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 ...

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

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 ...

You can potentially simulate a touch with the command input tap x y (e.g. from a terminal emulator, or possibly with Tasker (can't remember if it can do shell commands, but I presume so)), or over ADB with adb shell input tap x y. See http://stackoverflow.com/a/20830258/2141741 (and if you want to connect the device to itself via ADB, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...
