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.
Great index of games
Any game in the App Store that works with an MFI controller will work, even if it doesn't get listed in this app. However, it's nice to have a consolidated list of apps that I know are MFI compatible. When I got my first Nimbus, I used this app to find and download a ton of compatible games. Really convenient. Any other games I want to play with my controller, I just contact that game's developers and ask for MFI controller support 😉
The help/manual/FAQ parts come in handy too.
One suggestion/request: It would be super cool if the 'Updates' section showed my black controller in black, and my new white controller in white. …if at all possible. ⬛️⬜️✔️
Good Support for an excellent MFi controller
This app supports the Steelseries Nimbus controller. It's also got a listing of numerous games that offer MFi support, which may be of interest to some.
The Steelseries Nimbus controller is an excellent piece of hardware. Super long battery life, no lag, quality build. I've logged about 30-40 hours with it to date and have no complaints.
The app isn't going to blow you away, but it doesn't need to - it simply supports the excellent hardware.
