The GameKlip attaches your Android phone to a DualShock3 controller, normally used for the PlayStation3. This allows you to use a real controller to play your games on your smartphone. It opens the Android platform up to more than just "casual" gaming with touch screen controls, and really gives you a full console experience at a fraction of the cost.
Touch controls work for some games, but as I'm sure most of you have experienced, controlling anything more complex than an angry feathered creature is next to impossible. After hours of trying to play Grand Theft Auto III with virtual on-screen joysticks, I went looking for a better answer.
After flipping through pages of cheap gimmicky Bluetooth controllers, I stumbled across the Sony Dualshock3 controller and the Sixaxis app. The Sixaxis app allows many Android phones to connect to a Playstation 3 controller to give native analog input and emulate touch and hardware controls. I thought I had found my answer, but where do I put my phone if the controller is in my hands? Enter the GameKlip™.
The GameKlip™ is my solution to the Android gaming problem. The GameKlip™ is made out of a special, incredibly strong, blend of premium plastic, similar to the materials used in bullet proof glass. It is flexible enough to easily snap onto your DualShock3 controller but strong enough to provide a solid mounting platform for your Android phone.
Is my phone compatible with a Dualshock3 controller?
The GameKlip™ only mounts your Android device on your controller. There is no connectivity software included with the GameKlip™. To pair my controller with my phone wirelessly, I used an app called "Sixaxis Controller," by Dancing Pixel Studios, available on Google Play. Unfortunately not all phones are compatible and root access is currently required for wireless connections. Make sure to try the "Sixaxis Compatibility Checker" to see if your phone is compatible before buying. If the compatibility checker says you don't have root access, for a wireless connection, see below.
What if I don't have root or don't know if I do? Will I still be able to use a GameKlip™?
Yes! The Galaxy SIII, as well as many other devices, supports a wired connection to a Dualshock 3 controller right out of the box, no special apps required! All that' you'll need is the proprietary, one of a kind, cable included with the GameKlip™. If you don't have root, or would rather play with a wired connection, simply plug the included cable into your phone and the controller. The cable is short, light, and doesn't hinder your gaming at all. Not all phones support wired connections, for more information check out the compatibility guide.
