Customer Reviews

No physical buttons other than power and volume.
Samboha
Its also too tiny and I don't have particularly big hands either.
Lars Kingbeard
Wait for them to (hopefully) redesign the ergonomics completely.

This controller is very small and portable. It's perfect for when you're on the go, and its 4 buttons (ABCD) are really sufficient for the most part to play most games (even PS1 games, as long as they only use 1 analogue).

There are 3 big problems with this unit though, and they really hurt the whole package:

1. The analogue is small and responsive, but it has a good amount of resistance, so the fact that it has a smooth and curved top really decreases your grip. The analogue really needs some ripples or it needs to be concave like the Xbox 360 Wired Controller.

2. Since the controller is so small and your hand covers it entirely when you're holding it, you'd imagine that all the buttons would be protruded and feel like triggers on a console pad. But for some bizarre reason, the button under the unit (the one that looks like a gun trigger button) is receded, making it so that you have to click it with the tip of your finger. It's HORRENDOUS to try to hold that button, move the analogue, and press another button at the same time (like in the Resident Evil PSX games). It's also not possible to use it as your main button (A, X), it's just too awkward to press. Terrible decision.

3. And finally, the power button also doubles as an extra button (hold to turn on/off, tap for 'D' button). This isn't a big deal since you'd usually assign it to a "open menu" button, but it's just weird why they didn't go with a switch under the unit or something.

To use this mini-wireless BT joystick to run mame emulator (arcade games) on android, you need to download a free app called "Bluez IME". I got it working fine. The joystick is good for slow games like Frogger... not so good where quick movements and precision is required (e.g. Pacman, shooter games). Still, it's better than nothing esp since it's only $12.99. The best thing about it is that it's so portable.

Unlike the old phones with 5-way navigational pads and several other real buttons, today's cheap lazy manufacturers keep churning out featureless hunks of black glass, passing off their lack of creativity for elegance. No physical buttons other than power and volume. It's ok for Angry Birds, but not very useful for, say, a Game Boy or MAME emulators. Zeemote could have filled this gap, but it doesn't. It only works with limited number of games. Instead I'd recommend a Nintendo Wii remote. It can be linked to your device with a free app. And it works with EVERY game and every part of your device. I don't understand why Zeemote couldn't do the same.

I've had the Zeemote for a while now, and in general it works - I didn't have any trouble pairing it to my Acer Iconia A200, and it works OK. My problem with it is 2-fold:
1) After riding around in my bag for a couple of months, the grips became sticky. I had to scrub what had perhaps been a rubberized coating off with alcohol and GooGone.
2) The stick on this is an analog device. That means it's not just left/right/up/down, but rather a full range of motion. But if you are trying to play a game that's really written for a simple 4-way joystick (for instance, Another World), then you can run into trouble.

If you have big hands, be careful - this thing is tiny. It works for me, but just barely. Also, the D button is inconveniently placed (on top), and the C button is basically unreachable.

The analog motion is very good, and for games that use analog input it should work well.

For anything that might be classed as 'retro', find something else.

Bought this hoping to play quite a few mobile games with it. There are VERY FEW that support this device. Not sure how I missed that fact but I want to put that upfront for you now.

after a bit of fiddling with it and getting proper windows drivers I finally got it to work as a "nunchuck" to use in windows (its not exactly plug and play for windows). the nob is a bit small but usable even in fast paced games. the triggers are small but work after a bit of practice. Overall, its nice for FPS games that dont require a lot of buttons for use on the couch with a mouse on the cushion (for Steam Big Picture).

What a great concept. The Zeemote allows for Xbox type gaming on my Asus tablet. You can't play console type games on a tablet with your fingers. With Zeemote you can.
I've found a long list of Zeemote enabled games on the Android store. Deadly Chambers, Enborn X and Antigen are sweet. Most games cost a few dollars and some are free.
I take it with me traveling as the JS1 fits easily in any pocket.

I got one of these remotes in a gaming contest so for free it is great for me.

The pros of it: having a joy-remote is nice. games that can utilize it are fun. it's compact so easy to bring with you if you enjoy gaming on the go. feels durable and well constructed.

Cons: it uses AAA batteries so unless you get rechargeable ones being bluetooth, it takes a lot of batteries. it's compact which is a gift and curse. it's a little hard to handle at times, it's compatible with android devices only while I've heard some reports of it working with bluetooth enabled PC's, I have not had any luck. Small amount of games you really find useable with it. really only ball games such as golf or bowling.

Bottom line: if you get one at the right price then by all means jump on it, other wise, it'll find your junk drawer quicker then you'd like. meaning it's more of a novelty then a necessity. the lack of a rechargeable piece is a major set back in my opinion,

Wrap up: if you want one and at the right price then get it, other wise I think everyone can live without this one (Sorry Zeemote)
