    I think I'd probably order a second one if it were designed to work with my case on. As it is for me, it's still worth taking the case off to use because i like it so much but not having to would be a huge bonus.

    Ok, I ordered one so I will hopefully know soon enough but if you have a dremel, couldn't you just dremel a bit off the insides being very careful and make it fit that way??? Just a thought...:greendroid:

    I was pondering the same thing. I may try something as drastic once mine arrives. I am still excited to see it, though a bit disappointed to hear this slim case is still enough to get in the way.

    I'm subscribing to this thread because I would love to find a way to make the gripper work with a Seidio case still on.

    Mine's in the mail. Black with blue buttons, I'll take pictures or something once I get it. I don't have a Seidio case though.

    I tried again, leaving the case on when i used the game gripper (basically had to hold it down to get it somewhat flush), however it was playable for maybe 20 seconds before it started missing the keys. I just took the case off, not worth it. I feel like you could take some off the sides of the game gripper like you were talking about but it would lose its ability to stay in place unless you did a REALLY good job. Part of what makes it work so well is how it stays in place when you use it because it relies on matching up with the keys. Let me know how that goes if you give it a try.

    Just got my game gripper in the mail, thought I'd share some pics.

    Main part is made of very flexible black rubber, buttons are made of hard plastic. The only gripe I have about it is the fact that you really really have to keep your hands tight around the sides or it will move all over the place while using it. Other than that it works great, even for diagonal movements. As you can see in the third picture when I first got it either side would come up off the droid but I just bend it the other way a few times and it seemed to help.

    Just got mine yesterday. Black with red buttons. So far, I like it lots. Makes the games very playable.

    I echo the other comments and say that the game gripper won't work with the back part of the Seidio Innocase attached. It has to be removed. The front part of the Innocase, however, can be left attached.

    Got mine today. Works fine. It does slide around a bit during use though, always seems to be at the worst moment its shifted to the wrong keys :p But for 15 bucks, I'm more than satisfied :)

    So a few ideas,

    Could you eventually make button packs available? people could order just buttons, say if they want to change out the color. Also you could ship out just the rubber piece as well. even go as far as to get the button colors right for the SNES pad and offer that. or glow in the dark buttons, UV reactive buttons, etc.

    Also, using felt or something on the bottom of the keys where they contact the keypad might help.

    Maybee fashion some sort of way to lock it to the Droid to avoid slipping, rubber feet that grip the back of the droid and make it harder for the piece to move around.

    Their website says they modified the design slightly so that it doesn't slip on the Droid anymore, and has a good tight grip.

    I just ordered one today so we'll see.
