Joypad Legacy

Joypad Legacy is an app that turns your device into a wireless controller for your games that you can play on the iPad, PC or Mac. In order to play on your PC or Mac, you will need to download the appropriate software at After you launch the program on the computer, you can launch it on your device and it will automatically connect. If by some reason it doesn’t connect automatically, you can connect it manually by finding out what the IP address is in the app by clicking the gear which needs to be entered in on the computer.

This comes with preassigned configurations, but for any other game you will need to enter those manually. It worked very well, and you won’t believe how great this app is. You will notice some very bad reviews. There are people complaining about getting charged for some things, but that hasn’t happened since the NES and Sega Genesis gamepads which some are saing that they were charged. There is no solid evidence as of yet. This was tested with the Space Cadet pinball game that is included in Plus 98 and even Wondows XP, and it was very easy to play the game without any difficulty.

Price: Free

Version discovered: 1.6.0

Requires: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad; iOS 4.0 and up

Download size: 10.7 MB
