About this app

USB/BT Joystick Center is the only app that has an Unique Driver Editor & Programmable Byte Filter and can use Wii Remotes also with Android 5.1 and higher (also Android 10), PS4 / PS3 DualShock / Sixaxis (Wireless and without Root!) and XBox One Controllers (USB). It has TOUCH EMULATION / GAMEPAD EMULATION (X360,PS3,NAT) / HID / IME support to use nearly all USB Joysticks/Gamepads/Racing Wheels and ANY paired and connected BT Gamepad with HID Mode support to play Games with TOUCH ONLY, GAMEPAD or IME Support

Android 9 Pie and higher: if you are using Android 9 or higher, then you must disable "Manage automatically" in the Android Settings: Battery, App launch, USB/BT Joystick Center, and then disable "Manage automatically"

Please read this carefully:
Not all Android Devices, Stock Roms and Custom Roms are compatible with this app.

For the main feature you do not need root (Keymapping). Also for the Wireless Wii Mote and PS4/PS3 Dualshock you don't need a rooted device. For all Touch + Search HID + Gamepad Emulation features you need root.

Prevent the App from closing:
Android Settings -> Battery -> App launch -> USB/BT Joystick Center, and then disable "Manage automatically"

This is the ONLY touch simulation app that actually works out of the bunch I tried (most being paid version). It's a little convoluted to get setup but I eventually got there. With the filter capability you can do various bit manipulation as well which is just what's needed to get dpad working as 4 buttons. This is exactly what I was looking for and works great if you have the patience to figure it out. It seems like all the people leaving 1 star didn't have the patience to figure out what they want to do but the tool itself actually works great.

Please add Android 13 support the app would crash. THE FOLLOWING FEATURES NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED 1. One button can't be used twice. 2. Two different buttons can't be assigned together. 3. Right Joystick up&down sensitivity can't be changed & is too slow! If I increase the slider to the right vertical sensitivity becomes too fast, lowering it makes horizontal sensitivity too slow, there should be an X & Y separate sensitivity slider! 4. KeyMap save feature is broken, only one map can be saved!

Amazing, my Xbox One controller finally works! My Android Head Unit doesn't know what to do with a controller plugged in (like it doesn't have drivers) anyway this app detects it, the apps settings then emulate it as an xbox controller, you map each key (A, X, Y and sticks) and well that's it.. . Every game with controller support works including my cloud gaming service "Shadow". Feedback id like to see xbox one as an option and also what's the key map worded as for thumb stick in?
