This interface looks slick as hell, and with a built-in emulator? I'm sold. Wish I had a way of compiling Xcode projects.

If I only had one with free, I would spend it on iCade support, as playing with touch controls is not working very well.

Amazing! I remember talking to Mr SID at X'2012 and here it comes :) Good things come to people who wait.

I agree with not stressing to Apple about the emulation part, Manomio had [a href="http://toucharcade.com/2009/11/09/manomios-commodore-64-emulato.."]a lot of issues[/a] but they finally got it approved.

This is magnificent stuff , it works perfectly on my ipad mini. I hope this project is develloped even more in the future, like customizable (F) keys on screen. Thanks Andreas.

w00p! its running now! thanks mrsid ;)

the emu runs smooth so that rocks.

One feature request: enable "watch this prod" for all release types (like game previews, it seems disabled for those)

G R E A T! Finally someone ported vice and even added a great frontend to use! So dumb question: everything on CSDB? Hence games and other releases too, right? ;) Where to get it?

One thing that I forgot to mention is that everything you view in CSDb is cached on your iPad and you can watch it again if you're offline by going to the "Recently Viewed" category.
I was watching Coma Light 13 on a plane the other day...

@Deev I agree, a HTML5 with responsive webdesign version of CSDb.dk would be AWESOME - I dont have the time unfortunately. Otherwise I would be happy to assist in that too.

Cool will this app ever be ported to iPhone ?

Thanks to Mr. SID's help i have it now running on my ipad. All i can say is: WOW!.
The interface may have its quirks but is already very, very useable and the built in emulator is just what i've been missing on the ipad so far. Now let's go and see some demos :)

Fantastic! Works perfect, thanx Mr.SID!

Ultimately the way to do this would probably be through the browser, with an HTML/JS emulator and a responsive layout for CSDB. That way, the platform is irrelevant. Not sure the technology is quite there yet though.

Mr.Sid: Don't show the Apple dudes the Emulator, put it in the background, tell us a keyword or key combination to activate the emulator! :D Maybe this works...!

I don't like pads and other touch thingies, but this is a great idea for those who likes those. Thumbs up to anything that helps our scene!

@Scout: Yes, I'm still thinking about these possibilities. I can also include the Top 100 of each category in the app itself (that's what they suggested).
But one of the main use cases for me is quickly checking out new releases to decide if they're worth to transfer to real hardware.
User Comment

Cool!

If you drop the emulator bit and replace it by a YT/Vimeo link (which needs a csdb alteration to add it with a release entry), Apple might approve.
Jailbroken iOS devices can still use the full featured Cydia version.

Just brainfarting here...

Looks absolutely beautiful, can't wait to check it out when my gf's iPad arrives.

On the other hand, it makes me a bit sad (and concerned) that we've come to a point where we are producing CSDb clones in order to improve its usability on different devices, instead of making better CSDb itself.

*sigh* :/

@Knut Clausen: I always wanted to do iPad first, and think about iPhone later. There's no big reason why it shouldn't be possible, but many layout and navigation details need to be sorted out. Feel free to adapt the source for an iPhone target...

Oh you did mention Cydia, if I only could delete my last message...
User Comment
Submitted by itch on 12 April 2014
It should be awesome if you could release this fine app in cydia, so that everyone with a jailbroken iDevice could us it without the need of developer account :P

This is totally amazing. Love it. Well done Andreas!

This is great. The project won't compile as an iPhone app - is there any reason other than the split view controller that is only available for iPad? A simplified iPhone version would be great for me, and I'll be happy to contribute.

Totally cool with build in C64 emulator.

Just wondering, now that CSDb.dk clearly has a competitor, perhaps it was time to redesign the layout of the website too? I think most of the app's great design could be inspirational to a new CSDb.dk v2.0 ?
