While touchscreen controls are great for playing some games, there are games out there in which gamers are probably wishing for a physical controller, such as fighting games and first-person-shooters just to name a few. While there are physical controllers already available in the market, the PhoneJoy Play is hoping that perhaps you might prefer their solution – after all not only do they claim to be compatible with both iOS and Android, but due to its collapsible nature, it can be folded up and put into your pocket and at the same time will play nice with devices in a variety of different sizes, tablets included! Doesn’t sound too bad, does it?


The PhoneJoy Play unsurprisingly pairs with your device via Bluetooth and there will be an app for both iOS and Android that will help you set it up and look for compatible games. However if there are games you want to play with the PhoneJoy Play that aren’t supported, the controller can be configured to match touchscreen controls, although in the case of iOS, you will need to jailbreak your device in order to do so. At the moment the PhoneJoy Play is a Kickstarter project and a minimum pledge of $50 is required to guarantee you the device upon successful funding, so if you’d like to know more about it or perhaps pledge your donation, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
