GameKeyboard 2.0 Adds Xperia Play Gamepad Support to All Android Games

Sony’s Xperia Play has been out now for quite some time and it can still be frustrating when you come across a game and the device’s built-in gamepad isn’t supported. If you are a Xperia Play owner I am sure this is rather frustrating and let me tell you, you aren’t alone. Enter LocNet’s GameKeyboard 2.0, the answer to all your Xperia Play gaming woes. As long as your device has root access, GameKeyboard 2.0 will allow you to map any game’s on-screen controls onto the gamepad instead. Setting up the app has been said to be a bit difficult the first time around but after you get the hang of it everything is smooth sailing. There is even an XDA thread full of experienced users who can lend a hand.

GameKeyboard 2.0 sells for $2.49 in the Google Play Store and if this sounds like something you’d be interested in, jump past the break for download links and to see a quick demo video of the app in action. I have a feeling this is what you hardcore Xperia play gamers have been looking for. If you end up checking it out, be sure to come back here and give us your opinion in the comments.

About the Author: Stacy Bruce

Stacy Bruce was born and raised in Spokane Washington. He attended the University of Washington to study pre-med only to change his course study a year later to forensic science. Although currently not a doctor or a scientist, some believe he posseses the knowledge of both. He was a resident of San Diego California for ten years, lived beachside and sometimes wonders why the hell he moved back to Spokane. A multi-talented man, Stacy is a fabricator, an artist, a gear head, a tech junkie and at most, the disciple of Casanova. Growing up, he was always enthralled with electronics, gadgets and gizmos. Throughout his life he has had one, if not two, of every cool and new electronic device available. He began his smartphone experience with the original iPhone. After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next. Stacy is a busy new homeowner in where he lives with his beautiful girlfriend and two dogs.
