Best Price-Quality-Usefulness gamepad. – IPEGA PG-9017 Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Controller for iPad / iPhone / Smartphone / Android / iOS PC Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Price, size, form, quick connection, compatibility, batery life...
Cons:
Right joystick doesnt work, Left Joystick and Direction-Cross-Pad share the same key mapping. The "Joystick, Mouse Modes" dont work, only the Keyboard Mode, (I dont test the Mode for iOS because i'm ussing android.
Other:
If the Right Joystick works, this gamepad will be perfect. If you want to exploit totally the gamepad, download the app: Game Keyboard in android market, root your phone, learn how to use it, and enjoy.
Bottomline:
Only works in Keyboard Mode in Android, (and this is totally enough), I have not problem mapping directly the keys in the different emulators that i tested, (N64, PSX, SNES...), the problem starts if you want to use the gamepad for android market games, such as shadowgun, Zenonia, etc...). The answer it's just used the app: Game Keyboard, if you have root acces then you will be able to make the gamepad work in android market games.
