Just a little update. I've been busy lately and haven't done much work on it since my last post. I'm now resuming to work on the project. I hope to have it ready for a release before X'mas. This is only my best estimate based on the current situation.

PS. As I've previously mentioned, I was planning to provide mapping of screen touches to controller buttons. However, there is an app in Cydia named blutrol which provides the exact functionality. I'm now thinking of dropping screen touches mapping in my app. You can use both of my app together with blutrol to map screen touches to buttons, so that the PS3 controller can work for most games.

Regardless, this is a fantastic idea for an app that would make a lot of games (and this is a fighting game fan saying this) a lot more playable.

Guys, sorry for lack of updates. I wasn't able to work on the app for the past couple of months due to some unforeseen circumstances. I've just resumed working on it again recently. ATM, there is a compatibility issue with iOS 6 which will need to be resolved first. I don't have an ETA yet. I'll try to post back if I've more info. Thanks all for your understanding.

Does it work on IOS 5? If not, why not make it work first before fixing the compatibility issue with IOS 6.

For the work that you've done, there might be another compatibility issue with IOS 6.1.1.
