    I have one of the original black w/green buttons.

    A great tip for everyone. When I play I tend to move around the rubber gripper. When this happens and as I'm mashing away on the buttons I end up hitting the search and <enter button here> which enables the shortcut buttons like Email, Yahoo, Contacts, Music etc...

    If you have the same issue, I recommend turning off the shortcut keys in the Settings --> Applications --> Quick Launch. It makes a HUGE difference!

    Thanks for the interesting story GameGripper. I was kind of wondering how this idea came to be as well. I received my game gripper last week as well (Black w/ green translucent buttons). It works well, and I don't have much slide, but I think the extra grip would be handy. Man, you make me feel like a lazy turd, coming up with this idea, planning it out, making it happen. and I mean that as a complement! :wink:

    I'm satified with my game gripper. Thanks!

    I got my Game Gripper a few days ago. I actually ordered it before that X-Box style one appeared on here, but I made a request on the button scheme and it's paid off pretty well...

    I don't know if mine is one of the newer 'less slip' models. I know that it slipped for me one time - I was holding the down arrow a little hard and pushed it down. But now I make sure to just be careful with my button pressing, and I grip the sides of the Droid and it works out well.

    The thing that may make it slide less is that the Game Gripper appears to be slightly shorter than the Droid keyboard is, so it makes a snug fit. I'd take a picture of that, but my Droid is my camera and it would be kind of difficult to do...

    I've got mine set up in the SNES emulator so everything is mapped how it should be (and the two extra buttons in the middle are save/load) and same idea in the NES emulator, except the 'X and Y' are turbo A and B.

    I'm just having a hard time coming up with a comfortable setup. For the NES Emulator, you only need to set up an A & B button (and the directional pad), right?

    I never said it was hard, I said I was having a hard time coming up with a comfortable setup. Reading is fundamental. ;-)
