Release Your Phone's Inner Gaming Console
Chances are, your mobile phone is capable of running games and apps equal to those on PCs and consoles. Not just Angry Birds, but core first-person shooters, driving sims and so much more! By adding C.T.R.L.R. and a suitable HDMI video adapter* to your phone, you can enjoy amazing big-screen gaming in high-definition, the likes of which you never thought possible. Not limited to Android smartphones, C.T.R.L.R. connects to PC and Mac computers, tablets, and even Fire TV. Mouse mode – one of three selectable controller modes – vastly simplifies web browsing on smart TVs. The versatile, solidly built C.T.R.L.R. is always ready for a game whether at home or on the move.
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 PC 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.
Integrated Media Control
A super-convenient set of multimedia buttons – right on the face of the controller – adds remote-control functionality. Easily start and stop playback of a movie, jump to the next song, and make quick volume adjustments.
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.
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).
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 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.
Lags on Android, nonstandard inputs on PC/Mac games, AWFUL support
This review is from: Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R Mobile Gamepad for Android, Amazon Fire TV, Smart Devices, PC, Mac, and M.O.J.O. Micro-Console
Pros: Exactly the same form factor as the Xbox 360 controller.
Cons: I was excited to get this controller and, wow, what a disappointment.
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.
