SNES Emulator sneaks into the App Store, download before it gets pulled

Another emulator, this time for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, has sneaked into the App Store in the form of a file management app called “Remote File Manager.”

The app lets you view your remote files hosted on an FTP server or stored in your Dropbox account, but if you open an SMC file (SNES ROMs) from your Dropbox or FTP server, the app should open the SNES emulator instead of the usual file viewer.

The emulator works in both portrait and landscape mode, and is made for iPhone and iPad. The only downside seems to be the requirement to stay online while playing since you’re accessing the ROM from a remote server.

You might think that if developers of the app are taking a risk, they may as well include support for other retro gaming platforms, but the app only supports SNES ROMs.

If you’d like to have a non-jailbreak, permanent way of playing SNES games on your iPhone or iPad, you should quickly purchase this app for $.99. If you do purchase it, remember to sync your iOS device with your PC/Mac so that the .ipa file is backed up on your hard disk. We expect Apple to take it down very soon.
