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.

The way to fix this mess is to download the "Multilanguage Keymap Redefiner" from the Play store (It's free, no ads either). First, pair the controller in gamepad digital mode (Hold down the power button and X button until the LED marked 1 flashes rapidly); it should show up under bluetooth devices and pair without issues. Next install the keymap redfiner app and the gamepad will appear in the device dropdown at the center/top of the screen next to the app title (If it's been paired and the gamepad is powered up). It might say "INTERNAL-<number>", touch that text to get the drop down and select the gamepad (Listed as "IDROID:CON #1"). Click the button at the bottom that says "Add remapping" to go through the process of pressing a button on the gamepad and assigning it to a system gamepad key mapping.
The only reason I am giving this controller 4 stars is because I managed to find a fix for the issue, and given the hardware build quality and price it seems like a solid controller. Really needs a dedicated app or at least info on the process to fix the mappings since out-of-the-box it's terrible.
All buttons, toggles and analog sticks are very smooth. No buttons sticking; analog sticks return to upright starting position and the movement is fluid smooth! Top LED and middle (power/function) LED are just the right brightness; not distracting but bright enough to see. Controller has a nice rubber like coating that prevents slipping when sweating in the heat of action of pwning noobs. Directional pad is nice, tapping in one direction does not cause another to respond at the same time. I have large hands and the elongated controller grip is a real nice feature.
Battery life is terrific. Charged it the first day and been gaming for hours a day and haven't killed it yet! Charge time only took about an hour or so for a full charge. Controller will auto shutoff if not used for about 2-3 minutes. This is one great controller!! Windows finds it and pairs to it in less than a minute. You will not regret this purchase.
I COULD NOT get the keyboard and/or mouse modes to do ANYTHING. Those three modes were the main reason I even thought about buying this controller even after reading the reviews on Amazon, which had already made me pretty leery of buying this in the first place. I am happy that I bought this because now I know that it really isn't worth buying and doesn't work.
Needless to say, I AM RETURNING THIS!!!
Also, I doubt I will ever buy another product with this company's name on it ever again, ESPECIALLY after seeing their idea of an "FAQ" video and the support offered on their website.
Word of advice, if you're going to make a controller that you're going to market as "universal" and "flex-able" then you might want to do something like give the user some ability to control the functions of your device.
*cough*ability to assign keystrokes in keyboard mode*cough*
The absolute wrong way is to say, "this is how we made it work! It's up to the app makers to make it compatible."
