412117_largerIn the history of the App Store, there have been more than a few of these iOS apps that seemingly do something innocuous that turn out to have secret functionality. Sneaking apps in that allowed for internet connection sharing was a big deal back before the iOS personal hotspot functionality was added in iOS 4.3. Since then, emulators have been all the rage, although most (all?) of them have been for the NES.

A SNES emulator is now available via the Remote File Manager [$0.99] app. On the surface, it's just a super basic file viewer that can connect to both Dropbox and FTP accounts and open some files. What the iTunes description doesn't tell you is that among those files are *.smc Super Nintendo ROM files.

Getting it all working couldn't be easier. All you've got to do is sign up for a free Dropbox account if you don't already have one, drop some *.smc files in there for whatever game you want to play, connect to it in Remote File Manager, and tap those ROMs to play them.

Forum members are reporting great success with what the emulator can run, but the virtual control setup is sort of wacky so this definitely is one of those things that falls more into the "Huh, that's neat" category. Actually running these games is Snes9x 1.53, which means it has full iCade support, which is pretty cool.

Anyway, these emulators rarely last very long on the App Store, so if you want this one, you better grab it quick.

    The world's favorite console now available on the world's best tab.
    The only reason I bought that crappy Nexus 7 was because of

        Current jailbreaking never bricks your iphone. You can always do a restore in itunes with your phone in DFU mode.

  • ImJPaul

    If they pull this can you still d/l the .smc files?! I've always wanted to d/l one of these but didn't want to just throw my money in the garbage if its only for a few hours.

  • Darkmain

    How secure is it?
    Is my Dropbox account safe with this?

    • Julio Marquez

      Good question, you could try not to upload anything really important or private. I will open an account specifically for this app so no important files go there, just ROMs.

      • Vlad

        Yes I completely agree. If the developer was sneaky enough to high the emulator in it, he could well have hidden something else more malicious there to.

      • Vlad

        Or perhaps I'm wrong and he's just a cool dude who wanted to deliver a nice product at a sweet price. But either way it's better to be safe than sorry, right?

  • jpjrdorion

    Can Anyone test NES emulation as well?
    Thanks.

    • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

      I just did.
      With SMB3 & Popeye.
      Doesn't work, unfortunately.

  • gosenbach

    Downloading now. Still up in the us store

  • szodike

    I have just tested it with Breath of fire 2. It seems to be perfect. Onscreen buttons are a bit small to my taste, but the emulation is flawless.

  • Matthew Rossman

    Not worth buying, you can get an SNES emulator from emu4ios without jailbreaking. Works great, you can also get a screen recorder.

    • Matthew Rossman

      For free, forgot to add that ;P

    • SerapisB

      :O

    • lepke

      Waaat? Have to check this out.

    • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

      I beg to differ.
      I took a chance & tried it.
      First of all, how do you get ROMs on it?
      Secondly, the first emu disappears after
      you download a second one.
      What kinda crap is that?!?
      FAIL.

      • Matthew Rossman

        You get ROMS directly through Safari, which is awesome. DL them on whatever site you please, then when you hit "Open In..." one of the options is SiOS.

        They talk about their reasoning for only one emulator at a time on the site's FAQ, if you could get multiple it somehow allows Apple to catch on and remove the service... I don't remember the details but check out the FAQ for more info. You're only getting one emulator from this file sharing app anyways, so your "FAIL" comment would have to apply to this app too

      • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

        I also thought if I obtained a ROM through a downloading app then tapped it,
        I'd see the OPEN IN .... icon.
        But while that works for RFM, it doesn't for SiOS.
        Can I get ROMs on SiOS via iTunes File Transfer?

        Yes, I should've read the SiOS FAQ that explains they'd hafta pay $300 to Apple for an
        Enterprise license in order to allow more than one emu4ios app to be installed at a time.
        My mistake for not seeing that.

    • Phoen1x1

      Checked into this and passed when I seen I had to complete and offer to download the emu app..

      • Matthew Rossman

        I experienced the same thing at first when Googling it however if you directly select the "Downloads" subpage of the site on Google you skip the survey crap.

      • Phoen1x1

        Then I would just download the snes version?

      • Phoen1x1

        I downloaded the snes program but when I open the app it just stays open for a millisecond and closes.

      • Matthew Rossman

        There are two SNES emulators available on the site. "SNES4iOS" crashed for me, so I recommend the other one, "SiOS". Also make sure you changed the date to 2012 and make sure to open the app once before switching the date back to 2013.

      • Phoen1x1

        Downloading SiOS now

      • Phoen1x1

        OK that worked fine, it opens to a screen that says games on the top of it. And I set my date back to the correct date. So now I just use Safari and go to any snes rom site and download roms and open with SiOS? Not bad, just wanted to check it out. I probably have purchased all my favorite SNES games about 4 times already over the years so I don't feel all that bad (and I continue to do so on the Wii U)

  • BZoetic

    Perfect emulation of Chrono Trigger. Works!

    • DannyTheElite

      That's on the store already.... This is why emu is not allowed on the App Store.

  • CooleTeeps

    Isn't this illegal?

    • http://ask.fm/MidianGTX MidianGTX

      It's long been a legal grey area, full of misconceptions, loopholes and excuses. You're not going to get in trouble for using it though.

    • AVtime

      No, it is completely legal to develop, use, and own emulators (like this one) in the US.

      It is also legal to use it with ROM files you have personally created from your own, physical copy of a game. However, it is definitely illegal to use a ROM file for a game you haven't purchased. And the grey area is whether you can use a ROM for a game which you own, but have not personally encoded. Consider a music analogy; you can digitally rip your own physical albums, but not download others' personally ripped tracks -- even if the information is exactly the same. (FU, Congress)

      In any case, the mp3 player you use to play either track is completely legal, and so is this emulator. Fear not!

      • Apposl

        Isn't pirating music legal in Canada?

  • AntMan

    I wish I knew how to get this to work. I downloaded that app, I have dropbox. But I don't have a computer, only my iPad so I don't know how to get ROMs into dropbox. I'm not even sure if that is what I'm supposed to do lol....any help?

    • daniel schroeder

      Without a computer, you're basically up the creek without a paddle. It's also probably not a good idea to ask for help with getting ROMs.

      • timmfox

        I was able to easily download roms and set everything up without a computer. Just set up a dropbox account and go to cool roms. Select a game and download it. It will ask if you want to open in dropbox and say yes. Then select where you want to put it in dropbox. Once in dropbox, open up the emulator and select the file in dropbox.

      • icepulse

        If you have the Dropbox app, it's very simple.

    • Vlad

      Use the drop box app or iFiles to copy the content onto Dropbox. But I would recommend making a separate Dropbox account for this app, because by virtue of the fact that this game has a hidden emulator, there is a serious potential for it containing hidden malware too.

  • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

    Ta-DAAAHHH!!!

  • scrotally

    No emu4ios on iPhone App Store.

    • Marvin

      Try googling. Trust me

    • Matthew Rossman

      Yeah it's not part of the App Store or else it wouldn't exist. It's WAY better and doesn't require Dropbox.

      • FraggleJP

        It seems the same to me. In fact this one seems better because I don't have to keep changing the date on my device to get it working.

      • Matthew Rossman

        You only have to change the date the first time you open it after installing. Then you can keep it at 2013. I only say it's way better because it doesn't require a constant internet connection or the use of dropbox. Other than that they are the same.

  • chriscambell

    I wish TA would avoid reporting these things. Speeds up the expiration date like crazy.

    • Chq

      You wouldn't know this without TA too, isn't it?

    • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

      It's a bit of a conundrum.
      How else would TA get the word out?
      I don't think Apple monitors TA for sneaky emus.

      • http://ask.fm/MidianGTX MidianGTX

        Why would anybody want to get the word out? I mean sure, websites want page hits, blah blah blah = make money. But people who want to enjoy the games can pass it on in whispers.

      • Anthony

        I think Apple isn't dumb and, if they are, it would only take one person to educate them. Sites like TA know Apple is most likely already working on getting it removed. Unless a major news outlet or Nintendo themselves makes a fuss about it I doubt there will be much of a rush.

      • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

        Yeah, but what if you don't sit at the cool table in the lunchroom.
        How else would you know if not for TA?

      • http://ask.fm/MidianGTX MidianGTX

        Well now it's gone and nobody can get it. What's better, having to dig a little to find it, or never finding it?

    • swatbot

      Hard to say. Maybe they'd stay up if news outlets didn't harp on them repeatedly in an inflammatory manner.
      Gridlee was up for quiet a while after TA reported it, but every other gaming news site was publishing articles entitled "Apple Still alowing Emulator on App store" on a weekly basis. I'm sure that must have had something to do with it.

    • Julio Marquez

      If they didn't report it, most users would never find out anyway.

  • 61050

    yeah, i kinda feel dumb for throwing away my dollar on something i coulda had for free. i guess it is more about the novelty though anyway though.

  • splinker

    Bought it. Still in Russian App Store.

  • monoclespectacle

    Just dl'ed.

    No probs!

    • monoclespectacle

      Love how they incorporated one of my favorite emulators.

      SNES9X ftw. All roms are working flawlessly.

      I am Earthbound. The Mystical Ninja knows the Secret of Evemore. But the Demon's Crest will align with the Harvest Moon initiating the Chrono Trigger.

      All is well.

  • Marvin

    This has been out since November. I may wait for another price drop as I already have an emulator

        "emu4ios" couldn't be found in german App-Store.

      Holding out on unofficial emulators is a risky move. It could get pulled at any minute.

      • Marvin

        It's been pulled and edited but there's a workaround

  • Thicky

    One quick question: can I load roms through iTunes through file transfer?

    • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

      Nope.
      Gotta UL the ROMs to DropBox & then RFM gets 'em from DB.
      A DB account is fast & free: just an addy & a passcode.

      • scykei

        Problem's that I don't always have an Internet connection.

      • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

        You don't need a connection to play.
        You only need a connection to go from DB to RFM.
        Once the ROMs go from DB to RFM, that's it.

    Taa-DAAAHHH!!!

  • timmfox

    Quick question - this works great for me. I am thinking about buying an iCade. Can anyone test with the iCade and let us know if it works? The article mentioned support, but I wanted to double-check.

    • slamraman

      Works beautifully with iCade.

      • timmfox

        Thanks. I appreciate the post.

      • slamraman

        Button mapping on iCade mobile and 8-bitty isn't great - some fire buttons use shoulder buttons (still workable though) but with iCade proper it plays like a charm.

      • timmfox

        Thanks. I was deciding on which one to go with. Looks like I'll get iCade original.

    • splinker

      Been reported on the forums that iCade is fully supported.

  • thall72

    Still in US store.

  • AliveThrouDeath

    Out of curiosity, has nobody else here tried out the emulators on emu4ios? I mean, the only weird thing about them is having to set your device back to 2012 for install, but aside from that you get apps that are straight-up emulators, not apps hiding emulators inside of them.

    • http://ascii.textfiles.com/ iPadCary

      I'd be interested in hearing that, too.
      Resetting the date has me worried.
      Don't wanna futz with firmware especially
      with 7 just around the corner.

      • laxking97

        The only reason you need to set the date back is because apple was allowing the apps online until the day after TA reported about it. You don't necessarily need to change it to 2012 just before apple shut down the system they were using. It's just tricking your device to think the date is alright.

      • Marvin

        You used to be able to download and use it without setting your date back but apple patched the ability to download it, but was only effective after a certain date. You could set it for the day before that happened but setting to 2012 is guaranteed to be before

      • FraggleJP

        I like the gbc emulator there. And I like how I can have that along with this one. The date thing is a pita though.

    • Serafiniert

      I tried the "time machine"-trick and it works perfectly. The only problem is that you are allowed to install just 1 of those "emus". in that case grab the snes emu from here and install p.e. the gba emu from emus4ios. my advice is: grab every emulator or screen recorder which is avaible at iOS, and always make a backup of the app

      • PumpkinEater78

        How do you backup an app? I guess you mean on your computer through iTunes?

  • ap3604

    Quick question - Does anyone have an iCade 8-bitty or iCade mobile they use with this? I'm curious what the button layout is.

    • BulkSlash

      I've tried it with my 8-bitty and the button mapping is terrible. In Mario World, L is jump, Start is spin jump and one of the face buttons is run.

      I've just had a comb through the files hoping to find a config file that can be changed but I wasn't able to find anything. Annoyingly the on-screen buttons don't disappear when using the 8-bitty either.

      I suppose it's passable if you're playing a fairly easy game, but if it's something tricky like Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts it's probably going to be quite frustrating.

    • lordyokomoto

      Erm just google .smc rom and hey presto ;)

    • ikari_paul

      Coolromdotcom ;-)

      Either way, just google what you want

  • readysetboom

    Does this work with other controllers? Other than the icade? Duos? Ect.....

  • BustaFoo

    If you were able to download it it will work but I think a lot of people were like me and didn't realize that some of the ROMs are saved using the "*.sfc" extension when this program requires the "*.smc" file extension.

    So to get it to work all you need to do is rename the ROM file name to ***.smc from whatever it originally was and it will boot right up.

  • lordyokomoto

    F zero runs well ;))) first one I always try;)

  • ikari_paul

    Someone really needs to sneak a ScummVM emulator into the appstore. Thats really the one ipad owners need ;-)

  • stormy8888

    Is it good? It just fin downloading

  • Rustrobot

    I'm anxious for emulators when official controller support comes in iOS 7.

  • lordyokomoto

    Psx4all ... Now I can dream .. One day it might sneak in

  • Presty6

    Am I the only one who thinks its fishy that this app has been around since November of LAST year. Maybe this app IS legal. Isn't the only reason emulators are not allowed on the App Store because it requires you to download stuff from the Internet and save it to your iPod. But now that you download it via Dropbox is it allowed?

  • lordyokomoto

    If by some slim chance the peeps that made this app look here please add .7z extensions :) also dpad good on controllers but can be cumbersome on screen maybe change it to a virtual joystick ;)))

    • ikari_paul

      They also need to update this and remove the virtual stick overlays when using icade and the ipad in landscape mode

      • Julio Marquez

        Can they update it now that it's gone from the store?

      • ikari_paul

        nope.
        lol, this app was on the appstore since last november.

  • shieldser99

    What's the cheapest pad that's compatible with iphone (without jailbreaking) that will play the snez games?

    • ikari_paul

      Wait for ios7 next week. There will be a flood of official joypads, and the price will come down. Not sure if this app would be compatible with them, though

      Icade is compatible, and i think they make a joypad. Look on their site

  • Piccadillio

    Just saw that this is now third in the top paid app chart in the UK.

  • Bone16

    Totally Awesome!!! Just downloaded and tried Earthbound. Works perfectly! Even without an icade totally playable. For the games that rely on the shoulder buttons though I would suggest investing in a controller. Thanks TA!!

  • Bone16

    And don't forget this app does so much more! Play your mp3's and watch your videos in mp4 format. Dropbox only gives 2 gb for free but that's more than enough space. Tested both and they also work perfectly. Best 99 cents you'll ever spend. Grab it while u can!

  • evildude

    Hey guys, I have tons of games but the file ends in .nes and its not working. I have already change the file to .smc and I get nothing but a black screen with the controller. What gives?
    Can anyone provide a link to get some more games?

    Thanks!

    • Topbeast

      Same here :S

    • icepulse

      .nes are NES roms. This is a SNES emu.

      • Topbeast

        The file ends with ".zip" and then i change it to ".smc" but i only get a black screen,help. :/

      • lordyokomoto

        Don't need to change zip to smc it will unzip it itself then play ;)

      • BustaFoo

        You need to rename the file inside of the zip file not the name of the zip file itself.

  • Eidaven

    How has Apple not removed this from the App Store yet?... It's been #1 in the US for a majority of the day now.

  • HelperMonkey

    "The item you tried to buy is no longer available."

  • tqt1586

    Now it's gone I snagged it 20 minutes ago, check just a few seconds ago and poof :(

    • Jake7905

      Yup, just tried to buy it. Gone.

  • zombierevolver

    I am going to report this app to apple and I am gonna jailbreak my iphone and download a cracked pirated version of this app and then share it on a torrent.

  • zombierevolver

    do apple offers refunds? For removed app?

    • ikari_paul

      in what sense? you bought it, downloaded it. you have it on your pc. youll always be able to use it (hope theres no problem with ios7, though)

  • EZ Ice

    Controls look annoying...

  • Yeong-Tae

    A question about emu4ios...Is there any difference between the SNES and GBA emulators or the Awesome Baby Name and this Remote File emus? I already have the two from the App Store (and the old Nescaline, which I can't get to work anymore)...so I'm thinking about downloading a Genesis or GB emulator from emu4ios if there's no difference in the GBA & SNES emus.

    Also, are there any negative effects to changing the time on my iPhone?

  • HardyRawls

    Thanks, TA! Now let me kiss you on the mouth.

  • Phantom Bruiser

    "How do you do this, where do you get games, help help help." JESUS, DO YOU WANT US TO WIPE FOR YOU, TOO? it's so flipping simple, if you can't figure it out or are too dumb to Google it, you don't deserve to have nice Nintendo things on your iPad! Please refrain from breeding unless you know your stupid genes are recessive.

    • Eric Rosario

      Just got my first iphone ever 3 months ago but since you're offering please make sure you get my entire crack when you wipe.

  • TriploSix

    A AppStore já baniu o remote file manager da loja!

  • Kane

    Like if you downloaded this before it got pulled.

    Almost 200 comments & 15+ pages on the messageboard.
    This only speaks to the power of a console emulated on a device
    that's infinately more powerful than it ever was,
    yet look at all of the interest & enthusiasm it generates!
    The SNES is truly a God among ths pantheon of consoles.
    Now if someone could get an Intellivision emulator in the App Store,
    all would be right with the world ....
    2-player online Football FTW!

    • timmfox

      Agreed. Great comments. I love Nintendo and I have a 3DS XL. However, this SNES emulator looks so damn good. I was really floored.

      I think it is best for RPGs and some racing games. Controls are difficult for play formers such as Mario All-Stars.

  • Eric Rosario

    It's gone in the US store as of this morning. How do I back-up that one app on my iphone? Not sure if its part of the regular sync I do for movies and music or if I have to do a "purchase transfer".

  • Chris Backe

    It's definitely gone now - hope everyone got it.

    • Eric Rosario

      Oh yea! I just gotta back it up when I get home. I'm brand new to the iOS ecosystem so even stuff I google seems a tad confusing. One thing is clear in searches is that iTunes is Apple's worst product. :o)

  • HardyRawls

    I'm curious what games people are playing with this given the fact that the controls are a bit cumbersome on an idevice. (Super Mario, for example, is almost impossible.) I've had success with Raiden Trad and F-Zero.

  • Protoman

    Nice. Just finished uploading my 1gig pack of roms.

  • Th3R3n3gad3

    Why does the ta app date go back to dec 12?

  • AznSW

    Can someone tell me how to use this?

    I added the dropbox connection and put the roms in the dropbox, but nothing changed.

    Still a blank screen saying connections and when i try to add my dropbox account aagin it says "you can only add one dropbox"??

    • Protoman

      Close the app entirely than restart it. That's what I had to do. When you restart it should be there.

  • Chq

    On iPhone 4 it runs horrible.

  • Arboc

    This probably is a dumb question but can the developer update an app that's been removed from the App Store? I would love them to add GBA functionality to this app.

  • RamazAdelphos

    This app is amazing!!

  • RamazAdelphos

    When I get bored of the App Store/ iTouch games. I just open up this app and play Zelda, Final Fantasy 3, Kirby, Mario, Mega Man, Donkey King Country, and Chrino Trigger omg

  • Benjamin Cichanowicz

    i bought the app but can't find a local copy of the ipa file on my drive so if i update to iOS 7 i will lose it. can someone send me the IPA file at rebating at gmail dot com? thanks
