    Has anyone with a MyTouch/Magic tried any of the nesoid/snesoid/negsoid/gameboid emulators? Is there a way to get in touch with the developer to see if he's working on, or planning on working on, new versions to handle the lack of a keyboard?

    What do you propose be done?

    Done by whom? Mytouch/Magic owners could load up nesoid and see if it brings up a virtual keyboard, or any virtual controls, for touch input instead of physical button input. If it doesn't support any touch input, can it map any of the buttons (I think I read it supports trackball input)? If not then maybe the developer could touch input controls.

    My only visibility into the app store is AndroLib/Cyrket (don't yet have an Android phone, having trouble deciding which one, maybe you can guess why), and I don't see any developer contact info or feedback options on those sites.

    Any touch input is pretty much out of the question for the time being, as Android doesn't support multi-touch. Sure you can map it to the limited number of keys that are available on the Magic, but that would make for a pretty clunky game experience.

    This is true, I have ggNES Lite (free!) and it lets you remap buttons, even to the screen, but it doesn't really work. I tried just maping the A and B buttons to the screen and it would work once out of every 4 or 5 taps.
