How to connect your PS3 Controller to your iPhone or iPad
Ever Wanted to Connect your PS3 Controller to your iPhone or iPad? But thought it can’t be done? well that was wrong because you CAN Connect your PS3 Controller to your iDevice thanks to Blutrol Cydia Tweak. You can Connect your PS3 Controller to your iDevice to play games with it.
I was able to play some awesome games such as Street Fighter and some emulators with the controller, it’s literally like having a portable gaming system. You can even extend this system to your TV if you have an Apple TV to stream the content to.
It isn’t very hard but it is a long process so be patient if u want to learn it.
