JOYSTICK-IT for iPhone gives you that nostalgic arcade control

This would be great for the ipad or something. The iphone's screen is small as it is and that thing just takes up too much room.

They actually sell a larger sized one specifically for the iPad, but I believe it's price at $30 or something.

Yep, there's one for the iPad, it's called fling. But it is a little more expensive than this.

games that need joysticks and have those controlers on the screen kinda suck for iphone in my opinion. I am not a huge gamer but it would be nice if the black part under the speaker and home button had a touch sensitive spot for game controles along with buttons on top. theres room if you move camara around to other side

Doesn't work at all. Bought it off amazon, it doesn't register movements well. Have to press down in the area you want moved, but then it just ends up coming off the screen. I wouldn't recommend this. Better off getting a "fling" controller; cost a bit more but much better.
