NDS4iOS is a Nintendo DS (NDS) emulator for iOS devices, which is a port of the multi-platform DeSmuME 0.9.10 for iOS (see also Android OS version). It was created by InfiniDev, a joint development group with many members, including popular GBA4iOS creator Riley Testut, Michael Zhang, and PPSSPP iOS build manager Karen Tsai.
