Nintendo is working on a Game Boy emulator for iOS iPhone and iPad!

Is Nintendo finally getting it? Would it be possible to play Game Boy games legally on iOS? There is hope: Nintendo has filed a patent that makes it possible to play games on tablets and smartphones.

Game Boy emulator

Currently it is possible to play Nintendo games on your iOS device without jailbreak via an unofficial app. GBA4iOS is a popular app that lets you play Game Boy games on your iPhone/iPad and iPod touch device. But, because the app is illegal, it isn't available in the App Store. The Japanese developer Karen Stai has found a way to make Nintendo games playable via an emulator in Safari. She has succeeded to build such a system in a mobile browser, without jailbreaking the iOS device. Same as the Netflix-like torrent streaming service ''MovieBox'', which also came available via Safari.

GBA4iOS has shown that Game Boy games work fine on iOS devices via an emulator. But of course, we would like to play Nintendo games from an official app from Nintendo itself. There is a glimmer hope for Nintendo fans, because the Japanese company has filed a patent, which describes that Nintendo wants to emulate Game Boy hardware. The software (games) would have to operate on mobile devices.

Nintendo made again an operating loss. This is mainly duo to the poor sales of the Wii, which is currently defeated by Playstation 4 and Xbox One. And not only by the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, everyone who owns an iPhone or iPad device, don't need an 3DS, because why would you? For years are people saying that Nintendo should create Nintendo games for iPhone and iPad. And now it's probably finally time.

It is also very strange if Nintendo will great such a system for iOS devices, who will than buy an Nintendo 3DS, if you can play Nintendo games on an iPhone. It isn't very logical, but for us, it is great news!

Let us know what you think about this in the comment section down below.

Kono.ai - Mobile Scheduler App review for iPhone and Apple Watch

Meetings at work, picking up the kids, going to the gym - when you have a busy life there are a lot of things you have to juggle at the same time. To make life easier, your very own personal assistant Kono can help you schedule everything you need to do.

Kono’s taking over

There are literally tons of schedule and planning apps available online. However, Kono sticks out from the crowd because the app itself will give you suggestions when and where to meet! Not only that, Kono will even automatically send invites to your guests.

Getting lunch with myself

Kono needs some input from you in order to make an accurate schedule. You start by having to connect with Google or Facebook. For some reason I can’t connect with Facebook - Google it is. After synchronizing with my phone’s and Google’s calendar, I’m given my Kono calendar which shows all up and coming birthdays. Makes sense because I don’t use my phone or Google to plan anything. I’m an old fashioned paper planner girl. There is a green plus button at the bottom of my Kono calendar. Not to my surprise, it’s the make a new event button. I think it’s time to have lunch with myself. I hope I can make it.

So, should I try Kono.ai? It's available for iPhone and Apple watch. Meetings at work, picking up the kids, going to the gym - when you have a busy life there are a lot of things you have to juggle at the same time.The app checks the schedule of my invited guests after which it shows me options for a meeting place. Kono is correct in suggesting establishments in the Netherlands, but misses the mark by

suggesting Amsterdam. However, I realize I haven’t given Google or Kono any precise information on my location. My mistake. After randomly choosing a place and time, Koni sets up an invitation, sends it after my confirmation and lunch has been put on my calendar. It still has the pending status so I confirm and now it’s time to see if my guest does too.

Considering I’ve invited myself, I immediately go to my other email account to see if I received the invitation. No, bummer! After everything went so smoothly, I’m disappointed I have to wait 25 minutes before I receive my invite.

What else can Kono do for me?

I played around a bit after planning the appointment. I changed the time and immediately got an email telling me the event had been updated. You can add your home and work address. The more information you give and the more plans you add to your calendar, the smarter Kono will be. For example, when planning an appointment, if you have meetings back to back, Kono will never plan the next appointment 15 minutes later when your travel time is 40 minutes. You will receive notifications when it’s time to leave or when you are going to be late based on your location and average travel time.

Are the guests you’re inviting also using Kono? All calendars will be automatically compared to pick a perfect time. Everyone not using an app will get an email like I did - but remember that could take up to 30 minutes.


So, should I try Kono.ai?

The apps looks good and I always enjoy an app telling me Good Night or TGIF it’s almost the weekend. The process of planning an appointment went well and I like the fact that Kono does a lot for you. You only have to make few choices. Unfortunately, you can’t synchronize Kono with any other calendar then Google’s or the one on your phone. If that works for you, Kono won’t disappoint!

Kono.ai is available for free in the App Store (iOS8,3+, universal, Apple Watch supported). Do you still have paid apps on your download wishlist? You can buy an iTunescard on iTunescard.com.

Twitter sharing disappeared from the latest iOS beta

The latest beta of iOS solves many bugs, but also contains a "wolf": the disappearance of Twitter in iOS sharing options. Without warning Apple has removed the link sharing a text or link to Twitter, a notable absence in both the system itself and in the Apple Apps comes as standard, like Photos or Safari.
Apple has removed the Twitter app icon in iOS 8.3.

This change could hide a big change from the App, Twitter itself, which could be enriched with new features making it much less necessary the old sharing function. There is also a precedent for this type of "withdrawal", with the case of YouTube, which had been removed from the version of iOS 6 before reappearing as an app "stand-alone"much richer performance and effective application very infrequently updated proposed standard.

Hope nonetheless that these changes does will impact negatively on some not particularly convenient features, as does hanging a picture with his iPhone to then switch on the fly on his Twitter account directly from sharing options. It is not certain that a remote application is in this case as convenient to use.

Apple Watch
Apple has been slow to come to the main course in this Keynote, but at least the food is plentiful there. The watch has connected first got a call from his post... fitness, to monitor its efforts throughout the day, illustrating his point with the field work of athlete named Christy Turlington Burns, who participates in half marathons in Africa while giving assistance to the most vulnerable local populations.

Apple Watch in all its form
After this appetizer (to remain in the culinary analogy), came the great ball of applications; In traditional information apps CNN and ESPN, Apple introduced other more novel applications like remote to open the doors of his house (even at great distance course)... And check opening through images from the camera to the house directly on the screen of the Apple Watch! The Apple Watch can also receive calls, which undoubtedly recall some of the old movies of James Bond. For the rest of the presentation, we must recognize that what we see does not really change what had been presented in the previous Keynote.
