Getting tired of playing games with the controls on your iPhone? There's not an app for that, but there is a new hardware add-on that fits the bill nicely.
The hardware is from MOGA, and it wraps around your iPhone, offering hardware buttons for easy control of games. The device is called the MOGA Ace Controller, and it's designed for the iPhone 5 series of phones, and the fifth-generation iPod touch. The controller is attached through the Lightning connector and provides dual analog sticks, action buttons, a d-pad, a headphone jack and L1/R1 and L2/R2 buttons.
The controller can also charge an iOS device while the controller is plugged in. Several games are slated to run with the device, including Dirt Road Trucker 3D, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Arma Tactics, Flight Theory Flight Simulator and several more.
The MOGA Ace is available from the MOGA website, and will be in Apple retail stores on Wednesday. It sells for US$99.00. There's a not-completely thrilled review of the MOGA at the TouchArcade website.
Editor's Note: TUAW has reached out to MOGA for a review unit, but we have not received one yet. When we do, we'll post our review.
