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!
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.
Will not interface with computer correctly Managed to connect it to my pc as a mouse for about forty seconds, but there was no way to make it communicate as a game pad which was all I was really interested in doing. Version 2 beta is worthless as you cannot create custom layouts or set any settings.
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.
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...
Perfect yet not This is a great app. I've found it easy to connect each device. BUT there are things that should be improved. First, the layout editor should be built in the app ( But I would say that is just a little inconvenience) . It also should have a better and more user-friendly interface. For example, it is not clear to me to map buttons to commands. The app should also minimize to the tray. So far, I cannot play any games, since I do not know how to map. Beside all of that, this app does what it tells and delivers. I do hope that the developers respond.
