Great controller, Improved software excution,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MOGA Mobile Gaming System for Android 2.3+ (Accessory)
I have had this controller for a day now. I am really pleased with the controller in the games. It works flawlessly with my games, and makes controlling the game far easier. I was concerned with all the reviews complaining about having to repurchase games they had already purchased. I do have this problem currently with Nova 3, I did not have it installed on my Tab so downloaded it again in hopes that it would be recognized. It was not, but I also had Riptide GP on my tablet already and that was recognized by the Moga app. This points to more of an individual app issue then a problem with the Moga app. I will give the developers (Gameloft, etc) and Moga to fix this before I consider this a major issue. I have noticed that when you go to buy the games through the Moga Pivot app it sends you to the developers website for purchase, not the Play store. This is the problem, because if it sent you the Play store the record of the app purchase would be there and could then update the Moga Pivot app accordingly. This again leads back to the developer of the game causing the issue, they should be driving the user to the Play store not their website.
Back to the controller, it works great, it is a bit front heavy with a phone in the clasp, but having my heavy Amaze 4G does not help. The fact that I can put a Note 2 in there when I get makes me extremely happy though. My 5 year old son picked up the controller and started playing Sonic was very excited and really enjoyed his play time with it.(He was very sad to see it go with me to the office this morning.) I would recommend this controller, with this caveat, give it some time for some of the bugs to be worked out. Being an early adopter of tech is not for everyone, as you can see by the reviews here.
Update: I have now had the Moga controller for 2 weeks, and love it. PowerA has already announced a fix for the games not showing up which should hit tomorrow. I also received a work around until then from their customer service. As mentioned in other reviews, there is now the Moga Universal ap that allows the controller to be used in all games with mapping. I am moving my rating to 5 stars as this controller no fits all my gaming needs for my Note 2.

Thanks for the useful info.
However i have another question since I own a Note 2 as well.
What i wanna know is , if I can fit this controller with my Note 2 while it's in it's case?
I have this case in particular and I am concerned it may be a bit too bulky for the controllers liking.
Here is the link to the case:
Urban Armor Gear UAG-GLXN2-BLK/BLK-VP Composite Case with Impact Resistant Bumpers and Screen Kit for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - Black
Appreciate your help.

The clip expands to just under 3 1/2 inches. You will want it to be able to collapse a bit, so that it can hold the phone correctly.

Let me get this straight, so you mean to say that once you fit the Note 2 you can expand the clip to another 3.5 inches in length?

Nope, that is the total you get for the clip. The Note 2 is 3.2 inches wide, the clip expands to just under 3.5 inches. If your case fits into that size you should be okay. I find its the thickness of the case that can cause an issue, as it can hamper the clip from holding on tightly.
