When you first started playing pocket maplestory, you were likely repulsed at the way the controls were set up. Luckily there is a way to change the controls. First, go to inventory and then options. In the top right, you should see this control section:
Click on change control. When you do that, there should be a screen that shows all of your controls. On this screen, you can add more shortcuts and change the position of some of your on-screen controls. In the top left, there should be an option to change your controls from the "fixed type" to the "portable type." The fixed type is the one you dislike, so change the controls to the portable type. This will make the controller appear wherever you place your finger down, making it much easier to control your character.
