Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good build quality
For a device in its price range, the build quality is pretty darn good.
Pro First party app available
There is a first party app available for the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R and all other Mad Catz GameSmart enabled devices.
Pro 3rd party app support
There is a third party app that allows for customization of the inputs on this device. It is called Game Controller 2 Touch, and has full support for the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R Mobile Gamepad.
Pro 3 modes of use for varied use
There are three different modes for this controller, the first is a mobile Bluetooth mode for Android devices, the second is mouse mode that turns the analog sticks into vitual mice and the third is PC mode which is compatible for PC games.
Pro Uses replaceable AAA batteries
There is a user openable compartment in the back that holds the 2 AAA batteries. These should offer up to 40 hours of continuous game time before they need to be changed out.
Con Mad Catz A.P.P. is useless
Apparently the first party app available for the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R is just a bunch of pictures of products and offers zero functionality to the device.
Con Dead space in the joysticks
You can push the joysticks a bit in any direction without any in-game response. This makes it harder to play fast paced games that require accuracy (such as FPS games).
Con Only pairs to one device at a time
You can't - for example - have it paired to both your phone and tablet. Whenever you want to switch devices, you will need to re-pair it.
