Gamesome Frontend

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!

No portrait??? Great app, love the recent improvements but why did you take portrait mode out of the app? Or is there some secret way to activate? This is fine on a tablet but difficult to use on my phone. If I remember correctly it used to rotate automatically but now it does not.

Good front-end with little problem I have it setup on my firetv looks nice and functions except I can't browse games from my controller. I have to use a mouse to pick a game. Other menus work with controller though just not game selection.
