Caliber Advantage mobile gaming controller : The Caliber Advantage from iFrogz is a combination mobile gaming controller and protective case for Apple devices that incorporates the newly announced iOS 7. Unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference, the iOS 7 Game Controller API (Application Program Interface) will allow both large and independent developers to utilize standard access to game controller functionality on Apple’s portfolio of mobile devices, including the iPhone 5. Previewed at the CES 2013, the Caliber Advantage mobile gaming controller was created to address growing demand for the ability to develop and play more immersive games on Apple’s operating system, iOS 7.
