iPad users who've jailbroken their devices won't have to search for the perfect iOS 7 controller anymore.

PS3 controllers, with their common Bluetooth connectivity standards, are the perfect controller for a number of devices. Many PC gamers use the Sony controller to play Windows, Mac and Linux games, for example. And now iOS 7 users can do the same—provided they've taken the steps to jailbreak their devices, that is.

Called "Controllers for All," the mod lets users with a PS3 controller connect it via Bluetooth and use it with any iOS 7 games that are compatible with controllers. It's located in the "ModMyi" store in the Cydia app on jailbroken devices.

There are some high-quality iOS 7 gamepads out there, like SteelSeries' Stratus, but PlayStation 3 pads are readily available for less than half of what the official iOS 7 controllers cost. The advantage is clear as day. [via iDownloadBlog]
