heard a lot about this emulator
many consider it a lot better than nds4droid
Much better than most emulators
the first link is of the demo version and the second is of the paid one
try buying the paid version if you like the demo version

First, to get nice performance
Enable multi threaded 3d rendering option in the options menu (change options) and restart the emulator (may give graphical glitches)
If your emulator is still slow, set filter to none (makes the screen look pretty bad, however liked by some people)
Disable sound for even more speed
And don't mess with the amount of frameskips

Here are SkyandDirt's tweaking (battery) which really was helpful
With this I could run the emulator for 3.5+ hours without heating up my device

max702MHz (mines at 590)
min384MHz
ONDEMAND
90%hotplug
128MHz max GPU
It saves a lot of battery at those settings and runs the emulator without slowing it (at least for me)

Have you tried diamond or pearl on the emulator?

No I haven't tried, I'm not into Pokémon.

I've heard they run fine though, but make sure to get patched versions of those ROMs as they have anti piracy protection built in.

Example the prof Layton last spectre rom wouldn't get past the first puzzle until I got the patched version of the rom... In now on chapter 7

I tried Pokémon HG, White and Black 2... 100%! FULL SPEED! Amazing!
There's only a problem, the games crash really often.

Pokémon Diamant/Perle/Platine/Black 1&2/White 1&2/HG/SS work (patched versions)! Tested with my N4. New super Mario Bros and Mario Kart also work

From what I've heard and read, emulators in the Play Store like Desmune are ported from their Windows versions, while this one is made from the ground up to work on Android.
