The JAD (Java Application Descriptor) file extension is produced by software application developers to package a set of Java applications or games on a mobile phone. The file will generally contain all the information associated with the game or application including the version number, instructions and images. GBA (Gameboy Advance) files that will only play on a Nintendo Gameboy can be converted into a JAR file with a free online conversion tool and then into a JAD file with another free online tool so the game is compatible with your mobile phone.
