    The on-screen buttons are in a poor location, and the app crashes when you scan for Bluetooth controllers. It's pretty unplayable.

    The emulator suffers from slowdown and frame skips. Performance slows down to a crawl and becomes unplayable when the frame skip is set to 0. This only happens on the shield as this works without issues on the jxd s7800b. Please fix the performance on the shield

    Force closes every time I connect to a Wiimote via Bluetooth. Can't really play old school NES games with a touch screen. Basically a worthless app. Was fine until latest update. Uninstalling. Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
