amazing but just needs 2 things

Steam link is just absolutely great and i love it so much!! im able to play The Forest and Friday The 13th and its just so amazing but theres just one problem. i am unable to shift/Run when i play with my buttons on screen so it would be great if there was a button or maybe having to double tap and hold the joystick and is it possible for us to be able to play with our laptop offline and maybe being really really really far apart from our laptop because something like that would be really helpful when trying to play from another location on your phone instead of having to play while your at home 🏡 and okay now this will be the last thing i promise haha but um is there any possible way that the buttons on the controller can be customized in their size because if i have a small phone i wanna make sure i can see a lot of the screen and sometimes some buttons just cover most of the screen so if you guys could cover these things it would be amazing. Thank you so much for your time and you guys are doing amazing so keep at it

You broke Xbox + PS4 controller support on iPadOS & iOS 13 in the latest update

When iOS/iPadOS 13 beta first launch the app worked flawlessly with Xbox and PS4 controllers but the recent update seems to have broken something. I realize this is beta software but loads of people are eager to get their hands on that sweet Xbox/PS4 controller support, so it’d be great if you could fix it while the OS is still in beta!

Basically, it is now asking to setup both controllers immediately when opening the app by mapping each button, but it crashes on the final button (start) and also won’t let me map the guide button (which I know is probably an MFi limitation, but still).

I wish it would just work out of the box like it did before and recognize these controllers similar to the Rotor Riot controller. I realize I’m using beta software hence me only knocking the stars off my review temporarily by one, but I need that sweet Xbox + PS4 controller support back! I’ve had a taste of it and can’t go back now. Tested this on the newest regular iPad and the iPad Pro from 2017, both with the same result.

Lacks Native Support/ Touch Screen

For me the only controllers I own are some Xbox controllers. The problem is the lack of support for touch screen. I used to play a lot of touch screen games when I was younger. Now that I’m older; I’m fine playing them casually in another room. However, when trying to play games I found myself having no easy native controls. With me having to mingle with each game. This app works perfectly. If you have good internet and a good computer. The result is very visually appeasing with close to no lag. To me steam should have built some more features. Like remote using of the PC. Like being able to use mouse and keyboard mode on the computer with steam minimized. You are able to do this as I clicked out of the game and had remote access of the PC. Additionally PC remote controls like turn on from sleep or turn off. I’m aware that other programs have these capabilities; Integration of these services with steam link would be a very impressive way to get people using the app. Overall very satisfied. Would recommend to a friend.
