SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Caliber Advantage™ from iFrogz®, a ZAGG Inc brand (NASDAQ: ZAGG), 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 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Caliber Advantage was created to address growing demand for the ability to develop and play more immersive games on Apple’s operating system, iOS, and will soon be able to give gamers and developers full console-style gaming in the palm of their hand.
Compatible with the iPhone 5 and the fifth-generation iPod touch, the Caliber Advantage provides 360-degree motion control with viewing options in both portrait and landscape position. Gaming action is made possible through left and right slide-out analog controls that feature responsive keys for an accurate, high-quality gaming experience. Available this fall for $59.99, the Caliber Advantage will also feature an integrated lithium polymer battery offering 10-12 hours of continuous play without the need for a charge.
“iOS 7 and the new Game Controller framework from Apple open a world of possibilities for developers and the entire gaming community,” said Randall Hales, president and CEO of ZAGG. “Over the next several months, we believe the Caliber Advantage will become a must-have product as new and current gaming titles are announced for the iOS platform.”
In addition to the Advantage mobile gaming controller, iFrogz offers a complete line of headset accessories for mobile gamers, including the iFrogz Caliber Ammo and Stealth. Later this year, iFrogz will expand its gaming portfolio to smartphones and tablets with the addition of a universal game controller.
