    Here is an idea Ive been mulling over and it would be amazing if we could implement it, if somehow we could program the emulators to trick the ipod into thinking they were playing video, and then be able to use video out accordingly. Therefore instead of our fingers taking up half the screen and making it impossible to see we would be able to use the ipod just as the controller and play the game on our tv's, just an idea. Think it could work?

    Why would you want to do this? If you have a tv handy you are most likely at home and you can just play something on your computer or watch tv which would be far more entertaining then playing some of those gba games. imo.

    It would basically make the ipod touch the controller and you could play any of your favorite retro systems without the hassle of a bunch of cords.
