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!

      Noticeable latency with L and R buttons

      There is a definite and annoying latency when using the gaming controller.

For example when controlling the flippers in Zen PInball there is a definite lag in responsiveness. Don't have this problem with the Siri Controller.
