    Commodore 64: There's An App For That

    For those of us who grew up in the 80′s, Apple has brought back a classic! Unfortunately, they’ve pulled the BASIC interpreter and Commodore 64 ROM files which allowed you to include your own BASIC code and was what I loved most on my good old Commodore 64.

    From CNET

    The Commodore 64 emulator application for iPhone was pulled from the App Store by Apple in September for leaving its BASIC interpreter intact and accessible via a backdoor hack. This week, the app has returned after some major rework by its creator, Manomio.

    C64 no longer contains the BASIC interpreter and Commodore 64 ROM files, since Apple originally rejected the app for these reasons. As a result, the emulator no longer lets you run your own BASIC code inside the app. However, it will still run classic Commodore 64 games, and it now comes with a total of eight free games (with more to come later via in-app purchasing).
