Which games work with Fling mini?

There are hundreds of compatible RPG, Space Shooter, Dual-Stick Shooter, Jump 'n' Run, Beat'm Up, and FPS titles! Fling mini can be used with any iPhone or Android game featuring a directional pad, or virtual joystick. Go here for a list of our favorites.

How do I use Fling mini?

Launch your game of choice. Position Fling mini's center control over the directional pad in the game (usually found in the bottom left corner of the screen). We've included two controllers, in case your game has dual controls. Press down on the suction cups to secure Fling mini to your screen. Use your thumb on the thumbstick to navigate easily through the game. When you're done playing, you can store your Fling minis in the handy drawstring bag.

Does it come with one or two joysticks?

Fling mini is only sold as a pair for maximum compatibility with all joystick-controlled games.

If this is mini, what is Fling?

Fling is our iPad-sized joystick. Get a single- or dual-pack here.

Will it damage my screen?

No. We've done extensive life testing with Fling mini, and can confirm it is 100% safe for your iPhone and iPod touch display. However, (and this may be obvious), do be careful not to allow sand, dust, or other hard grit under your Fling mini. Sand is like kryptonite for iPhones and iPod touches and can scratch your screen if it's trapped under Fling mini while you play, so give it a quick wipe if you find yourself in a saharan desert.

How does Fling mini attach to my screen?

Fling mini stays in place by means of two simple suction cups, which provide a secure grip that is easily removable.

Does Fling mini work with iPad?

Fling mini is optimized for iPhone-sized joysticks, and it may not have the range for iPad-sized controls.

What's it made of?

A transparent, flexible engineering resin, machined aluminum, and a couple of suction cups.

Does it come in different colors?

No. Fling mini is a cool, smoky grey color with white graphic accents.

Can I use it with a screen protector?

Possibly. We have found that some screen protectors are too sticky, and can keep Fling mini from gliding over the display. If this is your situation, we recommend changing screen protector brands or removing it altogether. Anti-glare screen protectors may keep Fling mini from mounting to the front. Also, over time, you may find that Fling mini can eventually wear a little on some screen protectors.

What do I do with Fling mini when I'm not using it?

Use the included microfiber bag to stash your Fling minis when you're not gaming or showing them off. You can also use the bag to wipe your screen clean.

Is using Fling mini cheating?

Certainly not! But you will have an advantage over your opponents. If you want to level the playing field, just tell all your friends to get one, too.
