Some of the features of the iNDS Nintendo Emulator include:
- Dropbox Sync support
- Frame Skip functionality

How to download and install iNDS Emulator for iOS
Note that you do not require a jailbroken iOS Device to download and install iNDS. Simply follow the steps outlined below:
- Open your device’s Safari Browser and visit iemulators.com
- Choose the ‘Apps’ tab and navigate to ‘iNDS – A DS Emulator
- Tap on it, and in the resulting pop-up window, tap on ‘Install iNDS.’
- Wait for a few seconds for a popup to appear confirming your installation.
- After the installation is complete, trust the iNDS Emulator profile under Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management.
- You are ready to launch the application from the home-screen icons and download whatever Nintendo DS ROMs you wish.
Note that the iNDS app is digitally signed by TweakBox. However, Apple can revoke it whenever and this causes the app to crash continually. Simply re-install and if the crashing persists, wait a couple of days and try again.
Hopefully, this iNDS Nintendo Emulator for iOS guide has you back to re-living your glorious Nintendo DS days successfully.
