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.....

Poor firmware, update on your iPhone???

I have attempted to update this controller on my iPhone & iPad on numerous iOS versions both will pair normally to the device but the companion app installed does not recognize them being connected, I have restored both devices only to re-download this useless application in an attempt to update my controllers firmware. I am having issues pairing multiple controllers on AppleTV in an advertised multiplier game "PhoenixHD", but with no ability to update firmware other than to pair them to your mobile device?? This is silly. Why is there not a companion app for the AppleTV or Mac, I feel these controllers are used more on those platforms despite all the mobile compatible games I'm not carrying a controller around when the phone works great as a mobile controller. Please add a way to update firmware via lightning cable with iTunes on Mac, or via companion app on AppleTV. To connect a controller to a device it is not used with, that can only access wireless connectivity, to download a firmware update just doesn't make sense... At all. Let me guess it will need free storage space on the device to swap the files? Yeah... Broken.
