Have you ever wish to have a joystick on your iPad while you are playing many iOS games with virtual on-screen control pad? I received an interesting gadget from focalprice.com which adds a physical joystick to your tablet — JOYSTICK-IT iPad Arcade Stick.
Read on for my review and giveaway!
With solid milled aluminum construction, the little gadget has more weight than I thought and don’t feel cheap. You simply adhere the suction-cup at the middle of the on-screen control pad and you are ready to go. It’s stick-and-play!
Here is the demo video I took while playing AirAttach HD on iPad using iPad Arcade Joystick:
Please ignore my lame skill. I just want to show you that the little joystick works and the small suction-cup stick on screen very well.
Did I tell you that the iPad arcade stick works for Android tablets too? In fact, it works on any device which feature a capacitive touchscreen.
My two cents
Personally, I think the iPad Arcade Stick is a little too tall that I don’t feel ease and easy to control the direction. Maybe it takes some time and training. I’m not a gamer, anyway.
Where to buy?
