If you’d rather hit the dance floor instead of becoming a guitar god, the newly released Just Dance 2016 has an interesting integration with the iPhone.
While the game is only for consoles, you can use your phone with the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Wii U version to act as a controller. No other peripherals are needed. You’ll just need to download the Just Dance Controller app.
Along with being used as controller during dancing action, you can even use the app to navigate around the game itself.
If you’re haven’t heard of the popular game series, players get the chance to complete choreographed dances to some popular songs – everything from trending music to throwback tunes.
Here’s a sample of some of the tracks you can dance to in the game.
• “Want to Want Me” by Jason Derulo
