Best General iPad Controller in UK?

I know there's been a lot of controllers thrown out there recently, but is there one that is useable for the majority of games?

Like Her Story? Try Contradiction for iPad!

A few favourites: Contradiction. Desktop Dungeons. Til Morning's Light. Knights of Pen & Paper (1+2). Drylands. Paint it Back.

Thanks for the link, happy to help :P

For the iPad, the most important question is: Do you want the Gamevice?
The Gamevice is by far the best iPad controller you can get. But it ONLY works with the iPad you buy it for. You have to pick between Air or Mini when you buy it, and theres no guarantee it'll work with upcoming iPad revisions. It's the best controller, but it's expensive, and it isn't very future-proof.

The Gamevice is my favorite iPad controller, and the one I use personally. But if you choose to exclude the Gamevice, your best options are the SteelSeries Nimbus or the PXN Speedy. The Nimbus is the best, but some people really don't like the analog stick layout, and would be happier with the Speedy.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
