I really hope other developers add iCade support. Great device. So much fun playing iPad games with a decent hardware controller.
Excellent, great vid. Can I ask is it a lot of work to add icade support? I too am hoping that it becomes almost standard to add icade support to games that suit it but if its a lot of work and obviously there are very few icade owners I wonder if most devs may think it a waste of their time. What the icade needs to really take off is to make it into apple stores!

I didn't write the code myself (I'm the designer/muso on the project), but I believe it was a reasonably easy thing to do—hours of work, not days.

For developers looking to add support, this might help:
https://github.com/scarnie/iCade-iOS

Some games may not be suitable to the iCade, so changing your controls to apply might take a lot longer than actually implementing the input. We were pretty lucky in our case... Sideways has a very similar control mode ("Buttons), so it was just a matter of hooking that up.



Edit: And another video...

Absolutely - No Gravity looks really nice with the iCade.

This has now been released! iControlPad should also be supported in iCade emulation mode. We have a couple of iControlPads on the way, so we should be able to test iControlPad support very soon (and if its not as good as it could be, well update to support it better).
