      Smooth as butter

      I'm really glad gamevice decided to use the lightning port as opposed to bluetooth to connect to my Ipad Mini. Controls are as smooth as Steph Curry's shooting I'm really glad gamevice decided to use the lightning port as opposed to bluetooth to connect to my Ipad Mini. Controls are as smooth as Steph Curry's shooting while playing NBA 2k. Highly recommended!

Finally, I love that Gamevice has an app that lists which games work with the controller and which buttons do what for each game. Definitely considering buying one for my iPhone!

      Brilliant design, a little bulky to bag

      I was somehow led to believe that the middle part folded up when the iPad mini wasn't inserted in order to save space, but that is not the case here. It's a thi I was somehow led to believe that the middle part folded up when the iPad mini wasn't inserted in order to save space, but that is not the case here. It's a thick elastic rubber flange between the controllers and it won't bend easily. However, it's not bad and I can adapt. But carry around your iPad mini with this device connected, in your hand and in public, and people will look. They don't know what they are seeing at first, but then they suddenly get it and think that this is something incredible. You know, most game controllers put your hands close together and this causes your hands to hold them with your thumbs at about 30 degrees. But with the Gamevice on an iPad mini your hands and arms should be straight ahead, which means directional movements with the thumbsticks should be more accurate and feel more comfortable. The sticks and buttons feel like the same quality as Xbox One controllers (non-Elite), which is a good sign for quality. The whole kit feels rugged and durable and well designed. The controllers double the weight of the iPad mini, so altogether it's around 600 grams or roughly one-and-a-half pounds. I didn't feel like holding the whole thing up at arm's length very often, so resting on a table, arm rest, or folded legs usually does the trick. Having said that, being able to hold an iPad mini with good hand grips is a whole new -- and I think superior -- experience. This device has "width stabilizers" rubber sliders to compensate for the millimetre difference between iPad mini 4 and its predecessors. The right controller has a slightly firmer hold of the iPad mini than the left one. This is because the right side has the lightning connector for added strength. I don't find that to be a problem or a weakness. It is just something that is noticeable. I am comfortable holding the whole rig from left controller.
