I've been using the Kishi for PS4 and Xbox One streaming. It works great.
Do you use it with a case on your phone? I’m interested in one of these but would want to keep my case on the phone in case of drops...

The Controller looks impressive.. Price is TOO High "It's a game controller FFS" been saying this since 2014!
Their purchasing model SUCKS... only can buy from the App?? Ridiculous.. infact it looks a lot like a marketing SCAM..
If you do download the App, its say SOLD OUT (3000 units) .. join the queue,, im currently sitting at over 10,000th.. Yeh right..Ok.. sure...oh yeh theres also a cryptic masonic icon in the top right of the App which allows you to input some SECRET code to instantly buy one... OK sure ..right...Bye.

$100? Who is seriously that into iOS gaming that they would spend $100 bucks on a controller?
No-One.. they have been failing since 2014 when the 1st MFi Controller was released at $100..which you can now pick up on fleabay for $5....retail price for ALL controllers should be $49 at the most.

Just got mine last night and started playing with it. It works and feels great, honestly. My only complaint right now is that the triggers and bumpers don't really work for CoD Mobile. Reached out to them to find out if I'm doing something wrong and haven't gotten a response yet.
