I've gotten very used to the (frankly outstanding) quality of 8 ball as my benchmark for iOS pool. This is just nowhere near it, in terms of the controls. For a ball game / pool sim, IMO the physics are deeply unsatisfying. There's no sense of contact, or of friction, or of weight. The drag / stop looks wrong (balls dribble on way too long) and the cuing action is, again IMO, a mess. And no spin (!) I can't get past playing the first couple of games - it's like fingernails scraping on a blackboard. Good luck to them that enjoys it!
