Nyko Playground

Nyko Playground


Playground is a free app compatible exclusively with the PlayPad and PlayPad Pro from Nyko Technologies that allows you to find, download and play controller compatible games. Playground will scan your device and find games already compatible with the PlayPad in HID, Mouse or Keyboard mode. This way you can easily find, launch and download games that have been tested for the PlayPad.

Want to customize your controls in advance mode? Just select that tab to see a list of installed compatible games and you’ll be able to easily assign keyboard and HID commands to specific buttons on the controller. This is an ideal way to take games or software that only have Keyboard support or limited controller support, and easily transfer control to the PlayPad. After customizing your controller setup for your favorite game, you can easily save and create new profiles.

If you experience any issues or need help setting up the PlayPad, PlayPad Pro or Playground, please do not hesitate to contact us at 888.444.6956 and a Nyko customer service representative can help resolve any issues you may have.

Please Note: This update does not include any touch mapping support. Nyko’s original solution for Touch Mapping was made incompatible following the Android 4.1 update. We are still examining if it is possible to do touch mapping within the current version of Android. We will update further if and when we discover a working solution.

Definitely works! Follow the instructions from Ramos Essai! I got this app awhile ago, back when I had an S3. It worked for awhile, and for playing ROMS, it was fun. Then it mysteriously STOPPED working, and I could never get it functioning properly again. It was probably a combination of things. I was using a flashed and rooted device, and I think that flash caused issues throughout my phone. At any rate, a previous user wrote a review on how to use it, so I tried it with my new Note 4 and it totally works. Ya gotta sync the controller with your phone's bluetooth first, then turn the controller off. Then load up the NYKO Playground app, and THEN turn the controller back on. You do that, and you shouldn't have any more issues with it. This controller and the app combined with being able to broadcast the screen of my phone to my Samsung HD television = amazing, full screen retro gaming at its FINEST.
