Best Phone Controller Nice little app, works perfect with all slideme emulators, gta 3 support is also a plus now!
April 22, 2013For GTA 3 and Vice City specifically, please see this guide: http://gametel.se/index.php/Wiki/GameGTAViceCity
Have had this for about 3 years: It's a WONDERFUL gaming controller, but... Could you please update the software to permit us to "name" buttons when assigning a trigger button to certain functions on a GB/GBC/GBA app? I'm getting a lot of "unknowns" when assigning the actual button to a function. It's SO confusing to remember which "unknown" key I assigned to which function! Thanks for hearing me out! <3 Loving the controller though!
With the Gametel site wiki now down it took me a while to figure out how to get the controller working with my new phone. For others who are struggling these are the steps you need to take: 1. Turn on Gametel controller (hold Start button for a few seconds until there is a steady green light at the bottom). 2. Turn on Bluetooth on your device and pair with the controller. 3. Load up app and follow the prompt to use the controller as default controls for your device. You should now be good to go.
Good to bad The pad was half working until I updated firmware to v1.53. Now it wont respond on bluetooth with no device found. At least before I installed, it worked to some extent. but only one button worked on most of the games anyway. Going in cupboard as ive seriously fallen out with the thing..
Good controller Everything syncs well and works nicely. I only wish the shoulder buttons were pushed back a bit. When I lock in my phone its hard to hold and use them.
The controller worked perfect for about 2 months. Then one day I tried to turn it on and all it does is blink twoce and then nothing. Ive made sure it was charged. I uninstalled and reinstallrd i dunno how many times but i still get the same thing. I hold the start button in for 3 seconds and the green light blinks twice then nothing. Every time. Im very disappointed because it was such a good controller and now its useless. If anyone knows whats wrong with it or has a solution or something im missing plwase let me know. Would be nice to hear dirrctly from the developers if possible.
Fantastic Works perfectly with my Motorola defy 1st gen. Thought there might be some issue at first but walking thru the easy set up guide got everything working just like i want. Thank you for the awesome app.
