iMo Turns iPhone Into Joystick

September 17th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

Imo It seems like turning the iPhone in a console or PC controller might become a hot subject as iMo is the second company that tries to mix both worlds together.

What the app does is connect the iPhone with the game you like to play with it. The app translates movement and touches on the iPhone to commands the game will understand. With iPhone features like Accelerometer, consumers might experience a Wii like gaming environment.

"iMo is intended for the casual gaming enthusiast who deeply desires a more exciting gaming experience beyond just using the QWERTY keyboard/mouse as the game controller" says Himanshu Baweja co-founder of iMo. "Extra hardware such as joysticks cost not just in terms of money but are an extra burden during travel, storage and maintenance. iMo addresses these needs by morphing an existing piece of hardware i.e. the iPhone/iPod Touch into a powerful game controller and giving it a Nintendo Wii like capabilities."
