If you are a fan of the PS4 controller, this will be your iOS controller of choice. Top notch build all the way around.

      Better than the Nimbus

      Having used the Nimbus controller in the Apple Store, and owning this controller for a few days (had to have them get it from the back, stye hadn't even put it Having used the Nimbus controller in the Apple Store, and owning this controller for a few days (had to have them get it from the back, stye hadn't even put it out yet), I can say wth complete confidence that this controller is so much better. The nimbus is significantly fighter than the Ultimate, which to my surprise, is not a good thing. The weight of the Ultimate makes it feel so much better in the hand. The design itself is much cleaner, with the concave menu button. Also, an unsaid spec of the Ultimate is 4.1 Bluetooth, compared to the Nimbus's 4.0. Not to mention having double the battery life. Also, I have smaller hands, about average size for an adult male, and the Nimbus's R1 and L1 buttons (shoulder buttons, for you that don't know) are very uncomfortable to rest your hands on. For games that play with SNES controls (which a lot of newer games emulate), this is not a problem for the Ultimate. And with your hands resting on double sticks and triggers (for shooters), it is just as comfortable as the Nimbus.

      Unparalleled quality

      I've tried a few different MFi and android controllers over the years, and each and every one have had some kind of drawback, and build quality and the general I've tried a few different MFi and android controllers over the years, and each and every one have had some kind of drawback, and build quality and the general feel of most 3rd party controllers have been lacking. This is not the case with the HORIPAD ULTIMATE. This controller has a weight and feel that just exudes quality. It is definitely worthy to be paired with your Apple device of choice. The buttons, d-pad, and other components are all respond perfectly with excellent feedback and feel. A great controller at an excellent price.

After about a month of use, the left trigger began to stick. Called Apple, and they gladly replaced it with a new one Not sure if this is an issue with this controller, but the right trigger is fine. I read other reviews on this and no one has complained of this problem, so I am assuming it is not a common issue.

      One year later, running great

      Had this controller for over a year now and I've been extremely pleased with it. The d-pad tracks properly for retro games. The battery exceeds my expectations Had this controller for over a year now and I've been extremely pleased with it. The d-pad tracks properly for retro games. The battery exceeds my expectations and the weight and feel of the controller are premium. Had been using primarily with my iPhone, but have started using on Mac as well.
