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!

Stunning! Galaxy note 3 This app has improved a lot as each month passes, in fact it is almost perfect apart from one thing now and that is box art duplication when save data in a game is used. For example if I play mario cart for the snes and save the game, it will create another box art in the game selection and it doesnt look as cool. But like i said this app is amazing and its getting better every update, so if you like the idea of having a front end for your emulators dont hessitate to buy the full version

Awesome! This looks awesome! Can you add support for aFBA? It plays the FBA Roms better than Retroarch. Thanks!
