Pretty cool, but I like it, the emulation of a gamepad in pc, in particular. It is easy to use and it is a nice touch to be able to create your own layouts. But there are two things i'd love to be changed: First, the decision of whether using a slider as the X and Y axis instead of the phone tilting only. And second, there seems to be a limitation in the number of buttons of the emulated gamepad ( 12 plus axis). If you could correct the first issue, it would be a kickasss app!
Very easy to setup and use. I paired over wifi with the barcode scanner... that was a nice touch. Very easy. I'm using this to make some portable rudder pedals for flight simulators. This is absolutely perfect for this. It looks to only show up as one device no matter how many phones you have connected. Very nice app.
I like it, but... I'm trying to use it as a controller for PC games, where I'd need to use a mouse and keyboard buttons at the same time. And I can't figure out how to do it. Whenever I create a trackpad in the layout editor, it doesn't work. Even the sample trackpad layout doesn't work. The trackpad that came pre-installed works, though, so I feel like there is a way. There just isn't an email for technical support. Some help would be greatly appreciated! Nice app.
Good, but I need more buttons It would be nice to be able to add as many buttons as one needs. I've tried creating a layout with buttons only (24) and hit the ceiling already. Also, I haven't tested it with multiple peripheals... Would give 5 stars with these features...
GreatIdea, but needs more configuration/calibration Trying to play a flight sim, and the plane wont take off, tried calibrating and i cant change the z axis at all, and x and y are bound to tilt instead of the sliders on screen with no option to change. Like the direction it is headed in, but still needs some work
Doesn't Show Pointing Option I have been searching for an app for using my phone as an accelerometer mouse, not a gyroscope mouse. The screenshots for this app show that you can use it as both, along with a touchpad. When I open to the "Mouse" tab, it only shows the touchpad and the gyroscope (tilting) options and not the accelerometer (pointing) option. This is not the only app I have had do this. I do have an accelerometer in my phone (I realize that some phones don't). If I didn't apps that analyze vibration wouldn't work.
