Hello, I am wondering, is there any controller out there to play iPad game. I use a ps3 controller for playing my PC game. So I was thinking about is there any that kind of accessories for play iPad game. I really don't like the system to play using touch. Rather I am a pressing the button kind of guy. So any suggestion and opinion is welcome.

Joypad (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/joypad-game-controller/id517378526?mt=8) app that turns your iPhone into a controller

Really appreciate your help. Very useful information. By the way I don't have any iPhone. So the joypad game controller is no good for me. But jCade 8-bitty and iControl pad really look interesting. Thanks. :D

No problem. It would be nice if Apple would just release one and make devs use the API so all games would support it.

No. Just release the API and let the devs make one themselves. Apple's history at game controllers is terrible.

I'd be okay with that. I'd just like one that I know will work across all iOS games.

No, that's not the Apple "way". Unless, they charge everyone $149.99-$199.99 a pop, THEN it would be.
