Review of Product: I never knew there were such awesome peripherals for the iPad! The Joystick-It is so cool, it just sticks to the screen for games that use a Joystick-It. I used it with Pac-Man and some other games and it makes playing the games easier and much more fun! I need to search for more games that use the Joystick because I am slightly obsessed with this fun toy to use with my iPad!
