A word of warning
How to Fix Untrusted Developer Error:

- Remember the name of the enterprise developer from the error message and close it down
- Open the Settings app and go to General > Profiles
- Find that name in the profiles list and tap it
- Tap on Trust, close settings and the error will no longer appear
Originally developed by Martin Freij as a Windows app, Nestopia can still be used on desktop computers. The original sources are still available on the Nestopia home page, and you can download the toolkit used for developing the Mac port from the app developer pages.
