Excellent, shame about the touchscreen A really amazing speccy emulator app that's only let down by the frustrating fact that you can't feel where the keys are when playing games but such is the tablet versus keyboard state these days. Now if we could get a blue tooth set of 6789 & 0 speccy keys to work with the tablet, all would be well n good! :-) Thanks for an amazing step back to 1985 n beyond.
