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

Colin says he's played Angry birds well, and non-time dependent games seem to work best (so I guess the likes of Orbital). I wonder how laggy it is for the likes of twitch one-switch game Canabalt, the same as you.

Re. Two switch on PS3/Xbox 360 navigation works across all the utilities that I've tested inc. photos, video, music, visualiser, web-browser, iPlayer and games which are accessible to a limited extent. Some work perfectly though (Golf, Pool, Pinball, DDR, Um Jammer Lammy). There's a tiny bit of lag, but if the difference is simple being able to play or not being able to play at all, I know what I'd go for. I can play Pinball Arcade fine with it, so it's quick enough.

I'm looking into getting it one-switch accessible, and I'll let you know if I pull it off.

Cheers,

Barrie

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.
