YAY! Notification to open Gamepad But i found a bug i think! I'm running AOSP Android kitkat 4.4.4 but 'Permanent' notification isn't permanent really. It vanishes away sometimes if i quit keyboard. It happens randomly though. Great app nonetheless!

Pretty good :) Great for cheats but made everything other than the game a little slow. :S
