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.

It’s just what you need

This app has the names of all the Compatible games, I haven’t gotten the controller yet so I don’t know much about it but most people only review it bad because it doesn’t work for their game. That is most likely not SteelSeries Fault it is probably the games fault. It does work with big name games like Minecraft, World Of Tanks Blitz, Terraria and more other big company games. It’s the games fault that they have too many different buttons, or the games fault that it doesn’t hook up to Bluetooth Controllers, not SteelSeries fault. It’s compatible with all the games I like except Roblox but that makes sense. Everyone who gives it a bad review is giving it that for a bad reason, this app has no ads! Who even wants to play Fortnite (That was Sarcasm for you guys who really couldn’t tell, But really it’s not that good compared to Minecraft people!)!?

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!
