SToid Atari ST Emulator?

Sort of a random question, but I used an Atari ST for years back in the pre-PC days. I recently found an ST emulator for Android called SToid. Before I spend my hard earned $2.22 on it, I was wondering if any has tried it or knows if it's Fire compatible?

I did notice that comments on Google Play and AppBrain are pretty mixed, though it seems the newest 1.1 update is an improvement.

Actually Atari ST came out well after the IBM PC and more than a year after the original Macintosh (June 1985 vs August 1981 and January 1984, respectively). I had both monitors (640x480 monochrome and 640x240 color) and a DOS emulator that clipped onto the CPU.

One of the games I used to play a lot was this one:

If I can find a download, I'd definitely give it a try.

Yes, I should probably have said "my pre-pc" days. It took PCs a long time to catch up to the Atari, game and interface wise.

I still miss those 16-bit days. I had both monitors, and the Tuborcharger (I think it was called) PC emulator, and the Mac emulator that used the actual Mac Rom chips in a cartridge. Almost all my old computer stuff got thrown away, not by me, during a move.
