DOES NOT WORK. DO NOT BUY
This is the first app that I'm actually requesting a refund on.
So, I did as instructed and downloaded and installed the driver for my Xbox One controller (wireless). Upon reboot, I was able to assign some keys, but not all. It ignored L2 and R2. Fine, I still gave it a shot. Inside the game, if I pressed forward ( I had assigned it to "w"), my charachter would jitter forward, then stop completley. What the heck?! It just stopped working.
More problems: when the app becomes active, I lose control of my mouse! It's ok, becase I was able to command tab back into this terrible app and quit out of it.
Next problem: You can't assign key combos. You want a button to be Command Shift? Too bad. You want to assign a button to Page down, but you have to press Fn down arrow on your Macbook to do it? TOO BAD.
Did they even test this app? DO NOT BUY!
D-Pad Mappings Fail
Some of the diagonal D-Pad inputs DON NOT WORK. Mainly down-right. All diagonal inputs seem to default to "Hat 1" which is the "up" input. Don't buy this when the developers couldn't bother to playtest this thing
Other reviews are lying
I'm on OSX 10.14 and I have bought both this app Gamepad Mapper and Joystick mapper. Joystick mapper did detect my controller, but in terms of actually working nothing. Gamepad mapper was setup in a matter of minutes and just magically worked. I could play steam games which are keyboard/mouse only with no problem.
My controller is a Switch Pro "compatible" wired controller (USB with USB C adapter) bought off Amazon for $20.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
