Joi enables you to play games that do not have gamepad or joystick support. Such as online games or even desktop games. Just plug-in your gamepad/joystick via usb and then start Joi. It's as easy as mapping the keyboard keys that are supported by the game to the axis and buttons of your device, then saving the game setting. It can even run behind fullscreen games!

Joi supports usb gamepads/joysticks that are supported by Mac OS X. Other gamepads/joysticks may work but are not officially supported. Joi does not support mouse emulation.

Gamepads tested and known to work...
• ThrustMaster Digital 3 via USB
• Logitech F310 via USB (switch to "D" on back of gamepad)
• Retrolink N64 via USB
• Retrolink NES via USB

Want to make sure your gamepad/joystick works with Joi before purchasing? Then get "Joi GamePad Test" from the PoseMotion website!

If you have an issue, please use the PoseMotion support forum, thanks!

The Tester app is what clinched it for me - They have a free app you can download from their website so you cab test your device before you buy. The app showed my gamepad worked, so I bought this app. Saitek Cybork Command Unit in Bioshock. Not all buttons can be mapped (app is limited), but that's a minor thing. It works.

Doesn't Work well - I just purchased this to use an older gamepad which does work…but only for a minute and then you have to go select and deselect it in the app. Very annoying when you are trying to play a game and have to stop every minute. I hope I can get my money back.

Perfect!! Just disable App Nap - So I originally wrote a negative review on this app, but I forgot to disable App Nap for Joi. For those of you having trouble, open the “Applications” folder in Finder, then highlight “Joi”, press Cmd+i, and then check “disable app nap for this application”.

Works great with Logitech F310 controller - I got this app to use my new Logitech F310 with Dolphin emulator for GameCube ROMs. I was really pleased with how easy it was to setup. After some quick key mapping in Dolphin, I was playing within minutes. I have OS X version 10.10.3.
