The app turns old Android phone into a Bluetooth Gamepad for virtual reality headsets based on Android.
It is required to install this app on two phones:
– VR Controller (old phone)
– VR Headset (new phone for VR games).
The app does NOT require root permission.
This VR Controller is compatible with Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR and other Android VR headsets.
It is optimized for “blind” use while wearing VR headset – all buttons have a larger hot spot areas with vibro feedback and the navigation pad works like a physical stick.
Watch setup instructions on YouTube video or below:
1. Start this app on two phones (new and old).
2. Pair phones by Bluetooth.
3. Add and enable new keyboard on new phone: VR Controller Keypad.
4. Connect VR Gamepad on old phone to the new one.
