Rather than feel the wrath of Apple with unauthorized uses of the company’s proprietary technologies, like what accessories maker Hypermac is experiencing, iControlPad is dropping support for using the dock connector to connect the iPhone into its gaming controller and is opting instead to use Bluetooth as a means to connect the iOS device to the hardware controls, which will make it easier for game play.
The company does need help in getting Bluetooth to work, so if you’d like to assist in the development efforts, you can head on over to the official forums to lend a hand. The company did also indicate that by using Bluetooth technology, the game controller will also be compatible with Android-based smartphones.
