I think I borderline fetishise input devices. There used to be so much variety in the world, when it came to gamepads and joysticks. And then, the Playstation happened, and every PC gamepad maker converged on that. And then the XBox 360 happened, and now the best PC gamepad is the 360 gamepad. And god help you, if you want a good joystick that isn't a $400 hardcore sim joystick. Sam Steele 17 Jul 2016 +Michael Vaughan it's nice, definitely a huge improvement over the crappy Moga I got for free ages ago. The blinking LEDs are a little annoying and it doesn't have force feedback, but it's comfortable and works great with Android. Haven't tried pairing it with Mac OS / Windows yet, I'll try that soon. I'm looking forward to the new Microsoft bluetooth controllers, but those don't ship until September so I bought this to hold me over until then 🙂 Not sure whether those will even work with Android, or if they'll be Windows-only.
