Razer has announced the Junglecat gamepad for iOS devices. The company says it offers a combination of gaming-grade control and customizability with phone access.
The Razer Junglecat will be available in July for US$99. It sports a slider that reveals or hides the gamepad as desired. It sports a full set of gaming functions resident in the Razer Junglecat’s AXBY pressure-sensitive buttons, D-pad and bumpers. Users can leave the Razer Junglecat attached, as all buttons and ports remain available in its pocket-ready compact form. At only 20 mm thin, the controller feels like a standard protective case.
The Razer Junglecat comes with a downloadable iOS app that lets users remap and define all of its button functions, as well as adjust pressure sensitivity according to preference. Up to 20 personalized profiles can be stored on the app, allowing users to select a corresponding profile for their favorite games.
The software keeps gamers up-to-date on the latest titles optimized for controller play. Interested persons may find a list of controller-compatible games and learn more about the Razer Junglecat and its iOS companion at http://tinyurl.com/kzjsjoz .
