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.
