Austrian developers Alexander Erifiu and Mario Grammer have dumped previous projects WiiConnect and WiiRider to put out an exciting new application dubbed mobiPad. Perhaps the choice of name is a bit odd, but the app itself is quite exciting. With mobiPad, S60 3rd Edition and UIQ 3 users alike can connect a Wii remote to their handset and control device operation with the remote. Badass! The app itself is essentially a bluetooth driver that enables the handset to connect to a Wiimote via bluetooth and decipher commands related to key presses on the remote. The Wii nunchuck is not currently supported but it is planned for future versions along with a variety of cool new features such as the ability to define custom key mapping. The app is Symbian Signed and available for download from the developer’s site as freeware. Got a Wiimote? Got an S60 or UIQ handset? To say that mobiPad enhances your mobile gaming (and other) experience is a huge understatement. Definitely check it out, and hit the FAQ on the developers’ site for key mapping details.
