Dont buy form this seller, i ordered this item as it was described as an actual Ten One Fling product. but what i got was some knock off bootleg that says "joystick" on the box and device. and it works terribly as there is no pad on the bottom....just plastic on your glass tablet screen...not good! total bull! do not order from this seller. will report to amazon as well. very mad about this!

I was excited to try the Fling game controller - there is more and more content for the iPad that benefits from this type of familiar tactile control. On a positive note, the suction cups are effective at holding the Fling in place. Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends, at least for me.

Response was not good - I had difficulty getting the iPad to consistently respond - even with a carefully cleaned screen with no residue of any kind.

To add injury to insult, one of the clips that holds the suction clip broke after about a week of very mild use. This product is intended to be frequently repositioned, removed, and reinstalled - so I was surprised to discover that the plastic is very brittle. It was like the clip just crumbled and the suction cup fell off.

I'm giving the Fling 3/5 stars for innovation and great concept.

This is a neat little item and does attach nicely to an iPad. But, it just doesn't work very well with that many games. Most of the games I want to play with it have no way to adjust the diameter of their virtual controls and aren't already set properly for this accessory... So it just doesn't really work.

The claim that it is compatible with all games that have an onscreen joystick is simply not true. If the touch points for the virtual pad in the game don't line up with the fling it will be a constant struggle with the game not registering your desired movements properly.

If it only worked, but it just doesn't no matter what I tried to do. Because the center of the button actually was in contract with the glass on the Ipad. Tried to put it at the center of the button on the screen with the games I play, but not matter where I place it, it just doesn't want to move the on screen character the direction I want it to go. It either go to the wrong direction or stuck at one direction.

One thing I learned after getting this was that at the end of the day, nothing can replace your fingers response time, and don't waste your money on this junk.

My review is very simple for this item. I was very excited to start playing some games with it however when I received it I quickly learned one major set back. I have ghost armor screen protector for my iPad screen. When I try and use it in games it has a slight stick to it so there is not a smooth motion. It makes playing games impossible. So if you have a ghost armor type screen protector you probably want to steer clear of this product.

On a side note I did try it on an iPad without a screen protector and it worked great!

Great idea, makes gaming much easier. As a child of the joystick era I have not been enjoying iPhone iPad gaming because my hands tend to drift off of the controller area. It works good.

Pros: easy to use, works great, good size, comes with a travel pouch

Cons: During intense game play it sometimes comes loose, and or comes out of contact with hotspot on screen, causing the screen to neutralize controls, not too often and I have realized during slow gaming I recheck security or periodically pause.

This was a great idea, but functionally, it doesn't work very well.

I've used this to try to control an AR Drone on the iPad and the performance is underwhelming. The response is too slow and not sensitive enough. No matter how high I set the sensitivity on the App, precise control is not possible. The control surface on the bottom is about 1/2" in diameter and flat so you have to give it a lot of pressure to make it work. Not sure why they didn't make it with a curved bottom.

I recently went to the apple store and saw this little gaming nugget of joy. When I turned over the box to see the price at 24.95 I know that amazon could beat that. After reading and watching a number of reviews I quickly purchased the Ten One for 9 bucks.

It is a great little additive for your iPad gaming experience. It slides a little but if you play a lot on your iPad its worth the purchase. It's small, easy to put on, and it definitely worth it!

For games that uses a digital onscreen joystick, this iPad joystick works well. You have to align the joystick to digital onscreen joystick when sticking it on the iPad. I tried it in games like Double Dragon and NBA Jams and it does make gameplay easier. But there is a slight inconvience because i own a SNUGG iPad leather case and I have to take off the case to stick on the joystick each time I want to use it with my games.

This is perfect for dedicated gamers but the suction isnt very strong so thts why i put 4 stars instead of 5. But i happen to have a heavy thumb when i play so as long as u dont drag it hard when ur walking forward "in the game" it works good. No scratches tht i have noticed either so thts a plus.
