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!

Fantastico!!! So che questa app e made in ita perciò scrivo in italiano! Detto ciò vi meritate 10 stelle per l'idea, a nessuno e venuto in mente di fare un bel front-end con tutta la comoditá che questo comporta. una sola cosa, che inmagino avrette gia in mente ed é la attualisazione de l'interfaccia utente con icone più "carine" per Ie rispettive console, solo questo!! Del resto Complimenti allo svillupatore, ho consigliato l'app ad un sacco dei miei amici qua a NY che come me amano il retrogaming, grazie!!!

Brilliant! Great to have a frontend on Android! It's great to see a frontend for emulators on Android. It's worked really well so far although the cover cache could do with some improvement as it seems to want to reload all the covers when scrolling which is really annoying as it would be nice to just have a decent cover flow instead of it reverting back to default and reloading whole scrolling through list. The A-Z on right side could also be increased slighly or have a sort of hovering selector like in contacts app. Scanning of PS1 games seems to crash app.

Awesome! But please support DOS games Great app.. nice and clean. Scrolling covers is a little jumpy though, nothing a good cache can't fix?
