ActiveGS by the Free Tools Association

Oh, man. This brings back memories. I cut my teeth as a young nerd hacking my family’s Apple 2gs in assembly language using Merlin 16. 2.4mhz, baby. That was the stuff.

The Free Tools Association was my idol. They were doing crazy things with graphics and sound that many thought wasn’t possible on that trusty old beige box. They’ve long had an browser-plugin emulator, but I just noticed today while following the path of nostalgia that they have an app in the app store.

Behold, the Free Tools Association Apple 2gs emulator for iPhone and iPad.
