Product Description

Sunflex has developed and marketed accessories and peripherals for all popular video game systems since 1997. Sunflex is the exclusive distributor for the video gaming brand Snakebyte, covering a wide range of video gaming and PC accessories. The Sunflex Snakebyte idroid:con Rechargeable Bluetooth Game Controller for Android and iOS Devices enables a totally new gaming experience on smartphones or tablets like the Samsung Galaxy series. For the first time, games can be played on your tablet or smartphone the way they were initially designed – thanks to the idroid:con. The idroid:con works on any Android based device with system software 3.2 and up, without the need of an extra App. The Snakebyte idroid:con also supports Apple devices like iPhone and iPad, if they support the iCADE mode. The Snakebyte idroid:con features an ergonomic design for relaxed game play, two analog thumbsticks, a digital gamepad, six digital buttons as well as two analog L and R triggers for perfect game control. The integrated turbo function rounds off the perfect gaming experience. The wireless Bluetooth controller also features a Li-Ion rechargeable battery which can be charged directly via the attached USB cord. The idroid:con however is not just a game controller. All Google Play Store games and Apps can be controlled with the idroid:con with five different, switchable function modes. Compared to common game controllers for Android platforms, the Snakebyte idroid:con does not need a separately installed App to communicate with the tablet or smartphone. This means: connect to your Android device via Bluetooth, start the game and you are ready to play – just like with your consoles or handhelds. Aside from the controller function the Snakebyte idroid:con offers three more function modes: mouse, keyboard and keyboard/mouse. This way your controller is able to realize a slew of input possibilities and seamlessly adjusts to the control pattern of the game you are playing.

For a third party controller, the iDroid feels very nice and solid in the hand.

I bought it play games on my Samsung tablet, it works great and I haven't had any issues.

I live outside the US, so returning it would cost me more than ordering a new one.

I purchased this controller, thinking I could play games on my Nexus 7 with it. I had problems where the device would sometimes connect, and not others. I was going to return it when I realized it was PC compatible. In about five minutes of setup, I had Big Picture Steam working perfectly.

Latency is so extreme. It's impossible to play any fast paced game with these. They also don't work well with two on one device. I bought these for use with snes and nes emulators and they are a pain to configure on them.

Do not buy

I'm using it with a Kindle Fire HD 7" to play emulated games and it works with all of them, I couldn't be more satisfied. The keyboard mode means it works with everything.

The shape is very comfortable in the hand, and the rubberized texture gives the thing a rugged, sturdy feeling. It pairs easily with my devices. What would otherwise be a great controller is crippled by a cruddy, sticky D-pad that sticks in the direction you push it. Otherwise it's great. But I'm an 8-bit guy, and I need my danged D-pad.

Very fast response, easy and painless set-up
The only drawback is the fact the one has to switch profiles for different systems and games but this is hardware limitation
I would recommend it to anyone playing games with game controller

I bought this controller for my bf for xmas. Since he has been using consistantly he has noticed that it works with everything he needs it to. However, he says it is difficult to set up, mainly due to the lack of standardization of supported devices of apps in the app store.
My bf is a computer/technology geek and knows the ins and outs of android programs.

It works good on android...I've been using it for emulators and stuff. However on pc, i tried playing FIFA and the buttons are switched. like A is B and X is Y. Of course, you can map the controls yourself...but would've preferred not to. Tried all modes

Running Android 4.2.1 on Nexus 4

I've gotten the controller to connect in a few of the modes offered. I was able to move the "attention" around menus, but could only "click." So there was no back function by default. Games like GTA didn't register the buttons for mapping.

If more is required to get this together and fully functional, there isn't any directions in box (likely due to lack of standardization) which is excusable, but I couldn't find ANY resource online to get this thing working as a dual shock controller. In fact googling "Snakebyte controller for android" returned me only guides to set up a PS3 controller as a bluetooth Android controller, and I've just been using that ever since. *shrug* Oh well. I'd like to use this one if they could provide a better instruction manual or guide.

Design is what you expect for third party controller, maybe a bit more solid. Feels a bit bulky in comparison to PS3 controllers, but fits nicely in the hands.
