How to Manage the ROMs Emulator
Once inside the IGBA 2.0 emulator is very simple. At the top you can load our own ROMs. It is best to use the Files app to store your ROMs so that when uploading the file it is much easier to load it. In the lower part will appear the game added. In my case, as you can see, I added the Legend of Zelda in one of his many adventures.
In the top right, you will see a button shaped bag, that’s the repository library. Once inside, you will see a list of repositories where a lot of ROMs are stored. Search for games among all the repositories but in case of not finding a certain game and you have a library where it is located, click on the + button on the top right and add the URL of the library, it will load and install the ROM without any problem.

Your game has been added to your library
That means that the game you have selected has been added to your library. You can add as many games as you want since they will all be stored in your library. In addition, you do not have to add them all at once but you can go exploring all the repositories and add all those you want to have. Once you have it, press on the arrow in the upper left until you get to the library.
Note that this tutorial is compatible with both the iPhone and the iPad. What happens is that the advances you make in the game will not be saved on both devices.

You will access a screen divided into halves: in the first half the game will appear in question (it will take a few seconds to load the ROM) and at the bottom you will find the game controls: LR, AB, Select, Start, Menu and buttons of direction.
