Decent controller for iPad?

I know there's a controller coming this fall/winter but wondered what if anything is out there now that's decent. I have a rig for pinball that works great but I avoid most all the fps and similar games on iPad no since they just dont work well for me without a controller.

IMO, that's great advise at the moment! It's right around the corner here!

I really like the description & look of the iControlPad2, which has been delayed many times. If it doesn't release in the next 6 months... I will get the - Bladepad.

What about the 8-bitty? I just ordered one last night.

Planning to use it with the 30pin to HDMI adapter (apple tv has a delay on my slow wifi).

Hopefully a lot of games are compatible with it.

All iCade Games are compatible, but many of them will have awkward button layouts. Some games will have you shooting or jumping with the start button because they were designed with the other iCade devices in mind.
