Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The unfortunate thing about the Logitech PowerShell Controller is that it's actually NOT a bad product. The issue is that, at least currently, the support is absolutely appalling. Logitech, this is unfortunately all on you.


The D-Pad:

I slid my iPhone 5s into the PowerShell, and was up and running instantly in Asphalt 8. I immediately noticed my D-Pad wasn't responding well at all, needing a really, REALLY firm push to have it respond and for the car to turn left or right. What is going on here?

The D-Pad, shoulder buttons, and face buttons are analog, but the game is only looking for digital inputs. That means you have to push all the buttons to their analog extremities (i.e. hard!) to have them register. If Asphalt 8 supported analog controls, you'd be able to turn slowly by just gently pressing the D-Pad, and that would be awesome. But you can't..

So Asphalt 8 is basically broken with the PowerShell. What about Bastion? Well, I experienced similar issues. You have to slam the D-Pad in any direction to make your character move around.

Think of it like playing a racing game on your Playstation or XBOX, and having to move the analog stick all the way to the left or to the right for the car to turn at all - to steer 100% lock in that direction. The world's largest dead zone, followed by a digital button press, for you gamers out there. Yuck!

So, Logitech REALLY needs to make clear to the developers how this works. The unfortunate part is that I imagine building in analog support is probably something that requires extra time (vs the on-screen "digital" play method that e.g. Asphalt 8 employs).

Thank you for your feedback! To address your most important concern, the analog buttons and D-Pad are actually a component of the Apple MFi Controller standard set forth by Apple. We are currently working with Apple and game developers to help improve how PowerShell plays, and we expect that these issues will be improved in most major games.

Rarely have I had such a seething hate for a product that I felt the need to share my opinion with the world within 15 minutes of receiving it. I'm an indie developer with an already-completed, minimally-successful platformer game in the App Store. iOS development is not my full time job but I spend much of my time off from my regular job trying to improve my game in hopes of making it big. Tonight however, I tossed my hope and enthusiasm aside and came to a full stop just to stress to you how terrible this product is. It's THAT bad.

I've been excited about finally having the time to add MFi / "Made for iPhone" controller support to my title and have been coding furiously while testing with another manufacturer's Bluetooth controller. After realizing that I'd want my game to behave slightly differently with an attached controller, I ordered the Logitech PowerShell based on little more than blind faith in the brand. As it turns out, this was a pretty big mistake.

As others have noted, the major issue with this controller is that the D-Pad response is absolutely terrible. Many such comments are followed with a reply from someone claiming to be with Logitech support. These replies make vague claims of working with Apple and developers to improve the situation. Unfortunately, I don't believe that any software fix can help with the problem. A key feature of MFi controllers as required by Apple is that even D-Pads must be analog and thus pressure-sensitive. The Logitech controller meets this requirement, at least technically. The problem is that there's an appreciable amount of force required to move the D-Pad off-center in the first place.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
After Apple announced a standardize programming interface and reference designs for iOS device game controllers at last years World Wide Developer's Conference, we had to wait till the Christmas buying season for the first two such controllers to appear: this Logitech Powershell and the MOGA Ace Power. As I didn't want to buy my son a Nintendo 3DS because of the cost of games, I chose to buy the MOGA because it has an extra set of analog sticks and cost the same. So, I dutifully reviewed it, and now Amazon Vine has sent me this Powershell for review so I can compare the two.

First of all, I'm sure that manufacturers will iterate on these designs and we will see better units, but right now we have two contenders.

In the PowerShell's favor is a general sense of more refined design and execution than the MOGA. The mechanism for inserting the iDevice into its cradle is simpler and results in a more sturdy feeling device. Also, the shim provided with the PowerShell to improve the fit for an iPod Touch is a nice piece of fitted rubber, whereas the corresponding piece for the MOGA is a clunky piece of plastic. In general, once your device is in the PowerShell, it feels as if you have one solid unit with a nice rubberized back; in the MOGA, you are constantly reminded of the creaking plastic pieces sliding past each other.

In the MOGA's favor is the previously mentioned analog sticks.
