Two sticks, four face buttons, a
pair of shoulder paddles and a d-
pad: the formula for a modern
gamepad and the layout of
MOGA's Ace Power controller. It's
a pretty standard assortment of
inputs, but this controller
happens to be the first fully
featured peripheral to support
Apple's new iOS 7 gamepad
The MOGA Ace may have the
normal assortment of buttons
and triggers, but it has one trick
most gamepads can't emulate:
it telescopes . Taken out of the box,
the Ace is hardly longer than an
iPhone 5s, but pulling on either
end stretches the peripheral to
fit your iDevice. The Gamepad's
left side retains enough tension
to hold a device in place on its
Games like Dead Trigger 2 and
Call of Duty: Strike Team always
play better with a proper dual-
stick controller, but what really
impressed us was how easy it was
to start using the accessory.
Apple's lightning connector
serves as the gamepad's only
means of communication with
your device, mitigating the
headache that comes with
syncing most Bluetooth
connected game controllers. The
plug-and-play gamepad is mostly
a joy to use too, with satisfyingly
poppy buttons and capable
control pads. That said, it isn't
perfect: those dual-stick nubs
could use a hair more resistance,
and the controller's R2 and L2
buttons felt a little mushy when
used as triggers in FPS games.
Although the Ace performs
admirably as a gamepad, it does
make using your phone a little

Unlike Logitech's
PowerShell , it's just a little too
thick to comfortably use your
device's touchscreen for much
besides gaming, and its design is
cumbersome enough that you'll
want to undock your Phone
before taking a call. On the other
hand, its larger grip, dual analog
nubs and additional shoulder
buttons make it a more capable
gamepad than its phone-friendly
competitor, and it still charges
your device. At $99, both
gamepads are well priced - but if
you're looking for a more focused
and robust gaming experience,
the MOGA Ace is a solid choice.
