    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.

    Mine is on it's way. Ordered the black with translucent green buttons. Anyone have a pic of the black/green gripper on their Droid?

    Comparing the original with a new one, it seems the only noticeable difference are the tabs that wrap around the bottom of the Droid.

    Does it stay tighter now? Reports of it moving around are the only reason I haven't ordered one yet.

    Look, even with the original, it would only move around if you were seriously jamming your thumbs down and pushing it around. If that's your only concern, you should be happy to hear that it's not a problem at all. Even while pressing 5 simultaneous buttons frantically with Street Fighter and Mario RPG, it stayed in place.

    Agreed. I never used the 'original' but this 'grip' seems suitable enough. It's by no means tight, and there is a little bit of wiggle room, but it wasn't really going anywhere on me either. I wouldn't mind a rugged 'click' of sorts, a firm locking grip into place, but hey, what can ya do?

    Another confirmation that it also does not work too well with the Seidio case (a separate observation from the above), though it's not terrible. I was able to finish 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. with it on the Seidio case...it's just a little awkward. There must be something that can be done to accommodate it.... *ponders*

    Just placed my order. :)

    I would love for this to be compatible with the Seidio case, but I understand that it is not realistic to make a version for all of the popular cases out there. It's easy enough to take the back of the case off and it's not like I'm playing games on my phone every day.
