Here's how to get it to work.( DONT UPDATE FIRMWARE IF IT WORKS WITHOUT IT) First you pair the Nyko playPad through the Bluetooth in your settings . Now turn off the Nyko playPad it should still show up on the list of paired devices. Now open the Nyko playground app click on sync controller it should say controller paired NOW, turn on your nyko play pad and the sync controller button you just pressed should change to controller synced. And bam! Remember it has to be in HID mode. Once it is synced you can even switch the controller to mouse pad mode and even use it as a mouse.
Love the controllers but I have bought multiple Nyko controllers and all work great and for their price they are complete steal. I read the comments of the so called gamers and surprised they haven't figured out the problem is the software not hardware, stop blaming the controls and someone please fix this app and the software. Love the play pad and pro , they feel great depending what game I'm playing, I used little one for more casual games and pro for more demanding game. To bad the app doesn't live up to greatness of the hardwa
Definitely works! Follow the instructions from Ramos Essai! I got this app awhile ago, back when I had an S3. It worked for awhile, and for playing ROMS, it was fun. Then it mysteriously STOPPED working, and I could never get it functioning properly again. It was probably a combination of things. I was using a flashed and rooted device, and I think that flash caused issues throughout my phone. At any rate, a previous user wrote a review on how to use it, so I tried it with my new Note 4 and it totally works. Ya gotta sync the controller with your phone's bluetooth first, then turn the controller off. Then load up the NYKO Playground app, and THEN turn the controller back on. You do that, and you shouldn't have any more issues with it. This controller and the app combined with being able to broadcast the screen of my phone to my Samsung HD television = amazing, full screen retro gaming at its FINEST.
Here we are near the end of 2014 and it's still dreadful. I'm tired of fiddling with this app and getting nowhere. It goes from telling me it can't find the controller despite the controller being connected and showing as synced, then it'll recognise it then tell me it can't find out the firmware version, then I'm told to switch it to HID mode, no App mode, no HID mode, now pair it, now unpair it, it's not connected, oh it is connected, can't recognise it, can recognise it... What's the use. Time to throw it all in the bin and avoid Nyko like the plague.
decent but wont let you pair it says im using a playpad pro when im not and cant change my profile to change info such as customizing buttons
Treat controller Wish I could set up a profile even though the app may think its compatible,literally every app it said this so what's the point? Please add some freedom for the users to figure out what's up with the app your trying to use it with. So basically let us make a profile for what I want and not be interfered with the idiotic app that's thinks some apps are his compatible just wish I could set up what I want
· Updated user interface and simplified set-up of controller profiles.
