Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R. Mobile and Desktop Software

GameSmart products come with an intuitive software application which helps you get the most value from your new purchase. The downloadable Mad Catz application for Android provides the ability to monitor battery levels, adjust Mouse Mode settings, and view the input of axes and buttons.

PC users can customize and then assign game-specific profiles to the controller. If your game lacks HID gamepad input, compatibility is attainable by assigning keyboard and mouse commands to the controllers buttons and sticks. The software clearly identifies each programmable area of the C.T.R.L.R., and programming is very straightforward.

Three Modes, Total Control

PC Mode provides operability with PCs and Mac computers, while GameSmart Mode controls Android devices such as the M.O.J.O. Micro-Console. And when in Mouse Mode the controller functions as a mouse control for Bluetooth-connected devices by assigning navigation to the left analog stick and action buttons.

Future-Proof via Dual-Mode Bluetooth 4.0 Module

A first for gaming peripherals, this version C.T.R.L.R. employs a premium dual-mode Bluetooth 4.0 chip to ensure power-efficient compatibility with current Bluetooth Classic devices. Courtesy of a USB to Micro-USB port, future firmware updates will help ensure compatibility with upcoming Bluetooth Smart, also known as Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) devices. Future updates will also boost power efficiency and minimize latency.

Travel Ready

Perfect for replacing touch controls with console-like controller functionality, a detachable and adjustable travel clip lets you mount your device directly atop the C.T.R.L.R. Mobile Gamepad.*

*Minimum device width = 2.3 inches (58.6mm); maximum device width = 3.17 inches (80.5mm).

Power-saving Hero

Thanks to integrated Bluetooth technology, the C.T.R.L.R. is outstanding at power conservation. The included AAA batteries provide energy for up to 40 hours of continuous control over your favorite games, apps, and media.

Play Smart with GameSmart. Your Devices. Your Games and Media. Anywhere.

The modern living room is a gathering place for multimedia entertainment. Navigating media streaming services, browsing the web, managing menus and entering text on multiple gadgets can sometimes present a challenge. Bluetooth technology enables GameSmart products to consolidate device management. GameSmart delivers near-universal compatibility with PC and Mac computers, Android and Windows Phone handsets, plus laptops, tablets and smart TVs. When one product conveniently functions with differing devices, you'll find comfort in knowing that adding another to your collection won't require yet another purchase.

Perfect Complement to M.O.J.O. and Fire TV

Residing at the center of the GameSmart ecosystem, M.O.J.O. makes your favorite mobile games even better. Ideal for multiplayer gaming, a secondary C.T.R.L.R. lets you and a friend play together on M.O.J.O.

Amazon Fire TV is compatible with game controllers that support the Bluetooth HID gamepad profile. Since C.T.R.L.R. adheres to this profile, it's an excellent full-size controller for Fire TV.

1 out of 5 eggsLags on Android, nonstandard inputs on PC/Mac games, AWFUL support

Pros: Exactly the same form factor as the Xbox 360 controller.

Cons: I was excited to get this controller and, wow, what a disappointment.

1) With Android (Nexus 7, 2013 [latest version]): If you're hoping that buying a premium product from MadCatz would avoid the need for digging around forums for glitch fixes, you'll be disappointed with this product. After a second or two of using it on my Nexus 7, the controller starts lagging. Only by a half second, maybe, but that renders it useless when trying to play a game. I dug around for a fix and found that if you turn off and on bluetooth and then re-pair the device, the lag will usually go away. Sometimes you have to do this multiple times to get it to work.

2) With OS X: HUGE disappointment because this is 90% of why I bought the C.T.R.L.R. It doesn't use standard gamepad inputs, apparently, because none of the controls match up with what controller-friendly games are expecting. That means you have to tell games to ignore the gamepad and only use mouse & keyboard, and THEN create or install a profile that emulates the keys. This eliminates any bit of convenience you could hope for this thing over a 360 controller. Why create an exact clone of a 360 controller and then completely change what inputs it's sending the computer so that it requires custom programming or installing game profiles (if available)? You're MUCH better off getting a 360 controller and the USB transceiver, even though it requires a 3rd party driver. I was hoping this device would be more convenient, since it doesn't require a USB dongle and has an OEM driver, but nope. For gaming on a Mac, this C.T.R.L.R is definitely not a good solution. They should disclose that they have their own proprietary set of inputs that NOBODY supports... but then maybe they'd have a problem selling their controllers if people were actually informed about the all the issues.

I learned a lot about MadCatz with this experience and will not buy another product of theirs again.

Other Thoughts: MadCatz support is a joke. I opened a ticket and they took two days to respond, only to ask me if the ticket was still open. After I reaffirmed that, yes, my ticket was still open, the rep just repeated the pairing instructions, which I had already done numerous times and said as much in my ticket. In other words, he didn't even READ my ticket before replying with a copy-and-pasted response meant for folks who can't even pair a Bluetooth device to their computer. After I explained, again, what the problem was, I heard nothing back and that was 3 days ago. It turns out the problem was actually with OS X Yosemite & Bluetooth (reset the PRAM to fix it), which I updated him with so hopefully he can tell other customers with the same problem, but the ticket wasn't handled well at all. If you have so many people slamming you with tickets that days go by and you have to ask customers if their tickets are still open, you have a SERIOUS quality control issue with your products.
