HASH(0xa070faa4) out of 5 stars Excellent quality! Jan. 26 2015
By Shishimaru - Published on
There are several options out there for MFi Compatible controllers out there, but they come in different forms. I've tried the clip-in type but the weight of the phone always bugged me. I like a more traditional style controller and this one fits the bill perfectly. HORI is a Japanese brand that is well-known for their controllers and peripherals, and it's easy to tell why. This controller is a very nice quality, with an excellent build and materials. The controller feels solid but is not heavy. The finish is smooth and feels amazing in hand. All of the buttons are responsive without being too clicky, just the perfect amount of resistance, especially the should buttons. The analog sticks have resistance but aren't too stiff or loose. The d-pad is a disc type, which I usually don't like too much but this one fits perfectly on my thumb and I've come to really like this one. It's extremely comfortable and accurate.

Set up is a snap, it paired with my phone no problem. I've tried this with a few MFi-compatible games that I already have and have really enjoyed how this controller works with both classic 2D action/arcade games and 3D games. I haven't had any issues using the controller, although sometimes I had to mess with the in-game settings to get it set up properly. Now that I have this controller I see myself picking up some titles that just don't work well with touch screen controls like King of Fighters and platformers. The HORIPAD is a little more expensive than some of the other controllers on the market, but the quality here is equivalent to first party console controllers like the DualShock. Highly recommended!

HASH(0xa070feac) out of 5 stars Great iOS Controller! Feb. 2 2015
By Monkeyodor - Published on
First off, HORI has 30+ years of experience manufacturing quality controllers for video game consoles and this controller is no exception. Works great with MFi games and the Bluetooth connectivity makes it convenient to play anywhere! Also the fact that you don't have to buy batteries is great as you can charge the controller via USB. If you're in the market for a controller for your iOS device, I definitely recommend the the HORIPAD!

HASH(0xa08c3cd8) out of 5 stars which said it had the best D-Pad available for MFi controllers at the time Dec 1 2015

I purchased this after reading its reviews on Afterpad, which said it had the best D-Pad available for MFi controllers at the time. The D-Pad is pretty good - it's a step below the PS4's, but a step or two above the X-Box 360 with Transforming D-Pad, and exponentially better than the standard X-Box 360 controller. The D-Pad, sticks and buttons are accurate/sensitive enough, and don't seem to miss inputs. The controller has a decent weight, and feels very solid. It pairs easily and works with all my iOS devices.

I didn't rate it a 5 because I'm not a fan of the finish (100% smooth plastic), which slips in my hands more than I'd like, and because the D-Pad and buttons (it doesn't have triggers) feel cheaply made, even though they work well and are accurate. It's also too expensive for what it is. An $80 controller it should feel awesome - it doesn't. It feels like a decent $40 controller, definitely a step below an X-Box One of PS4 controller.

Overall I like the controller. It's decent, and based on reviews one of the few currently available MFi controllers with a decent D-Pad, but I'm not happy with the price. I'm currently looking for a second controller. If it were $30-40 I wouldn't have thought twice about buying a second one, but instead I'll be trying others instead of purchasing a second one of these.

HASH(0xa07120a8) out of 5 stars Great, but not worth the hype Aug. 19 2015

The Horipad was heralded as the first true effort of bringing a pro MFI controller to iOS. It's a good controller, but no better than the others on the market. I was most interested in its D-pad, which has been reviewed as the best on any platform; it's just okay.

Testing with Garou: Mark of the Wolves (a classic 2D Dreamcast fighting game), the d pad required VERY deliberate presses to execute moves. This was not the case in the arcades, on the Dreamcast, or even on the Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld. It becomes tiring and frustrating to watch smooth swipes transfer to mis reads or slow movements.

The Mad Catz Micro actually fared better, but neither was good enough for even casual play, so both were returned.

Overall, it's still a solid controller, but the price and hype is not justified. Keep waiting for a true MFI controller, folks.

HASH(0xa07123f0) out of 5 stars Not terrible, but am considering buying something else. Nov. 27 2015

Adequate for my needs. Some shortcomings that have me looking for another controller:
- Mushy rubber dome switches under the triggers and buttons
- Super smooth & shiny finish on the body (abs plastic?) is not to my liking, feeling greasy.
