VBA8 is a Gameboy Advance emulator that allows you to play and store Gameboy Advance games on your phone. The app includes a free demo.

The paid version allows you to:
- Store an infinite number of ROMs on your phone.
- Pin your ROMs to the start screen.
- Load and save at any time during gameplay (you can still save using the in-game saving methods in trial).
- Turbo mode by pressing the camera button.
- Import and export your saves using SkyDrive.
- Use Gameshark and CodeBreaker codes.

Changes in 1.2.0:
- Fixed a bug that sometimes interrupted the importing of save files.
- Added support for Gameshark and CodeBreaker codes. Cheat codes can be managed using the new entry in the ROMs context menu in the ROM list.
- Added a new entry to the ROMs context menu to manage save states (supports delete only for now).
- Added an option to the general settings to manually create snapshots as shown on tiles. If the option is activated, the emulators appbar has a new entry to create a snapshot.

    Easy to import games using email. Only issues are that it drains the battery fast and I cannot find the paid version. Great emulator!

    Totally easy and great to use. The bad thing though is that it drains the battery rather quickly when playing. It would be greater if it would not drain as much battery.
