Apple boots popular GameBoy emulator ‘knock-off’ from its iPhone App Store — Furious developer of the original decries Apple’s App Review process

The App Store has finally opened up to allow video game emulators and the biggest launch so far has shined a spotlight on problems with Apple’s review process. 

GBA4iOS was an emulator that originally launched over a decade ago, allowing users to play GameBoy games on their best iPhone. After being taken down, Riley Testut, its developer, made the entire app open-source, meaning anyone could access the code and get it running themselves, with enough know-how. Over the weekend, another developer took advantage of it being open-source to put up their own copy of the app, which Testut lampooned on his Mastodon account
