After looking at the pictures and reading the description, it did not seem to me that this accessory could be very effective. However, I found it actually worked pretty well most of the time. The design puts the joystick in a clever double-spiral spring that will always return to center if you pick up your thumb. Attached to the joystick/spring are a couple of suction cups which hold it to the surface of your iPad. The entire mechanism is made of plastic, but it does come with a one-year warranty. I do see what may be the beginning of a stress fracture where one of the springs join the frame.

This joystick is only useful with games that have a virtual D-pad as a control. In the iPad universe of games, that is a fairly small percentage. Most of them are shooters, sports or role-playing. Many are ports from other platforms where a D-pad is the norm. Logitech has posted a partial list of compatible games. I've included that list at the end of this review.

I already had a couple of games on the list and was able to try it out as soon as I found the time. I found I liked using the Logitech Joystick for iPad and iPad2 more than just playing on the surface of the iPad. I did not have the problem of my thumb wandering off the control surface and I liked having the tactile feedback of actually moving something to control a character.

It's critical to center the joystick in the virtual D-pad. This may be a problem if the D-pad is too close to the edge of the screen. In at least one game, I had the suction cups at the very edge of the glass; another sixteenth of an inch and they would not have stuck.

I have been a gamer since the days of Pong so I prefer tactile controls. Having recently picked up a tablet and having read reviews for the Modern Combat series, my search was on for a simple, inexpensive, and on the go controller.

I picked this D pad up along with Second Shells version. Both pads arrived today and I immediately bought Modern Combat 3 and tried out both pads.

Each pad has its merits and downfalls and both pads worked fine and did what they said they would.

The Logitech pad is larger and has larger suction cups (although both pads stuck very well), it has more resistance when moving the D pad button around, and the D pad button re-centers more quickly and accurately than the Second Shells version. The Logitech pad comes with a pouch.

The Second Shells pad is smaller, has less resistance when moving the D pad button, and centers slightly slower than Logitech's version. The Second Shell's version comes with two awesome buttons as well.

Besides the extra pack ins with each pad, the major difference between the pads is the "springs". On the Logitech pad, they are rigid plastic, on the Second Shell's pad they are rubber. It appears that the rigid plastic springs of the Logitech's pad would break more easily but because they are more rigid, they feel more like you are moving an analog stick and they re-center more quickly and accurately than the Second Shells pad.

I think it is best to pick up both brands at the same time, as I did, to get the best of both worlds - 2 D pads for games with dual on screen D pads, two degrees of resistance and re-centering, 2 buttons, and a pouch.

First, the product is pretty much constructed of cheap, cheap materials. I would not expect a long lifespan before the "spring" either breaks or loses its spring.

Second, while it does keep your thumb/finger reminded of where on the screen the joystick interface is, I found that for it to be really effective I had to pretty frequently pick up my thumb and put it back down. Just moving it in the other direction didn't really seem to always do the trick. Often I found movement in the game to be proceeding in the opposite direction of what I thought I was guiding it to do with the joystick.

Three, the suction cups do keep it pretty well in place ... the only real feature that I found to live up to my expectations.

At the price listed as I write this review, I consider this little gadget to be totally not worth it. I doubt there is a buck of actual materials present. Frankly, I had expected a device that was going to interface through the USB port to control software's joystick interface, not a cheaply made mechanical gadget with poor prospects for holding up to many hours of use.

Like I said, it's not the best thing in the world, but it's something. Makes gaming a little easier, depending on the game.

This item is too big to be used properly with an iPad mini. It DOES work, however it is difficult to mount without obscuring too much of the screen.

Functionality-wise I found it to be OK, but not great. It functioned properly but sometimes stopped begin recognized for a few seconds which leads to negative consequences while gaming sadly.
