PPSSPP apk Fun in Android
For those who don’t know what an emulator is, it is a software platform that allows applications of one platform to work on another. Designed by Henrik Rydgård, PPSSPP does exactly this. It enables your android or iOS device and makes it compatible for most of the PSP games. But PPSSPP is much more than your everyday game emulators like GBA or Citra. It allows the games to run in full HD resolution, and even in the latest devices, you get to play in almost twice the resolution of the original game. Like most game emulators it allows you to save any game at any point of time, as it has its own memory slots. Another huge up is that it gives you the choice between on-screen controls, or attachable joysticks or keyboards. This means no matter which console you’re used to gaming in, you get to use it now to play all those cool PSP games!

The latest version, 184.108.40.206 even has the Galaxy s7 bugs fixed and is available for free download for android 2.3 and up, and iOS jailbroken iPhones and iPads with Cydia installed.
