Hasn't been updated for almost 2yrs. Also does a lousy job of connecting to the controller. Connecting manually thru the phone's bt toggle is much easier. Application doesn't really do anything other than present how to connect whichever controller u own to the phone. Such a shame coz 8bitdo makes such amazing controllers. Would be amazing if they added the ability to remap the buttons thru this application coz i really don't like B,A,Y,X setup as opposed to the common A,B,X,Y setup. I knw this is how Nintendo's con
Worse than worthless, complete waste of time. Rediculous Permissions! Is this a backdoor for China or what? The application thinks the controller is not connected. When you do obtain it to recognize it, the try function doesnt work. Then the Touch emulation option, if you can obtain it to answer to L1+start has a menu overlay that makes no sense. If you click on instructions it says to connect the controller! Ahhhhhh! Used SN30 Pro gameboy color
Not good experience. Purchased m30 months ago on the promise it would work on Android. Application didn't have help then and still doesn't now. The touch emulation is also a joke. A poor one. Emailed help and was told to stfu. Everyone loves this company but I feel I've been scammed.
I have the sn30 pro controller and its the first android game pad i have ever had for a phone. This gamepad is really good. playing grand theft auto vice town stories is very enjoyable. Battery life is amazing connection is rock solid aint disconnected once The pad Connected no issue and it works in every emulator i have tried. But it could be a bit more advanced and customisable because i cant even see a settings page. Options like inverse directions, latency options etc would create this so much better
a amazing application but why do I have to connect my phone to pc to activate mapping software every single time I begin the application ?? it is totally useless like this, it should be a one time process that activate mapping forever or at least as long as the application is installed
I like the application but it's always crashing. constantly getting a notification multiple times per day that it crashed. I'm not even opening the app. tried redownloading the application after clearing cache and storage data for clean install but same outcome. also. people complaining about the buttons being reversed....that's always been the layout for nintendo....what's wrong with these people. pick up a snes controller anywhere and that's how it is
The application is ok it works for most android games using my SN30 Pro controller. It can seem to be difficult to set up at first but once you obtain it set up you realize how simple it really is to use. The only thing I want I could do is be able to change how the right joystick functions because for some android games it will invert the up and down as well as create it really slow to move around especially since the right joystick is mainly used for looking around. So it will create it next to impossible to use on some games. If there is a method to change how the joysticks work someone please allow me know or if they modernize the application to be able to do that I will be more than satisfied to raise the rating from 3 stars to 5. Otherwise this application is ok to use but the controllers are just amazing!
Handy application that got my small 8BitDo ZERO controller working with my phone. However I noticed that 8Bitdo have a newer ver (V4.4) of the application on their website. Sadly it can't be installed (unless I'm guessing you wish to root your phone (not advisable, if you don't know what you are going and not wanting to trash your warranty). Did v4.4 fail to be approved by Google?
Wouldn't connect to the pad in-app, yet had no issues through phone itself. Tried all the suggested fixes but no joy. Average rating for the application when I wrote this is 2.4, which is beautiful telling. In other words, useless sadly. Bit of a allow down after amazing Xmas show
Controller try function works, but that's all I'll give a positive for. Had numerous failures to have the application even operate as it kept crashing. Turned off my wireless connection data connection and it did not crash as I opened the app. So it crashes if connected to the internet. Not good.
With 8Bitdo ZERO almost works perfectly BUT Sometime touchscreen emulation stop work. I need to reactivate this feature again. I missing manual mode for make touch profile because auto mode is not reliable. IU is not organized well. I need in application autodetect controller, try controller, map touch
It's a decent touch screen emulator which works if you follow the instructions. It would be amazing to create known to users that the script has to be run after every reboot to ensure touchscreen emulation works again. Also, it would be better to have multiple profiles for multiple android games =). Lastly, it would be better if touch emulation can work under low memory constraints (e.g when playing android games with high memory usage).
amazing controller, horrible app, which defeats the point of owning a controller. have tried multiple times to run the touch screen emulation program and it does not work outside of the application itself. once i begin a game, i cannot run the program, rendering the controller useless. customer service has also been nonexistent in helping this problem out. it is a shame because the controller itself is beautiful cool, just no method to use it..
[8bitdo FC30 Pro] [Galaxy Sol] This application did not do a other reviews have said like breaking controllers, it works alright the touchscreen emulation works but was a bit confusing to set up and I still can't obtain the save profile function to work. 8/10 recommended for anyone with the 8bitdo controller.
[email protected]@k!! due to your buggy application my 8bit zero got [email protected]@ked up, seriously, XABY R1 R2 buttons not working now(only dpad ) ( like I've tried everything: change phones, modes , factory restart , seem some internal programing of the controller was restart (damaged)(any suggestions ?) Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please
It helped me hookup my 8bitdo controller to a nexus 7 tab that had a broken usb port. Bluetooth wouldn't recognize it without this application but now I'm playing everything! 5 stars for the simple setup! Create sure your firmware is updated on your controller if you have problems.
