No big/semi-big title games?

Nimbus isn’t compatible with big title games like Fortnite Mobile. Not even PUBG!! Not even Creative Destruction, even though it’s a fairly new game but I mean that’s not the point. The people who run the Steel Series company need to be on top of this stuff! I don’t want to play blocky arcade games which seem to be the only compatible games with the Steel Series Nimbus, I’m sure some people in their 30’s enjoy those games but most gamers are in their early 20’s and those 3 games I mentioned earlier are a must. I hope it’s not something the developers of those games forbid ya know? Like them saying it’s not fair if people use controllers on a mobile game. If that is the case then my apologies but if not please please fix and make the Nimbus compatible with these games!

Best Wireless Controller for Apple Devices & a Great App to Boot

First of all I just wanna say that this controller has worked FLAWLESSLY with every game I’ve used for. There is ZERO DELAY when pressing the buttons or using the joysticks & d-pad. Also the pairing process is ridiculously fast and easy to the point a monkey could get it done.
Now to address all the negative reviews that as usual are coming from ignorant people who like to complain and cast a negative shadow on companies without doing any research on the matter. If the controller isn’t supported by a specific game then it’s THE DEVELOPER OF THE FREAKIN GAME that you should be griping at; not the makes of the controller. Fortnite for example wasn’t compatible with ANY controller because Epic Games made it that way. Now that’s changed and guess what, I can tell you using this controller is a flawless experience. PUBG still doesn’t have controller support though, so before you start blaming these guys and throwing your 1 star reviews around in your ranting, you might wanna take that up with Tencent because it’s their choice and no one else’s. Get educated. The more you know. Take care.....

Don’t Recommend for Nimbus+

[Update]: So their tech support gave me instructions for hard resetting my device, an iPhone 12 Pro which I’d specially told them what I was using, for a non-all screen device (simultaneously hold Sleep/Wake and Home button) running iOS 12. 🤨😨😑🙄 Proper steps for hard resetting still didn’t help, and the simplest of things for them to update their app to recognize their new product just is t something they’ll consider. So, I’m leaving this generous 1 star review (should be zero or in the negatives). If you have an original Nimbus and it works with the app, great. Unfortunately, I still can’t recommend purchasing a Nimbus+ for iOS, iPad iOS or tvOS because they’ve obviously abandoned this Companion app software in favor of their Engine software that only works on Macs/PCs leaving folks without those products in the dark.

[Original Review]: App won’t recognize Nimbus+ that’s successfully connected to my iPhone or iPad. Only way to update the firmware for the computer troller is to download software into a Mac or PC, connect controller to Mac/PC and run critical update. If the developer isn’t going to support their newer MFi devices through their app, they’re worthless. Would give zero stars if I could. Don’t recommend this product for folks without a Mac or PC. 😢
