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.

Gamepad turned doorstop The control itself works, but the app is pretty much useless. What good does keyboard and mouse emulation do on a touchscreen phone? I mean, really? This app doesn't even deserve the one star I gave it. If anything, it deserves negative stars. Of course, this app has many other similar alternative versions of it self, and it's not alone with being put in the trash. This app needs touch screen mapping for each button, including the analogs, that you can assign for each game or other apps WITHOUT ROOT.

L2 button not working For some reason the L2 button is not working on my Playpad pro. I use the controller to play Modern Combat 5 and the L2 button is to "Scope Aim". Anybody that plays this game knows how useful the "scope aim" is. Then I ran across this app thinking I can change L2 to a different button that does work. After doing that, I'm still disappointed that I can't use the changes that I did to my controller profile.
