A new jailbreak tweak called Controllers for All allows users to play iPhone and iPad games with the PlayStation 3's Dual Shock 3 controller, via Bluetooth. The tweak supports all games that have native iOS 7 controller support and when used with a Lightning Digital AV Adapter, users can play iOS games, with a wireless controller, on a television.


From our sister-site TouchArcade:

If you're into the whole jailbreaking scene, this seems like a must-have tweak. The games I've played with my actual legit iOS 7 controllers have been really awesome, and I can only imagine how much better the whole experience would be with an actual amazingly high quality controller like the PS3 controller.

Also, amusingly enough, you could pick up the PS3 controller from Amazon, jailbreak your device, and drop two bucks on Controllers for All, and spend less than half of what a "real" iOS 7 controller would cost you for what I imagine to be a substantially better overall experience.

Controllers for All is a $1.99 download from Cydia's ModMyi repo.

Fantastic. Could be the thing that makes me jailbreak my phone.

I would love for Apple to build in native support for this, similarly to how it just works on the Mac. On the one hand, it would undermine the MFI controller program, but on the other it would provide iOS devices with a readily available, high-quality games controller.

I think enhancing gaming on iOS is better for Apple and it's customers than insisting on proprietary peripherals with expensive MFI licenses.

I think insisting on buying and carrying around peripherals to get the full, enhanced experience would harm iOS. Apple would sooner adopt a stylus *shudder*

There are other devices that play games with controllers. The iPhone is brilliant in part because it doesn't need one, and the best games on iOS wouldn't be improved in the least by controllers.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (and the other ones for that matter) certainly would be

This should be an official update to iOS. "Now you can hook up any Bluetooth controller to your iOS device". Boom! (btw, hooking up a PS4 controller would be even cooler — that controller is just perfect, imho).

Apple won't do it since they have a huge-ass ego. They will make their own $#***¥ version. Which only works with their product alone, not as well designed and cost 2X more. Because they are :apple:
