D-pad update is great
I love the update to the D-pad. I haven't had to look down at my fingers while using it yet. The only problem is the A and B buttons. They seem so small and as I'm playing a game my fingers move off of the buttons just a little and I end up missing the button press. My suggestion would be to make the A and B buttons be areas to press rather than a button, such as the A button could be all the way over to the bottom right of the screen and be a box and the B button be another box in between the A button and D-pad so that when you play a game your fingers hit the larger area rather than the small buttons they are now. This would help improve gameplay and I wouldn't have to keep looking at my thumb to make sure it is on the right button.
This app has done everything possible to make the controller obsolete. Some people complain that for full access you must pay a fee, but I say that the price for a normal controller would be much greater, probably about 5x the amount of touchy's full-access pass. It is very possible that a physical controller would not work for nitrome games. This is a wonderful app and the only thing that I can think they could add is maybe floating buttons (not just the d-pad), or some sfx or something of that sort.
A clever idea, could use some work.
I definitely like the idea of having a handheld controller for computer games, with better control over the D-pad it could be really fun. I find myself looking at the touchy screen more than I look at the computer screen, because( and I in NO way blame Nitrome for this) there is no way to feel around for controls. I think this issue could be solved if a screen of the actual game was displayed on the touchy. Clever idea, still needs work though. :\
