    Why is it called GPS Phone? GPS has already been taken by something called a "Global Positioning System" wasn't the developer aware of this and try to avoid confusion? GPS doesn't even fit. A three letter acronym for a game boy advance would be GBA, not GPS, P and S don't even occur in the words "game boy advance."

    It may as well have been called rutabaga sandwich.app.

    Seriously, what the f***.

    Just had to finally get that off my chest.

    It is a port of an emulator for the PSP called gPSP. He just added "hone" to the end.

    aha! I always thought that gpsphone was just a typo of gspphone (making it game boy single player phone). but as usual Danls answers sound superior to mine
