It has been almost a year since news of the Made for iPhone game controller program was announced back at WWDC 2013. And the devices that have hit the market since then could easily be described as less than impressive. Gaming accessory manufacturer Razer looks to be changing that with its just announced Junglecat controller. Designed for the iPhone 5s/5, the controller is completely pocketable and features an interesting slide-out design. Measuring in at around 20mm thick, Razer claims the device feels just like a regular protective case that allows access to all buttons and ports. Along with the usual D-pad and action buttons, the companion app allows gamers to remap all the buttons and adjust the sensitivity of each separate control. Interestingly, users can even store personalized profiles for specific games. Available in either black or white, the Junglecat will retail for $99.99 and be available in July. You can find more information about the controller on Razer’s site now. If you want a controller and can’t wait that long, definitely take a look at our reviews of the SteelSeries Stratus and Logitech Powershell.
