This is what gaming on iOS has been missing, and I'm glad to bring it to the TV next!

      Nimbus vs. Stratus?

      At instant, I am in loved with this product, since I am still waiting the new AppleTV arrive, I have it hook up to iPhone 6 with HDMI cable, playing Asphalt 8, At instant, I am in loved with this product, since I am still waiting the new AppleTV arrive, I have it hook up to iPhone 6 with HDMI cable, playing Asphalt 8, it took my 7 yr old son couple crashes to get use to the game pad. He has a tiny hand but all buttons are still reachable for him. It is responsive, but the analogue joystick is a bit hard, doesn't have the smoothness like PS4's, I have trouble playing Deadtrigger2 (Aim and shoot is clunky), but I guess software can solve this problem if they willing to solve it. Compare to Stratus (the small version) Nimbus is better, I don't have lag problem while Stratus is not responsive, sometime ( maybe it's BT2.1 vs 4.0) It's a good investment if you are serious about iOS gaming.

It definitely makes gaming on the iphone an enjoyable experience (vs a task). Looking forward to more and more games having this controller as an option!

      Not a complete gamepad controller.

      Bought this for 4th generation Apple TV for use with AG Drive. Works fine for that.

I sometimes use Airplay to the AppleTV to run Feral Interactive Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga with our grandson so I thought I'd pair the Nimbus to the ATV and airplay the game. That was not a good experience. Sent information to Feral and they responded as follows: "Steelseries Nimbus controller cannot be fully supported due to it not having the L3 and R3 analog stick clicks that are required for full control in some titles" Not a big deal since I have controllers that do work. Just be aware that it is not a complete controller.

      Be Careful

      This is a nice controller but it is not compatible with a Mac. Works ok with Apple TV but is not a "crossover product" except on a PC. Unfortunately Apple s This is a nice controller but it is not compatible with a Mac. Works ok with Apple TV but is not a "crossover product" except on a PC. Unfortunately Apple sells games like Oceanhorn on the Mac that are not compatible between the platforms so game controllers fit the theme of being incompatible. Should I pay twice for a game that I probably didn't want anyway? Seriously, I called SteelSeries tech support in India and they claim it works just fine with a Mac..... ps. this game needs a controller. Sad choice by Mac to charge customers for a game that is unplayable without a controller.

      Good controller

      Bought it without any real expectations but turned out to be pretty good. It's a lot more satisfying than my on-screen buttons when it comes to playing games.
