  • Apple Approves then Disapproves new NES Emulator 'Nescaline' App


    UPDATE: It appears that this app has been pulled from the AppStore.
    Only a few moments after I posted this, the app is now gone from existence. It's pretty obvious as to why this probably happened, but nonetheless, thats the way it goes. It just makes one wonder what is really going on for the approval process...


    Once again we are seeing Apple approve Apps that we would have never thought possible. Either they are really listening to the developers to cut some slack, or they are all drunk out of their minds, drinking Egg Nog and sipping Cocoa, with the AppStore on autopilot. Either way, I won't complain, although

    Nescaline was unleashed upon the App Store today by Jonathan Zdziarski. Nescaline comes with some free games, however as usual, you'll have to add your own roms. However, this is not as easy as just SSH'ing them in. Obviously those that don't have Jailbroken phones can't do so. But the App does have the ability to point to a URL containing a ROM and download it to your device to play as you please.

    I could go on to explain the controls, layout and gameplay, but nothing is really different than the version we have available to us in Cydia. So here are some details and some screenies

    Note: I only found this in the US Store

      Ok I will try to upload it in a few, but I'm only going to leave the link up for a few hours. Also, you guys have to help me learn how to add ROMS such as Mario to it. I already own the games, but can't figure out how to add it to the emulator.

      Just a question while this is syncing/uploading. Does your iPhone have to be jailbroken to load .ipa files from other people?

      Without contact info: yes. With contact info: no.

      What do you mean contact info? I'm farrrr from knowledgeable about how to hack iPhone-related material. And sorry it's taking so long. Someone called me during the sync so I had to restart the process.

      That is in no way an excuse for theft. In any way, shape, or form. Not saying you are advocating it, I'm just saying.

      finally got it to sync. now it's uploading. so if my friend has an app I want, he can just send me the .ipa? neither of us are jailbroken. he is the only one with that app, so does that mean there are 4 more ppl he can send it to?

      Yes but it will ask for the password for his apple ID so he will either give you that or come over and type it in.

      I dont know why ppl are so scared to JB their phone.. Its YOUR phone. Its NOT illegal... There is no damage that can be done to your phone unless you're just incapable of reading....

      JB has so soooo many features.... Unlike Apple obviously, they dont allow you to do anything to your phone. true you can get lockscreen wallpaper... BOO!!! JB is a whole new world...


      Not just changing your wallpaper... but changing icons, different sounds, ringtones without going through and paying $.99 for converting music you ALREADY OWN...F*ck Apple on that... JB will allow 100% customization...

      So those scared to JB need to reconsider.. There is nothing wrong with JB. Dont let apple scare you into thinking it is...so those being straight punks, do some research. I have swapped phones after JB bc my speaker went out or bc a valid warranty issue from apple and they never knew my phone was JBroken...

      Why let apple control what you spend money on..so sick of ppl being all scared and riding on Apple's jock....
      Reminds me of that punk off youtube name Chris Pirillo....
