I have an R1 Bluetooth controller. When I connect this controller to my Android tablet, it is well recognized in Bluetooth but at the functional level, it works like a joystick. That is to say, when I move the joystick, it selects the tabs.

What I would like is that this joystick works like a mouse and they indicate a mouse cursor. Is it possible?

It is a joystick. Joysticks generally just have a make/break switch, so I think it will not be very successful, even if you could achieve it. I can't see it being very precise either.

It is possible, but you will need an app that someone has written just for it. I can find many solutions for Windows and Raspberry Pi, but none for Android.
