Snap-on case expands battery, adds physical controls to iPhone 5, 5S
We here at the MacNN testing labs have thought for some time that the iOS ecosystem is ideal for resurrecting old franchises with one notable exception -- controls. Old-school gaming had either a control pad or keyboard and mouse in mind, and neither translate well to a small touchscreen. Apple is evidently aware of this situation, and with iOS 7, comes native OS support for a "Made For i" specified controller. Amongst the first wave of these controllers is the Logitech PowerShell controller and battery combination, and MacNN has played with it for a while now. Check to see what we thought about the PowerShell, the first in a new class of peripheral.
