Fling mini tactile control for iPhone totally obscures half the screen

The Fling mini by Ten One Design is designed to provide you with tactile control for those touchscreen games. You get a dual thumbstick-like configuration with actual thumbstick-like controls, rather than swiping your finger around virtual circles on the screen. The trouble is, as you can quite clearly see, it obscures about half of the screen.
