    Not Perfect, but Adds a New Dimension to iPhone Gaming

    • Written by from Corsicana

    First I'll get the bad out of the way: I have had to hit my reset button a few times. The controller dies every so often. Also the plates that adapt it for the different phones sometimes fall out. It's a little shaky. Other than that, Its a great device. I wanted to use it in conjunction with a lightning extension cable and the AV adapter so that I could have HDMI out and use the controller, but the iPhone doesn't recognize the MOGA when it is daisy-chained through a AV connector. GyroTroller is a great game that lets you fully map and customize the buttons and their sensitivity while allowing rotation and translation along all three axis. Dead Trigger 2 uses the joysticks but I don't think it uses all the buttons. I just with that it was bluetooth, or had an HDMI output.

    Limited by game support but still great

    • Written by from WEYBRIDGE

    When apps started announcing controller support I assumed they would all work on the new controller. They don't and that's annoying. The price is not cheap but you get the battery and you have to factor in the accelerated development cycle. It's only competition is a device with half the buttons for the same price so it doesn't seem excessive in that regard. People also talked about build quality. When you first handle it, it does feel loose but when I locked my iPod Touch in, it felt solid. Sure, it feel plasticky but it's light - just what you want for extended mobile gaming. When you actually play the supported games you understand what you paid for. Galaxy on Fire 2 is worthy of any handheld console and plays like a dream. Oh and it was free. Mine still works fine and I'm enjoying every minute. If you can afford it, get it - otherwise you're missing out and more games will come in time.

    Great Controller for iphone

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Works great on games like dead trigger2,Bastion,Oceanhorn , just plug and play , no setup There are around 50 games that work for the propriartry controller as of launch and more to follow, the 3 above being the best so far in my opinion.
    I to experienced the controller being dead after several Hours of use, however reading through the documentation there is a reset hole on the back,pressing that with a toothpick fixed the problem, hence the 4 star review not 5.
    Overall works great had no problems with it.

    If it stops working after the first day, just push the reset button......

    • Written by from Mount Prospect

    So I just got my controller in, and I really like the way the buttons feel and love the dual analog sticks and battery boost. It was fun to play Dead Trigger with a real controller, and as the library of supported games grow, it'll truly be a mobile gamers dream.

    That being said, my controller wouldn't turn back on after the first day, I thought it was my charger. For some reason, all you have to do, if it stops working is hold down the reset button on the back for a few seconds. Hope that helps. I know the 1st reviewer said his stopped working as well, and I was about to pack mine up to return it until I saw the reset button.
