Fling Mini iPhone & iPod Joysticks: Stick-on Joy for Analog Fans

by Lambert Varias

Ten One Design has now released the inevitable follow-up to the Fling stick-on joystick for the iPad, the Fling Mini for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s almost exactly the same as its big brother, which means it has both the pros and cons of the original Fling.

The Fling Mini should provide gamers that classic and dependable analog feel when playing games, but just like the Fling, it also blocks a substantial area of the screen. That may be forgivable for the iPad, but on the iPhone and iPod’s smaller screens this drawback might outweigh the joystick’s benefits for many games.

If you think the trade off is worth it, you can pre-order the Fling Mini at Ten One Design’s online shop – $25 (USD) gets you a pair of joysticks. I wonder if Apple will add a rear touch panel like the one on Sony’s NGP to future iOS devices. That way we can use add-ons like the Fling Mini without blocking the screen.

    “Hi dear, you have crate good article about mini iphone . I am extremely impressed with your article writing skill and article layout. Here is one more company “”, There are a lot of people out that fully understand the benefits of android iphone. I Think The mini version is known as Meizu M8 and it 1st appeared on the Hong Kong marketplace. This smartphone is two-thirds of the size of the typical iPhone. Even if it truly is referred to as mini iPhone, it has no functions like multitouch, 3G, access to the AppStore, iTunes or other Apple media sources.
