I have a second gen iPad pro 12.9 and I can't decide between the Nimbus or gamevice controllers. Is there anyone with any experience with one or both that can assist me with making a choice?

I have the Nimbus. I have used it with my Apple TV 4th Gen and with my iPad Mini 4, and and iPad Pro 12..9 Gen 1. Worked absolutely fine with all devices. Now, the apps on the other hand have different levels of support. So be prepared for some apps to work better than others with a controller. And not all apps support a pad at all.

Another vote here for the SteelSeries Nimbus. It's fantastic. I use it with my Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone.
