I can't get it to run, it just hangs on the 'connecting' screen...

iPhone 6S/iOS 9.3.1

**ha..

I tried updating to iOS 9.3.2 before deleting it and it wound up working...

Guess the GC fix helped this out?

Tried it on iPad Pro (12.9") and iPhone 6 under iOS 9.3.2 and on iPad Pro (9.7") under iOS 9.3.1. Once there was a little flickering on the connection screens at the very beginning (I didn't register with XBox, no account) but it's working pretty well on those devices. Very recommended!

Yep, it needs GC to run.

I highly recommend this IF you have an MFi controller. If not, i would recommend it still but with a warning that the vstick is a bit too sensitive and may need some getting used to.

There is sensitivity setting option inside the game. I switched it to 50% and so it's okay.

Yeah I moved the sensitivity slider to about 3/4 instead of all the way to the right, and it's a LOT better (which is great since my MFi controller only works with my 5 and my 5 is still in iOS 7...). I'm really enjoying this one so far (just finished the 4th mission).
