Fling Mini Smartphone Joystick

The Fling Mini is a two piece smartphone joystick that’s compatible with tons of different applications for iPhone, iTouch, and Android devices. It was designed by Ten 1 and uses suction cups to stick to your device.
*Suction cup onomatopoeia* I’ve found that in addition to being joysticks, the Fling Mini is a great way to scale buildings. Hey, Spiderman! I found that the spandex really restricts my range of motion, and that scaling buildings completely naked is much easier. *Officer down below pulls out walkie-talkie* Uh, we’ve got a naked high flier on the Willis tower, it doesn’t look like he’s coming down. We’re going to have to bring out the big guns.
 The Fling Mini for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s almost exactly the same as its big brother, which means it has both the pros and cons of the original Fling.The Fling Mini should provide gamers that classic and dependable analog feel when playing games, but just like the Fling, it
 also blocks a substantial area of the screen. That may be forgivable for the iPad, but on the iPhone and iPod’s smaller screens this drawback might outweigh the joystick’s benefits for many games.
Virtual joysticks on your smartphone for games don’t exactly give the best gaming experience. There have been multiple occasions where I have found, in my enthusiasm, my finger having moved to somewhere in the middle of the screen, simply because the lack of feel of a physical joystick threw me off. Thanks to Ten One Design, the same guys who brought you the Fling joystick for the iPad, iPhone and Android users can now enjoy a physical joystick on their smartphone devices now.
If  you’re interested, the accessory will set you back $24.95 for a pack of two and you may now head on down to their 
website and pre-order yours today. Check out thefull press releaseafter the break.
Ten One Design Reveals Fling mini Game Controller at E3 Expo

Montclair, NJ (June 3, 2011) – Ten One Design, creators of the first capacitive touch-screen stylus for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has announced the “mini” version of its revolutionary tactile game controller – Fling mini.

Expanding on the success of the Fling for iPad announced at this year’s CES, the mini controller adheres to any smartphone on top of the directional pad of any applicable game to deliver ultimate control and superb response for full gaming immersion.
Fling mini’s unique spiral design creates actual physical resistance so gamers are assured of greater directional control. It works with any iPhone or iPod touch game with a directional pad, or virtual joystick, including Meteor Blitz, Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Super Mega Worm, Robokill, Blade of Betrayal and Dink Smallwood, to name a few.
Similar to Fling for iPad, to use Fling mini, launch the game of your choice and secure Fling mini’s center control over the game’s directional pad. Then simply place your thumb on the center control to navigate easily through the game.
The translucent and flexible design provides an unrestricted view of all on-screen action. Plus, the suction cups allow simple attachment and detachment for spontaneous gaming sessions.
The included microfiber bag is ideal for on-the-go storage and doubles as the perfect screen cleaning cloth to eliminate unwanted smudges and fingerprints.
