Default Gaming controls on Android tablets - 04-09-2012, 10:59 | posts: 1,266

I have Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus tablet. Since the tablet doesn't have thumbsticks and buttons, some games have virtual controls on the screen but it's hard for me to use virtual controls on screen. For example a racing game can be set up so that I can use pedals and steering wheel on the screen to control the car or I can use the pedals on the screen and turn the tablet like a steering wheel to control the car. I think that my tablet doesn't respond to light touches well. Any suggestions?

I just bought one of those thumbsticks. It's a kindle fire I'll be using it on, but I'll get a review here on wednesday if I remember.

I think that the Logitech thumbsticks are for the IPad.

They aren't tied to the brand. Mutli touch Capacitive screens are all the same tech. If it works on one it'll work on them all.

Kind of. The fling specifically doesn't actually fit very well on the kindle fire, which I suppose I should have expected, but they could've made this thing smaller, I would think, and it would stil work on ipad. I don't know, either way, it doesn't really work for the kindle fire.

On a bigger screen, in fact, I would imagine it would be kind of a pain in the ass. While the spiral design is somewhat interesting, it does require a lot of travel for a joystick. It's not like a standard joystick in that it just pivots from the bottom, you have to move the entire joystick up and down. It's an odd feeling at first.

Have you got the wireless adaptor and a USB to your phone OTG adaptor?

I have the OTG adapter and wired MS XBOX 360 gamepad. The gamepad works within USB/BT Joystick Center but not within any games.
