Hi, i only play games now and then on my tablet so i don't need a brilliant expensive one, i just want one that will do the job and make game playing on certain games (gta, sonic etc) better, i find using the screen all the time a bit rubbish and makes me not want to bother with the games i have.

can anyone recommend one?

I use a wireless ps3 contoller and the sixaxis app but you need to be rooted i believe.

Someone link me to an OTG cable?

I'd love to give this a go (non-rooted here, and intend to keep it that way)

Assuming you have an android phone as well you could try this app it works for me I use it with nesoid and n64oid and believe it should work with gta and sonic it turns your phone into a bluetooth controller for use with a tablet or another phone as the host. Heres the link to the free version which I am using I am thinking of getting the full version so I can have other controller layouts. Full version is a $1.10 aus.
