GLBasic supports iPad joysticks

GLBasic writes "The lack of proper controls for iPad and iPhone games had been a pain for many gamers since the huge impact of the iOS based devices. But clever geek solutions exist that bring the joy of old school buttons and joysticks to the new gaming era.
Starting with the iCade and followed by the more compact iControlPad now the giant Atari released a bluetooth gadget that connects to your iPad or iPhone as a keyboard, offering great physical controls for great games.

With the update version 10.113, the developers of GLBasic offer a built-in support for these devices. Programming is very easy, because from the programmers point of view the iCade was implemented as if there was a 2nd joystick attached to a PC.

GLBasic is a free programming language that supports a huge variety of target platforms. The "premium" SDK purchase offers support for many mobile devices, 3D graphics and networking action."
