abunda_amazon_reviews Compared to my awful iOS experience with IPEGA controllers, setting up this SteelSeries controller on our iPads was a dream. Just put in the batteries, turn it on, and it pairs without a problem. Download the SteelSeries app (which you're prompted to do by the OS) and away you go. My kids are happily playing Minecraft and the Lego games with it after literally 2 minutes of setup. I never even had to open the manual. My only complaint is that I've never been able to make the controller work with any games on my iMac, even though it pairs just fine. But this may be Steam's fault. It sees the controller in its options, and I "added" it there, but the actual Steam games never seem to be able to detect it. I don't have any non-Steam games that use gamepads, so I can't say if a non-steam OSX game would work with it.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Works Great in iOS, but has Steam Problems in OSX;;Keith Goreham;;;I communicated directly with the Manufacturer.
