    I play everything with pro pad, even on the go (I fashioned a pro grip for the screen). I cant handle tiny hurty non ergonomic button placement.

    The concept art people did for GC looking joycons would be perfection.

    I also play on the go with an iPad 2 holder. It is from Grifin and fits perfectly!

    Lol but the switch has a kick stand.

    My method makes the whole thing portable.

    Like nvidia sheild portable: screen mounted above pro controller.

    No table required.

    The whole Kick stand is a bad idea when playing in a buss or airplane. It falls over so easy! What is your solution then?

    Just wall-mount your Switch on the back of the seat, there is a reason I carry a drill when I get on an airplane.

    PS: Yeah, the kickstand sucks.

    I've get used for this layout in a couple of days so now I don't need a d-pad replacement at all. If I'll eventually buy a lot of fighting titles I may consider to buy a couple of that Hori arcade sticks, though.

    I hated the idea at first and expected it to be really awkward to use, but it actually doesn't work that bad.
    It's not great, but not bad. I would still rather have a proper D-Pad but it works fine for the occasional game that actually needs it.

    Does it have microswitches? No? It is going to be inferior then.

    Yeah I find that position odd, though I usually end up moving the joycon a little further up in my grip so my thumb reaches it better rather then trying to contort my thumb to it. So it's not a really big issue though. I have skinny spider hands though so I can't say for sure if others can do what I do. :P
