Here's what I did so far:
- Unit is very nicely designed. Good feel to it. Similar to an XBOX type controller, but not as bulky. All the buttons and joypads feel great. Doesn't feel cheap at all. Does not feel like they will break easy either.
- Install software, turn on bluetooth, pair device. Took me three times to get it to pair. If it doesn't pair you turn it off and on and try again. Takes up to 30 seconds.
- There's two different modes. It says the most popular is A, so I set that up, but there's also B. You have to go through the pairing process again. Took me two times this pairing. A mode is for Moga compatible games. B mode is for games that support HID controls.. IE: you can map keys in game. The game I have only has on screen stuff to press for movement, fire, etc. You have to purchase a separate app if you want to map to screen touches. See below.
- Once unit is paired it asks if I want to install Pac-Man. No thanks. The annoying part is EVERY time I open their software it keeps asking me about Pac-Man. I said no already, dude!
- There's a big list of games. You can sort by Category or A-Z. Problem is I don't want those games. I want to play something I already have.
- Phone fits nicely into clip. The clip is spring loaded I guess. It has rubber on both sides so as not to scratch your phone. Pretty secure. Phone is a bit heavy, so if you tilt too far towards you, the clip may try to close on you.
- Unit also comes with a stand for tablets.
I mentioned above about getting another app to map buttons to a touch screen. I am currently trying out something called Game Controller 2 Touch. It's $4.99 and got good reviews. It took me awhile to figure it out, but here's what I learned:
- First take a screen shot of your game where you want to map buttons. This is very important because in the software you can set your background to that picture. No need to go back and fourth in the game testing keys and they aren't in the right spot. Oops! I learned that 20 minutes too late. You enable GC2T as your Input Method and you can make keys for up down left right, etc. Then in Configuration is where you can make a Touch Profile.
