Controllers for your smartphone: testing the best gamepads for Android and iOS
Handheld gaming has come a long way since the days of the Game Boy and Game Gear. Many of us moved from plastic cartridges and link cables to smartphones with console-level graphics and five-point multi-touch. But even with games like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja that make excellent use of the ever-expanding real estate of today’s HD smartphones, it’s hard not to feel like we’ve taken a step backward as we strain to look past our own fingers in titles like Minecraft and Zenonia. Some games are just more fun with real analog sticks and a full gamut of triggers and buttons.
