, this will be more useful and more fun to use than most “regular” controllers.

If I have a complaint, it’s the same complaint I have about every kind of accoutrement that tries to turn phones into game controllers: it’s just a little too bulky. While the Backbone One isn’t big compared with a archetypal game controller, it’s still plenty big enough to not fit into a pocket or a small purse. When absorbed to an iPhone 11, for example, it’s almost the same size as a regular, undocked Switch.

There’s also the price tag. Personally, I don’t think $100 is too much, because I think good controllers and accessories like this are worth advance in, and I’d apparently use it for years. But I can absolutely see that this would be a dealbreaker for lots of gamers, abnormally when you factor in the cost of an iPhone itself, and that you can get a DualShock 4 or Xbox One ambassador for almost half the price.

I still acclaim the Backbone One, after reservation, to those who love gaming on iPhones. It just makes the whole acquaintance better and  in every way. Even if it’s a bit on the big-ticket side, I think it’s worth it.

You can acquirement the Backbone One via the Backbone app, which you can access via the aggregation website here. You can also find it on the App Store.
