Wan Chai, Hong Kong -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2014 -- Hong Kong: This week, Kickstarter-funded Phonejoy announces the release of a new app for iPhones that recommends iCade and iOS7 compatible games to gamepads of all brands. This service is intended as a complement to the Phonejoy controller which had been delayed several times much to the dismay of Kickstarter backers. The gamepad controller, which effectively turns a mobile phone into a portable game console, was originally intended to launch in April 2013. Now, nearly a year later, Phonejoy assures the product will hit the market in March 2014.
Meanwhile, competitors have already made it into retail stores worldwide, albeit without an companion app. The Phonejoy app claims to have the most complete library of compatible games, boasting a combined total of over 300 iOS games. When asked about the app, Martin Kessler, Phonejoy co-founder, replied, "For those that have been impatient and bought one of our competitor products, at least now you'll to be able to find matching games to pass the time until we are hitting the stores.”
- The iOS app recommends game controller compatible games to users providing a service that Phonejoy’s competitors ignore.
- The current library has over 100 iOS7 games (optimised for 3rd party MFI licensed game controllers) and over 200 iCade games.
- An Android version of the app is set to hit the Google Play store in late February 2014.
- The Phonejoy controller is set to be released in March 2014, currently in production.
The Phonejoy app is now available for FREE on Apple’s App Store
