    Finally!

    Pro's:

    - Great for Platform games like Floyd's Worthwhile Endeavor
    - Unlike the PowerShell, you won't have to upgrade your controller when you upgrade your phone.

    Cons:

    - Small: Might not be suitable for folks with large hands.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars

    High quality MFi controller

    • Written by from AUSTIN

    This controller is an excellent accessory addition for your iOS 7 device!
    Pros:
    Well constructed
    Pairing with my iPad was seamless
    Rather comfortable in the hands, more so than it would seem (feels like a GameBoy Micro)

    Cons:
    Does not work with the Mac at all (even though it is not advertised as such, it simply won't connect)
    The so called "cover" that is included with the controller simply will not stay on. This is the reason for 4 stars and not 5. It will stay on the back side barely, and function to add grips to the controller, but it will not stay on the front to protect the buttons.

    All around, I would recommend this controller highly! I look forward to giving it plenty of use down the road.

    Almost exactly what I always wanted

    • Written by from Geneva

    Pros:
    -Built in battery uses USB cable to charge.
    -Very portable and comes with a nice zipper bag.
    -Responsive, and well built
    -Bluetooth connection very simple

    Cons:
    -Size is seems a little too small for the large number of control.
    -Cover/Back piece does not attach well.

    At first I was taken back by the small size of the device, seeing photos I figured it would be comparable to any console controller. It's size is more closely related to the original NES controller. Luckily I don't have monster hands, so I can use the controller quite comfortably. Also, the smaller size is also a benefit since it doesn't take up much space in my bag.

    I have already enjoyed the controller playing Battle Supremacy. I am new to the game, but using the controller allowed me to be competitive against players who have earned far more powerful tank upgrades. Basically, for some games this will be a huge benefit over touch screen controls for players.

    Connection to the iPad was easy, less hassle than any other Bluetooth device I've paired.

    Lastly, my biggest complaint. The clear cover does not attach well... or at all. Seems like it should pop on and off, but there is no pop. It does not stay on as a cover, and takes too much work to get it to remain on the back of the controller. iPad covers built by 3rd parties prior to the release of an iPad attach well in almost all cases... how can a manufacturer of both items not mold the cover properly?

    I am sure better devices may become available with time. However, I've wanted this device for years. And have been disappointed with the iCade/8Bitty compatibility.
