    I just picked one of these up. Anyone already figured out how to customize the controls? I'm at work and won't be able to play with it until tomorrow. I have Shadowgun and Riptide and want to see how it does with those games.
    Thanks

    Edit - The Gamestop I went to had a Prime on display but none in stock.

    My review.
    The controller works great. Paired easily. One thing Android treats it as an input device so it becomes the primary input device when connected so you keyboard is disabled.
    I had Shadowgun locked using Applocker and could not unlock Shadowgun with the pad connected. No big deal.
    The controller itself is responsive. No BT lag at all. In Riptide you can configure the controller. It seemed that Riptide would not recognize some of the buttons but I didn't play with it too much. I mainly wnated this for Shadowgun type games.
    Documentation is lacking and no software came with the controller.
    Build feels solid but not quite as solid as a PS or Xbox controller.
    Overall it is a good 7 out of 10 on theandies ranking scale.

    FYI- My local Gamestop didn't have instore pickup so I drove about 25 miles to one that did. I used my BT GPS receiver and Sygic map app and it spit me out right in front of Gamestop.
