    Is there any decent cheap controller for the ipad pro? I read couple years ago that they added support has anyone tried one?

    I have a hard time using a onscreen joystick as my thumb gets hurt

    Only one correct answer IMHO: the Steelseries Nimbus.

    Close to Xbox or PS controller in quality and supported by quite a few games.

    I have the Steelseries Nimbus and really like it. If you can wait a bit the CEO of Steelseries said they will have an update to the Nimbus with L3/R3 support. Which gives it more flexibility similar to Xbox and PS4 controllers.

    I would probably wait until Apple officially announces Apple Arcade. Who knows, maybe Apple will also create their own controller at that time as well.

    I wish they would release an updated game vice controller. Considering iPads are on like a 2 year life cycle. I think it is a great concept.

    Many people have reported that the joysticks on the Nimbus breaks after a few months or so. :confused:

    Edit: Actually, it breaks on both controllers. :eek:
