    Hey, first post here.

    Does anyone know anything on the progress of the iControlPad?

    Apparently there are some jb apps that support it. Seems like a good idea, I dunno.

    Good idea---but looks very poorly implemented IMO

    They should have made the device so that some of it covers the dead iPhone space... Thus making the device a helluva lot shorter. Not to mention the buttons are very oddly laid out and the D-pad would be awkward in the upper left corner

    So yeah, it's a good idea, well, a GREAT idea. But this one is just poorly implemented IMHO

    Haha. Wow, blunt. But I agree.

    iPhone gaming is about finding new control schemes and making old ones better. Not strapping on the same stuff. I'd never buy anything like this unless Apple made a better solution.

    I think it'd be great for emulators, but that's about it. Although sometimes I really REALLY would prefer some sort of gamepad for some games. Especially when you get really into some and you wanna do some button mashing lol
