I dont really agree with auto-fire just being for newbies, or making things easy. It depends how youre using it. Remember auto-aim only activates if you take your finger off the aiming stick. If you just leave your finger off the aiming stick the whole time and let it fire for you, then sure it does make things easier. However I dont think thats the way its intended to be used. Rather its intended just to compensate for one of the disadvantages of using touch controls compared to a controller, which is that you have to let go of the aiming stick to hit a button, like the bomb button. With a controller you dont need to stop firing to release a bomb because you just use a trigger, which doesn't require taking your thumb off the stick. With touch controls you need to let go of the aiming stick to hit the bomb button. Since the main time youd ever use a bomb is if youre in a tight spot, thats the worst time to have to stop firing, so auto-aim compensates for that by firing automatically while you hit the button. If you only use auto-fire when hitting the bomb button and keep your finger on the aim stick the rest of the time, then it doesnt offer any real advantage over using a controller without auto-aim. As evidence that this is the intended purpose of auto-fire, Ill point out that when you use a controller, the auto-fire option is disabled. If the developers were just trying to dumb down the iOS version they would have let controller users have auto-fire too. But its clearly just there to help make touch controls more comparable to controllers.
