Really helpful and works great with Xbox and PS controllers - I’ve had some troubles connecting my Xbox controller, before I’ve found Joystick Doctor. The troubleshhoting section of the app helped me, by explaining all I needed to know, so I've succesfully connected my gamepad. Recommend the app to a friend as well, having a Playstation controller and the app could easily got it working as well. Most of my games have been working fine! II’ve only got stuck using my gamepad with a game on Steam, but the support team has responded me super-quickly with the solution. Thanks for this wonderfull app!
I had hoped this app work but it failed in flying colors... - I think in theory this could work. Joystick Doctor says the 360 controller drivers can be downloaded from GitHub. I checked out the site, my exstenions said it was a safe site. I downloaded the driver, to complete installation I restarted my mac. Upon logging back in I checked system preferences the 360 controller icon was there. I started to notice my mac was running slow, web pages took mins to load before it was seconds. To be on the safe side I ran BitDefender Virus Scanner, it's been scanning for 15 mins now and has found 60 different virus's. I would advise people to look elsewhere for 360 controller drivers, that being said I highly doubt my comments will be posted.

Awesome! - This is amazing. I have been trying to get an XBOX360 controller to work on my Mac for days, and I actually searched how to do so, and I found this application. I followed the instructions, and now I’m playing Super Street Fighter II Turbo on OpenEmu with a XBOX360 controller. Thank you a ton!
Great just get rid of the ads - Works great for modding controllers but dislike the ads for other apps.
SteelSeries Nimbus - If you want to verify your SteelSeries Nimbus controller is working correctly, this utility will work just fine. I like the interface.
No Controller Mapping - Do not waste your money if you think this app will do anything more than tell you if your controller is connected. Completely useless once downloaded it says they don’t have mapping services yet but soon. Completely useless the Mac OS already tells us if our controllers are connected, I thought this would help map controllers to help support other games. This is the fastest I’ve ever wasted $1.00 Also they have a few ads not intrusive or annoying but not worth it for what you get.
Great Solid App - Yes, there may be a couple popups at the beginning but nothings persistent. It does what it set out to do and it does it well, and for that I commend them. I would like to put out there that this does not support controller mapping (though they do mention its on their to-do list) it's mainly just a tester and guidelines on how to connect your controller. All that said it’s a great product, only a dollar, and if that's what you need then by all means you should give this a shot.
