Android Tablet Question

Does anybody have an Android based Tablet ?

I just picked up a Samsung Tab 4 unit, it's quite nice and I'm looking for some gaming emulators and such.

Seems there is nothing yet available for AMIGA emulation but perhaps some older 8-bit machines like the C64 ?

Playing Solitaire gets boring after awhile

UAE4ARM works quite fine on Android tablets.

This is easy way to go regarding emulation on android tablets. What size tablet did you get?

BTW, on PC for old games/emulation I strongly suggest LaunchBox front end (with BigBox).

Interesting, I did a search here for UAE and didn't come across this particular build, must be too many matches

Thanks for the link.

I got the Tab 4 model with the 10.1 inch screen.

No problem...

Emulation on adroid has matured and most emulators work well, including Sony PSP emulator (ppsspp), game cube emulator etc.

There is UAE4ALL, UAE4ARM, UAE4Droid and a few others. There are also a couple mod players like Amiga Mod Guru.

Searching for UAE does bring up a lot of junk, search for Amiga and you'll find the good stuff.

Also, most Android support USB OTG, so you can buy a $ OTG cable and plug in an external mouse or keyboard (I have a wireless keyboard with touchpad) so you can feel more like the real thing.

jmmijo,

I just tried and I really like RetroX emulator front end for android. You can try it for 5 days free, and it is only ~13 bucks. It makes play amiga games much easier on android device, as well it has many other systems. I will test it more, but from what I see so far, it looks and works great.

Here is little video that got me to try it and test it.

Give it a try
