iControlPad for iPhone launched

iControlPad for iPhone launched

A new games controller has landed on the iPhone for titles that are unsuited to the handset's touchscreen control method.

iControlPad adds an array of physical buttons to the largely button-free Apple iPhone and holds the handset a landscape position with solid housing.

At present, it is not officially supported by Apple, which means only those who are willing to jailbreak their iPhones will be able to use it.

Using iControlPad also requires that the gaming software is specifically coded to offer compatibility, but a number of game console emulators are said to possess the requisite capabilities.

The controller, which plugs into the iPhone's synchronisation port, is initially limited to 3,000 units. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
