"It's no secret that mobile gaming has become ever-present in today's pop culture," commented Andrew Truong of Kanex. "While mobile gaming has many advantages to console or PC gaming, it falls short when it comes to the level of control one can expect – until now that is. Inspired by traditional console controllers, the GoPlay SideKick brings the console gaming experience to your iOS devices."
Hundreds of Games to Choose From
With a growing number of high-quality controller-compatible games on the App store, the Kanex GoPlay SideKick is the best gaming accessory for your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. MFi certified and specifically made for iOS, this little controller makes the most out of your gaming experience. It connects wirelessly to your device and works with any controller-supported game on the App store.
With a layout inspired by traditional console controllers, Kanex GoPlay offers a more refined level of control than your touchscreen. Featuring pressure-sensitive buttons, dual analog joysticks, trigger buttons and a D-pad, you'll enjoy precision control for your favorite mobile games.
Boasting a handy compact design, Kanex GoPlay SideKick's innovative, patent pending protective clamshell case has an integrated stand to prop up your iPhone for the best view during game play. When not in use, this portable device effortlessly fits in your pocket or bag. The convenient rechargeable battery uses your iPhone's Lightning cable to power up. A single charge provides up to 20 hours of gameplay.
