Really works, with many games – Aluminum Alloy Joystick for iPad/iPad 2/iPhone 3G/iPhone 4/Samsung P1000 - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Solid very heavy metal! Suction cup grabs iPad screen very well and stays. Works with almost every game I had that had a D-pad control. Much more natural game play.
Cons:
I wonder if the foam will wear away over time (but at this price, just get another). If the foam did wear away, I could imagine metal would contact screen and scratch, so monitor condition.
Other:
I was tempted to buy the real thing when these joysticks were introduced but they wanted $40! Simple idea, conductive foam plus metal joystick conducts your skin so the touch screen thinks it is your finger.
Bottomline:
Great for iPad games!
