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.

GARBAGE I was very nervous to run this app seeing all the problems people have posted with this app and controller, well the app didn't cause problems, and the 1st controller doesn't work anymore. I have since bought 2 more, neither work. Screw you Nyko

Here's how to get it to work.( DONT UPDATE FIRMWARE IF IT WORKS WITHOUT IT) First you pair the Nyko playPad through the Bluetooth in your settings . Now turn off the Nyko playPad it should still show up on the list of paired devices. Now open the Nyko playground app click on sync controller it should say controller paired NOW, turn on your nyko play pad and the sync controller button you just pressed should change to controller synced. And bam! Remember it has to be in HID mode. Once it is synced you can even switch the controller to mouse pad mode and even use it as a mouse.

Update your firmware I was very nervous to run this app seeing all the problems people have posted with this app. The instructions are simple, pair it, update f/w then unpair it. That means open your Bluetooth menu and click unpair. Until you do that THE CONTROLLER WILL NOT WORK!!! Also, DON'T INTERRUPT THE FIRMWARE UPDATE, IT WILL TELL YOU WHEN ITS DONE. DOING SO WILL CORRUPT YOUR CONTROLLER. My controller works freaking flawlessly. I love it.!! Thank you Nyko!

Love the controllers but I have bought multiple Nyko controllers and all work great and for their price they are complete steal. I read the comments of the so called gamers and surprised they haven't figured out the problem is the software not hardware, stop blaming the controls and someone please fix this app and the software. Love the play pad and pro , they feel great depending what game I'm playing, I used little one for more casual games and pro for more demanding game. To bad the app doesn't live up to greatness of the hardwa
