F12 menu you'll have a setup just as good as VICE on PC.. Scanlines and CRT emulation both work perfectly on my nexus 7 2013 once setup properly.

game keyboard not as good the game keyboard (the other app to accompany this) does not do diagonal directions (8 way) as well as its joystick bundled with anVice - however the joystick bundled with AnVice is ugly and not transparent enough.

Best C64 emu! Runs flawlessly on Samsung Galaxy S. Lots of features (e.g. disk swapping, multiple savestates, screen resize, button mapper, custom virtual keyboard support) and an easy to use GUI. Runs virtually every game, including everything that Frodo doesn't (e.g. Bard's Tale 3 & Dragon Wars). Developer reacts quickly to feature requests or bug complaints and even provides indivdual bug fixes via email. Very good! *Update*: On the Galaxy Note 2 it's still working great. As with all other locnet emus, the built-in joystick is a PITA, but you can either use GameKeyboard or GamePad instead.

Runs Well...But Has Issues I want to rate this a little higher because it runs faster than some of the other emulators, but it has some issues that I can't seem to resolve. When using a bluetooth keyboard, there doesn't seem to be a way to map the joystick fire button, which makes most games useless. I've tried every setting I can find and have even consulted the FAQ, but I just can't seem to make it work. If this issue gets resolved, I will definitely improve the rating. Also, the UI is a little clumsy. I was constantly fighting against it to get things done, and it doesn't seem to save any changes you make when you exit, so you have to reset things every time you load it up. So, I like what I see, and I hope it can be greatly improved...but for now, it's not ready for prime-time.
