If there is one thing that users miss, now that jailbreaking appears to be no more, its downloading and using games emulators to play their favorite console games on their iOS devices. Cydia had several of these, covering multiple consoles and one stood out from the rest. GBA4iOS even made it into the iOS app store for a while but now that too has gone. Except it hasn’t because the developers have hauled it back out, updated it and brought it back.
