Default Anyone who uses Joystick-It?

Just saw this being sold in a local shop earlier, and i was wondering if anyone has some good things to say about it before i buy them.

I googled and found this... http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e75a/

Anyone able to use this yet?

Forgot to mention there are 2 sizes, one for iphone and one for ipads. Nothing for ipad mini, but i think either should work fine.

Looking at the video on the link above, this maybe perfect for static vstick controls.

I already have a Gameloft Duo Gamer Joystick, use my iphone as a joystick using joypad, and am in the process of buying an icade core. How many freakin' joysticks must I have? Haha

Sigh, some say Dead Trigger is a Tech Demo, but trust me, joysticks on ios are all tech demos. But the joystick you mentioned, does look cool.

Honestly im a little jealous of your ios setups they look so friggin cool.

Im pretty sure i could go to the city before the week ends so thatll be my chance to buy the joystick-its. I imagine it could be perfect with games with static vsticks, but imvery interested to see how it'd do with dynamic vsticks.

Hey! Don't buy it...it barely holds. Unless my thumb is just too strong for it...it just kept popping off for me. Anybody get it to actually stick for more than 10 seconds of gaming?

If that local shop you're referring to is CD-* King, I bought the stick for the iPhone. Looks like it's the same one sold by thinkgeek.

You have to maintain a certain control over the pressure you apply to it, too much and it pops off easy just like frasermorgan said. Not really easy to do with fighting games.

And when applying pressure, the edges (padded with foam) have to touch the screen in order to register a touch - it's a hit or miss sometimes for me, maybe it's something you get used to doing but I don't want to spend time doing that.

It doesn't work for games with dynamic virtual Dpads, only for fixed dpads.

How much is it there? I saw it but wasnt able to check for the price.

I might try buying one to see how it fares. As for the popping off, i can be gentle. LOL!

There you go EP, looks like you got your answers, even though they do seem to come out of an adult movie. But let us know. And how goes this compare to the fling joystick, anyone?
