    Gamevice, a company that makes a Made for iPhone gaming controller for iOS devices, today announced that it has partnered with Sphero and DJI to allow the Gamevice peripheral to control the Sphero SPRK+ robot and the DJI Spark drone.

    When the Gamevice for iPhone or iPad is used with the DJI Spark app, the Spark drone can be controlled using the physical buttons of the Gamevice, which the company says offers improved precision, control, and ergonomics.

    DJI does offer its own Spark remote controller, but it is not included in the purchase price and costs an additional $119. At $100, the Gamevice controller is more affordable and it also works with a wide range of iOS games.
    As for the SPRK+, it's normally controlled via an on-screen joystick using the Sphero app with no physical control option, so the Gamevice is a great addition for those who would rather have access to controller-style input methods.

    Gamevice offers several different controller options for a wide range of iOS devices on its website. Prices for iOS devices start at $99.95.

    The better option for Spark owners would be if the DJI Spark remote supported games... You will still have an extremely limited Wifi range when flying the Spark since this controller doesn't have antennae.

    Does this mean Sprk+ should work with all mfi controllers? I can’t get it to work with my Nimbus...

    Don't think so. Seems specific to Gamevice.

    Actually... it turns out it does work with mfi devices... for those who care!

    That said, iPhone tilt control is a lot better...
