To make your peripheral work you have to connect it to the iPhone’s dock. According to the designer, support for the iControlPad is already built in to most of the game emulators, and they are sending out more units to try to get more universal support. The device will have to get around one problem though; the SDK does not allow unprejudiced access to the dock connector.
The device as of now is in its prototype stage. They promise that the final version of the unit will be “much more sleek and fitting”.
It’s indirect concurrent for PSP but owner feels better.
