Baby Naming App for iPhone Hides Game Boy Advance Emulator

Awesome Baby Names, an iPhone app for a baby name generator, has been pulled from the Apple App Store, following discovery that a functional Game Boy Advance (GBA) emulator was hidden with it. Originally priced at US$1.99 before it was taken down from the App Store, the app allows users to load up and play GBA ROMs without having to jailbreak their iPhones.

However, users will have to 'side-load' the GBA BIOS file into the app via third-party tools, after which they will need to tap a series of buttons to access the emulator. This isn't the first time that emulators were sneaked into the Apple App Store.
