iControlPad BT Adds Real Gamepad and Buttons to the iPhone

I will readily admit that I like to play games on my iPhone. I also admit that I will steer away from any game that doesn’t use normal touch and gesture control. If I have to use those fake on-screen joysticks I won’t play the game.

A new controller that hooks to any phone via Bluetooth has surfaced called the iControlPad BT that adds physical buttons to the iPhone and other devices. The control layout looks a lot like a mash up between the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers. It has four buttons, two joysticks, and a D-pad.

The phone slips into the controller and is held in place with some adjustable sides. The downside for iPhone users is that it works best with jailbroken devices, but it will work in keyboard mode on the device. The controller supports just about any Android app that supports a PC gamepad. It runs from a battery 1500mAh unit can charges via USB port. Shipments start in February and the complete controller set up is about $75 (USD).
