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!

Cool, but please support MegaN64 This App is pretty cool. I would really appreciate it if you could make this app support MegaN64 though since that is the main n64 emulator I use. If you made it support that I would give 5 stars. Actually if you could make it support ScummVM, that would be sweet too.

A great front-end Supports most popular emulators, grabs metadata reliably, and supports controller input for navigation. Prefect for the retro gaming fan who is tired of launching a different app for each system. I'm impressed with this iteration and interested in seeing what improvements the dev makes moving forward.

Great Frontend This app is exactly what I was looking for. Only problem is it is really hit and miss with Dreamcast games (seems to be with GDI files). I've got 6 games on my SD card, and it only recognizes 1. They show up fine in Reicast- wish there was a way to manually add them if they're not found. Still, worth the PRO upgrade to support further development.

I wish there was a recently opened or favorites folder. Also Shield gamepad support for navigation would be amazing. Otherwise this app does exactly what it says it does.
