How To Use Your iPhone As a Joystick For Computer

Now as I’m a regular gamer, if I don’t play games for almost two hours straight, I’m unable to sleep. Since I use a Laptop for gaming, one thing that always bugs me is that I have to get close to it for playing games and at times don’t even get a good spot or posture to play games, most of the times my Legs on which the Laptop is placed gets tired and I have to keep rotating the strike around both the Legs. Now, for an Android device owner, it is easy to use his device as a Joystick to play games from a fair distance, or the least play it comfortably.

Legacy Controller for iPhone does the Job, you can easily configure the app and play games wirelessly on the PC. The same method will work for both PC and Mac, but there aren’t much games available for Mac, so let’s keep it towards windows Only and also, this thing might not suit many Shooting Games but for racing games this is the best thing you need. The app is totally free and works flawlessly.
