Moga Pocket Review
I'd like to do a review on the Moga pocket. I bought it for $14.20 on eBay. The seller did raise up the price to $17, but it's worth it.
Here's the eBay link
Here's the manufacturer's link
The 2 apps I used:
Moga Pivot software: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....pivot.mogapgp
Moga universal driver: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....mogaime&hl=en
The Moga Pivot is the software that connects the Controller to the phone and shows you the list of supported games. It also has the buttons mapped for the game.
The universal driver allows you to create custom mappings for unsupported games, emulators, or to change the button mappings of supported games.
For example, Max Payne is a supported game, BUT the default button mappings do not allow me to shoot in the game. I configured the universal app and changed some buttons and now I can shoot in the game!
It's also fun to play Nintendo 64 with the controller (Super Smash Bro and Super Mario 64, anyone?) and it runs great!
- Great controller
- Preconfigured button mappings
- Small enough to fit in your pocket
- App gives you a list of games that are supported and reroutes you to the Play Store to purchase/download it
- Get Sonic and Pacman for free, when you buy the controller new.
- All the emulators I used already has the Moga controller supported
- Low price tag
- As stated earlier with Max Payne, button mappings may not have the correct controls
- Does not allow you to change the mappings in game nor in the app
- Universal driver is a little confusing to set the controls. I had to change the buttons continuously to find out what it did.
- You have to disable the Moga Pivot app to use the Universal driver. It takes a few seconds, but it becomes a nuisance if you turn on and off the controller many times of the day.
Buy it. Buy it. Buy it! The little nuisances are nothing and the good outweighs the bad! I personally love it and know you will too!
