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.

Great App, useless without an MFI

I am so happy this app exists, I love being able to take my entire Steam library wherever I go. The versatility is so great, and it’s so much fun being able to play wherever I want with my friends. My only complaints are that the connection can get kind of shifty, but that’s to be expected with a cloud streaming app, so i don’t really give much fault to that. The other, and more major, one is that unless you have an MFI or some kind of controller, this app is pretty much useless. The touch control registry for most of the games is nonexistent, and they only truly work with some sort of external controller. I have one and it works great for me, so I live using this app all the time, but unless you have some sort of controller or MFI, this app is useless.
