Today we mourn the loss of the popular emulator, GBA4iOS. Although it officially died a couple of years ago, the developer, Riley Testut, has managed to keep it going on some form or another but it has become more of a struggle recently and he took the decision to kill it off completely. However, it is being replaced with a better app called Delta Emulator.
