      You must own this to game on the AppleTV!

      The gaming on the AppleTV was compelling enough for me to upgrade. The remote is fantastic but it isn't ideal for intensive gaming. My first game was Rayman Adv The gaming on the AppleTV was compelling enough for me to upgrade. The remote is fantastic but it isn't ideal for intensive gaming. My first game was Rayman Adventures. It worked possibly with the remote. Once I paired the Nimbus it took the game to a whole new level! I was able to work on mastering the game and not the controls. This is really mandatory for anybody that wants to seriously game with the new AppleTV. It brings the console experience to Apple!

      Fantastic/Beautiful Pro Gaming Controller!

      Received the controller in the mail today and was pleasantly surprised. The build quality and design far exceeded my expectations. Incredibly easy to connect an Received the controller in the mail today and was pleasantly surprised. The build quality and design far exceeded my expectations. Incredibly easy to connect and use. Responsive and very comfortable to hold. Probably the best controller I've used. Feels so good. $49 really isn't that expensive for an incredibly designed, expensive feeling, easy to use product. For you guys whining about that lack of a charging cable, remember one came with your apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod etc. I'm pretty certain it's not that big of a deal to use that charging cable for a few hours per month to charge your controller. If you are worried because it's not "designed by Apple in California", just buy the thing! It is up to par with apple's design for sure.

      no charger. difficult to control pac-man

      i bought it for pac-man on 4ktv but pac-man won’t turn corners. plus i refuse to buy a lightning connector the controller prices at 50 dollars should come with i bought it for pac-man on 4ktv but pac-man won’t turn corners. plus i refuse to buy a lightning connector the controller prices at 50 dollars should come with it. not happy at all. definitely going back as soon as it stops raining. apple should micro manage what and how things are sold to their customers. this brand would have never gotten 5 dollars from me. my five year old is frustrated and screaming as i type this. perhaps commission sony to make a controller and a few games. apple can definitely kick it up a gear for its customers that prefer them to any other company to supply all their needs. am i asking to much apple.

I tri the game controller has a problem. control sensitivity is distorted, can not be set to ideal sensitivity. gas and Brake control has no sensitivity at all. I tried it on Real Race 3 ... they are testing it a month and it's a cheap cheap product. I do not recommend buying it.

      Works awesome but do your research.

      This controller works perfectly and is very simple to set up. A lot of reviews complain that it doesn’t work with every game. Thing is NOT EVERY GAME SUPPORTS This controller works perfectly and is very simple to set up. A lot of reviews complain that it doesn’t work with every game. Thing is NOT EVERY GAME SUPPORTS A EXTERNAL CONTOLLER! If the game you are wanting to use it for supports a MFI contoller then buy this item. I researched if Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was compatible before I purchased. This item even has an app that has a list of compatible games and there are multiple web sites that list MFI compatible games. Do your research before you buy. Don’t blame the controller for not playing a game that doesn’t support.
