[games_access] iOS 7 beta allows switch access over games (Barrie Ellis)

Game compatible?? That has pretty much made my year, although I'm a little sceptical over how something like Angry Birds that requires accurate analogue gestures could actually work, and I'd be very interested to see if it could work with something that requires anywhere-on-the-screen presses, like Canabalt.

Two switch on consoles sounds pretty incredible too. Are there switch boxes that can handle scanning purely through hardware, to allow single switch access? And does it cope with third player apps, like iPlayer, Sky, twitter etc? YouView is meant to be going switch compatible, but they're taking their time over it.

> Can't wait to try out Star Trigon, Orbital, Canabalt, Pinball arcade, etc. etc.


> On a console note, with thanks also to support from SpecialEffect, I've managed to get two-switch access over a PS3 and Xbox 360, including being able to navigate the entire menu systems. Hope to have something up soon.
