I got three bluetooth joysticks for my hdmi tv - icade core, Gameloft Duo Gamer, and iphone 4 with joypad app.

Why not one more. Is this only for jailbroken ios devices? Will any game be able to use playstation joysticks? Will it be compatible with icade?

You have to be jailbroken, analog support is coming for icontrolpad with this update but not sure if ps3 controller will have it. I assume it will as they have it working with icontrolpad. Which means you will be able to map the buttons to any game that uses dpads ,analogs and buttons. It's going to be a game changer, mc4 with real buttons... Yes Please

Edit- not sure about icade?

Blutrol adds support for duo gamer as well with this update.

Duo gamer support? Wowzers, I gotta do some research on this one. Might actually be a good reason to jailbreak. Wish we could do all this stuff without jailbreaking though.

Blutrol's the one that lets you map your own control in games isn't it? What's the PS3 controller support like?

Hi, today I bought Blutrol 3.0 but I have a big problem: when I start a game (for example Asphalt 7, League of Evil 1 and 2, but I have this problem with all of my games) a have a big lag with touchscreen and, in game, with the Sixaxis controller. In fact when I press any button the input arrives to my iPad (3rd Generation, iOs 6.1.2) with a significant delay, almost 6-7 seconds, and obviously I can't play 'cause this delay doesn't let me press keys correctly. Anyone has a suggestion? Thanks for the answer

Anyone else having those lag problems? That would definitely kill it for me (anyone). I've got an iPad 2, so if anyone has experience with trying it on one of those, that would be most appreciated.

So far I've only had problems when trying to play complex games like mc4. Games like sonic, earthworm jim, metal slug, final fight, streetfighter x tekken ect run flawlessly and the analog is super responsive. Probably needs another update

How do we map controls for games like gta vice city which has separate controls for on foot and driving? Blutrol only seems to allow one screenshot & one controller configuration per game.
