I want to rate this app higher, but after spending over $90 on a Kishi V2 specifically because of the button mapping, I must say I'm disappointed in that aspect. The button binding to M1/2 does NOT work, no matter what keys I use, and after about 4 min. of use, the Virtual controller will just decide to bug out and I have to hit the Nexus button and go back into the game again to reload it. It becomes more and more annoying each time I do it. If these 2 things are fixed, I'll be a happy camper.

A whole lot better, I added 2 stars, the virtual controller is exactly what I was hoping for when I bought the kishi. I have high hopes for this, considering the fact that this tech can only evolve. I mesed up the virtual controller and I can't edit it with the overlay, I might b able to fix it, but I think it was a bug. I'll add another star if I can fix it.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. As there are still limitations on some features like implementing mapping support, the feature is currently unavailable. Although we don't have exact visibility when it would work, we're looking forward to the possibility. You can email our support at googleplay.ca@razer.com for any other concerns.

The app works good as a bare bones game launcher and button remapper. It needs a lot of work though. There's no way to customize the order of the games. Icons of installed games are blurry. Button remapping only allows the M triggers to be remapper and even those can only be remapped to other buttons on the controller. For a $99 controller, I'd expect the companion app to be more polished and feature rich.
