Gamesome Frontend


This is NOT an emulator and games are not included!!!
Before badly rating this app, read the support wiki or contact me if you have any problem.

The Gamesome Frontend is the first emulation frontend for Android!
This app will keep your roms organized, all you have to do is put your roms in separate folders - one for each console - and Gamesome Frontend will do the magic for you! Gamesome will identify each game in your collection*, download its cover, title and some further information. Once the scan is complete, you can view your collection in two different ways: as a grid of boxarts or as a list, with a side panel containing game informations. You can even search a game through your collection by title.

What makes Gamesome great, is its capability to launch your games with your favorite emulator**! One unique and fancy interface will handle all your games!

Since version 1.05.1 the app is developed on a Nvidia Shield kindly offered by Nvidia USA itself, and future updates will enhance controller support!

Can't access memory card My Nvidia Shield has a 64GB micro SD in it, filled with ROMs. If i point Gamesome to it, it says it cannot access the folder. Help please!!

Cool, I liked it, but I'm a little disappointed that files with long directories and filenames won't get scanned. An option to have a fanart view would be great. Totally planning on getting pro if this happens.

This is great App collects all of my games in a simple beautiful grid automagically. Launches the preferred emulator with the rom running. Don't know what else could make this any better. Bought the pro license simply to support the dev.

Please add ZX Spectrum! Great application, but needs a way to add custom platforms.
