    Default iPhone C64 emulator OK'd, sans BASIC
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VA3NB-jpGA&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - C64 for iPhone[/ame]

    AppleInsider reports that Apple has approved Manomio's Commodore 64 emulator, having rejected it in June because of its inclusion of a BASIC interpreter. Apple explicitly forbade apps from launching their own any executable code in the licensing for the version 2.0 SDK.

    The ability of apps in 3.0 to enable in-app purchasing allowed Manomio to work around the limitation. Perhaps better characterized as a simulator rather than a true emulator, the Manomio app cannot run arbitrary C64 code, but only disk images licensed by the company.

    It's not really an emulator though...
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Finally something at least close to an emulator makes it to the App Store. Maybe more developers will be able to achieve this by observing the method used for this one.

    Awesomeness! Too bad Nintendo won't make one for the App Store (which is unlikely).
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    (If you’re dying to get your BASIC on, however, reader Stooovie let us know you can still access it by enabling “always show full keyboard”, starting a game, paging over to the EXTRA keyboard, and then tapping RESET. Boom, dropped into BASIC with a ready-prompt — though we clearly don’t remember enough C64 BASIC to see if it actually does anything or just sits there blinking. Commenters?)
    this seemed to work, i tried some small bits of code from youtube tutorial videos and they worked...

    i was also wondering about ssh'ing disk images into this. i just recently bought a c64 to make music with, and it would be cool to be able to use some of those trackers on my phone.

    i looked around, and i don't nearly understand anything, but the application folder included a games folder...
    with each game having a few .png files, a .t64 or .d64 file, which you can easily acquire, a .state file, which i have no idea what that is, and a .plist file, which i assume some smarter person that myself could modify ?
    i'm sure its much trickier than that, but i hope somebody figures it out

    An emulator on the app store could be cool, it has a lot of potential to build an emulator tab or community, like there would be a category of emulator games, DLC for an app lol

    I'm guessing the state file is for saves (IE Save states)

    This is C64 not N64 for you guys talking about mario :P.
