    So I'm interested in possible getting back into some old games using the GameBoid, SNESoid, and NESoid emulators available through the market!

    My concern is that previously when I would download PC roms & emulators the source sites were always loaded with smut, malicious software, and other goodies you surely want on your computers.

    Is this an issue with Android Roms? Where do you find Android Roms, can we get a list of sites that members here have had good luck finding quality roms without hassle? pls avoid Torrents, cause I don't use that so it wont help :(

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Google + Firefox + AdBlockPro + common sense = Every rom you'll ever need.

    that cost covers "all you can eat" style roms? or is there still a charge per rom?

    Do the roms come onto your phone ready to go or is there still some set-up necesarry? (hard?easy?)

    looks pretty good if its unlimited and easy flow from download to play!

    That is all you can eat, it has more games than you can handle for multiple systems. It downloads to a folder called roms. When you open your emulator just point it to that folder and that's it. Its really simple.

    I use a website called "The Old Computer" (I believe). Google it, or NES Roms and you will get a few options
