- Setting up GPD with emulators and useful apps



Needs no introduction , really useful for emulating various systems in particular ones that dont get any real benefit from using a standalone emulator


For whatever reason it did not appear for me in the playstore 

I had to install an apk but then i did not have sound but then it did appear in the playstore

so uninstall from there then re install straight afterwards and everything is working


Google Play Store (Free)

Mupen64Plus FZ Edition

This emulator still gets updated, its free legit and runs well.

Google Play Store


great emulator which I almost prefer it on android

*Some minor configuring needed for controls*


Google Play Store (Paid)


runs amazingly well and its free

being able to play dreamcast games like Shenume on the go epic!

Great emulator although its paid or you can use lucky patcher with an apk

APK + (Lucky Patcher):

Google Play Store (Paid)


Useful Apps:

ES File Explorer

Better than the regular file explorer

Google Play Store (Free)


Lucky Patcher

Needed if dont want to pay for apps like DraStic and maybe others




Really useful media center and works well on the gpd

then with the mini hdmi to hdmi you can have it on your tv

- Making it look better

TV Launcher

New Launcher which in my opinion looks nicer and easy to customise to my taste / needs

its free with ads or paid with no ads (ads are not intrusive)

ARC Browser

Front End For Emulators its paid but you can grab a hacked apk
