Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator For iPad

There is a new MAME port out for the iPad called iMAME4all.

The original MAME was released in February of 1999 with the intent to save the arcade classics for future generations. The over 2000 arcade games themselves have been dumped from the actual original machine roms and are readily availalbe for download from numerous sites.

This sounds quite monstrously illegal to me. Has this been done with the permission of the copyright holders of the games?

In a very small number of cases yes, in the vast majority no.
MAME operates (or at least used to) a date cutoff, so that they would not include support for any machines newer than a certain period.

This thing is only available via jailbreak.

I do love mame, and this is the first thing to tempt me to jailbreak.

But I still probably will not.
