Yes. You put the gamepad into pairing mode by holding down the home button + the back button for 5 seconds, until you see the blue lights flashing, and connecting to the gamepad in the Bluetooth settings in your smartphone.

Yes, you can use a USB game controller without root and without needing any prior setup. Just plug it in and Android will recognise it. By default, the D-pad on the controller will work like a D-pad or trackball on the device itself (if you remember when Android phones used to have little trackballs built in), and it will allow you to move focus between ...

This will almost certainly be impossible. Your XBox doesn't have USB drivers for your Android phone.

Can you not use a USB OTG (On The Go) Cable. It will have a connection (microusb) at one end to fit to your tablet and a USB connection at the other (for many peripherals). This should surely connect your X Box Controller to your tablet. They are very cheap as well. Alternatively, and maybe to be used in conjunction with see the following article from ...

Nice idea, now I think about it, too. I found a little list here (please feel free to edit/add): GTA3 Muffin Knight Pool Break Riptide GP ShadowGun Shine Runner Sonic CD Soulcraft THD If I find some time, I will add controller support to my game Orc Genocide. ATM, it's playable head-on-head with multitouch (useless for TV, but awesome for tablets). I ...

The problem is related to SuperGNES app. I've tried other emulators like SNESDroid and Animaonline SNES and voilĂ  worked as a charm!

There are a bunch of apps available on the market. Some examples include... BT Controller: "BT Controller allows you to use your android device as a gamepad controller for any other android device." (well, you already saw this) Bluetooth Remote PC: "Bluetooth Remote PC is an app which allow you to remotely control your PC. Get access to the computer and ...

You haven't mentioned which types of games you need this for but there are several possible options: Gmote 2.0, which is a client/server type system which would let you use your Android tablet to control your computer. RemoteDroid, which is similar to Gmote, it also uses a client/server system. GRemotePro may be the right choice for you as it is but you ...

According to HTML5test, Chrome for Android (as of v33) does not support controller input APIs. You'd likely have to wait for this to be implemented in some future version, or try to find a browser that does support it.

Well if the already build adapter doesn't work you can make your own folowing this steps (if you are not able to do all the soldering ask a professional nearby like a phone repair shop) : Background : Samsung made the new 11pin MHL technology on the galaxy note 2 and the S3 (those are the first devices to have it any top shelf phone out after that day have ...

Not all games have full gamepad support. Manufacturers of these gamepads will claim that every game is supported which is only half true. They will only have limited functionality. I have the exact same issue on certain games using a G910 I purchased from geekbuying. Here is a site that I use to check for full gamepad support. Android Gamepad support

No, there isn't. The official product website doesn't offer this as a feature, and I've tested with its little brother, the Moga Pro. Incidentally, I've never noticed any lag or unresponsiveness when using a Moga Pro with a Nexus 10 on 4.2 or 4.4.2. Perhaps your lag can be blamed on a specific app you're running?

Android supports USB controllers (using the standard USB HID profile) and Bluetooth controllers (again, if they use the standard Bluetooth HID profile). Wireless controllers that use a special wireless receiver probably won't work with Android (but they might if the wireless receiver acts as a USB HID device). To use a USB controller with your phone, you ...

There's a $43 USB device, InputStick, that will do the trick. I bought this a few months ago for password entry from KeePass on Android, but the developer created the USB adapter so your android device can act as any conceivable USB device. Your android device connects to the USB dongle via bluetooth, and the desktop computer sees the USB dongle as any ...

While I do not have the final solution - I was able to make some progress in figuring out why the G2 fails to work with the 360 controller. I've been doing diagnostics and noticed that the LG G2 USB connection manager is emulating a USB2.0 and USB3.0 device hub - which shows up when an OTG cable is connected to the phone - and while it identifies the 360 ...

If your phone is rooted then one option may be to try the Sixaxis Controller app (it's a paid app, but you can test compatibility with your phone using the free Sixaxis Compatibility Checker app). The app should work with both official Sixaxis and DualShock 3 Playstation controllers over bluetooth, but due to the non-standard bluetooth protocol used by the ...

nJoy is a very good app as well, it uses WiFi but you can just use your own hotspot if you're not using WiFi atm and turn off data if you don't want extra charges.

You should be able to just plug the controller in to your tablet with a OTG usb cable and then an app like USB/BT Joystick Center 6 will map the controller inputs to something your device can recognise.

USB controllers follow a spec which means any USB controller "should" work. So there is not a "list of supported devices" as they all are supposed to work as long as they are not proprietary. Even an Xbox 360 wired controller should work (not sure about a wireless 360 controller, even when plugged in with the charge kit). Now your wireless controller is ...

This would be possible if your rooted your phone and wrote an installed a new kernel usb driver which made it look like a supported network adapter. Needless to say that would be a project requiring quite a bit of expertise and effort - it's probably going to be cheaper to get a supported adapter, and not tie up your phone in the process.
