Important: Joy-Con Enabler Pro requires root with SuperSU. If you don't know what "root" is, then don't purchase Enabler Pro. It won't work without root!

- Invert Analog Sticks
- Use Joy-Con Capture Button as Android Back Button
- Use Joy-Con Home Button as Android Home Button
- More features under development.


- Games & Emulators may require In-Game Remapping.

Google Play Reviews

  1. Spark Box-avatar

    Imagine it: an app designed to let someone use both joycons together in games, apps, and others, yet you have to BUY the pro version to actually do that. I really feel like if we're already able to use one joycon to scroll through menus and play games with, we really shouldn't have to pay to use the other one.

  2. XmasPlays-avatar

    This app is bad why do you have to pay for a pro controller you will be better of saving money and buying a real one take this game down and if there were a option to put this to 0 stars it would be there

  3. Kevin Balino-avatar

    I have a rooted tablet and have tried to get this to work but it doesn't, your app doesn't do what its supposed too.

  4. Brayden Becker-avatar

    Stupid app, i paid money for the pro version on my Android phone and it didn't work. When I went to refund it it wouldn't let me have my money back. I will never download again.

  5. Syed Sahaf-avatar

    I've rooted my phone and even after buying the Pro version it doesn't work.

  6. Gaming master Goku-avatar

    Gaming master Goku


    It is a good app but why do you have to buy the pro version why not make it free it would be much easier to do that and you would get more people to get the app.

  7. Ryan Borkowski-avatar

    I tgought that this app would let me play games with joycons, but apparently you need to pay for that feature. Would install if there wasn't a paywall.

  8. Melissa Wang-avatar

    It kinda works, except it doesn't ask for root access, which means it ends up not working at all. I can't even grant it by default. I tried both Magisk and the standard SuperSU. Maybe I need to install non-systemless, but it sounds like it would be easy to roll out a fix. But it also looks like the dev hasn't updated in years. Shame on me for spending the money I guess

  9. A Google user-avatar

    I think the app should be free. I was annoyed when I found out the app, such as this one, were not free and the other option is certain cables. You let the apps one free feature be to test the joy cons. That is literally the purpose of the app. I'm trying to be positive, but really, one feature. Just make the app cost money in the first place!

  10. Blue Berry-avatar

    I bought the full version. It does connect, but the latency... oh god, the latency. I think it took about 1 second in between when I pressed a button and when it registered. Needless to say, this was abysmal. I tried using it anyways, and every rebindable app just didnt recognise the input. Dont use this. Get a controller grip or something instead. Edit: Imagine requiring someone to root their phone to use a controller enabling app bottom text

  11. jonathan m-avatar

    this app doesnt tell you anywhere in the app itself until after you have purchased the pro in app purchase that it requires rooting. the only way you know is if you click the read more on the app description and even then it is halfway down the page. i paid for the pro but didnt get around to trying it until now so it is too late for my money back. i am sick and tired of apps requiring rooting in order to use them. if you can fix this problem i will give more stars. also put disclamer at top.

  12. Matheus Andrade-avatar

    Matheus Andrade


    Doesn't work on my rooted device. All the controls are inverted and won't work. I'm trying to get a refund but no idea how, terrible app. I might contact google about what occurred.

  13. Tommaso Cirillo-avatar

    Tommaso Cirillo


    The app doesn't work, while in the test the joycon are both recognized, after activated they are seen as two distinct joystick so are unusable! I neither know how to ask the refund for it!

  14. Nomgracc-avatar

    WHY do u need to buy the pro version like make it free it's not hard and also why isn't there a amibo card thing I really want a villager get out of my village becase there is a "pro version" don't get this smh

  15. A Google user-avatar

    I think we shouldn't have to pay to use both joy-cons. This is the core functionality. You get this app to use your joy-cons, but there is a paywall. The paywall should be for things that doesn't affect the gameplay. For example, the capture button as the back button. That should be payed for not the basic use of the app.

  16. JP-avatar

    Advertised as being able to pair both joycons together to play games but they then ask you to pay for pro if you want to use said advertised feature. As long as I'm concerned this is misleading advertisement and will be reported to the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards board and will be taken down if the owner of this app does not: 1) Make said advertised feature free to use as intended per it's description. 2) Provide the appropriate correction to misleading content in the description.

  17. Full Retard Jacket Cinna.-avatar

    Full Retard Jacket Cinna.


    A dubious lack of proof combined with pathetic greed ruins any merit this should have. Although I have tested it for myself to confirm it does work... The requirement for root (which shouldn't really be needed, for apps that already support gamepad input that is.) Limits your already small audience and definitely raises the question of "why not just buy an Android controller for like 20 bucks on Amazon?" find a good one and you have a reliable controller what doesn't need root for what this does

  18. myqueen beautifulness in and out-avatar

    myqueen beautifulness in and out


    The app does work you just have to Bluetooth your Joy Cons and buy the real thing in the app it self I will give it five stars but it was just a testing not the real thing

  19. Ulysses Prisma-avatar

    The app should be usable, with a try it feature, not like a fake free but not working if not purchased it

  20. Emmanuel Warsley-avatar

    Emmanuel Warsley


    the app wanted to collect my credit card info and password in order for me to reset my phone so this app can work. Uh No sir fix it the app you created. it's like you trying to steal my information by resetting and accept it. I brought the app just a sec ago to go pro. but found out that it wanted to collect my privacy data info on my phone to work. I need a refund right now!!

  21. Andrew Marrasquin-avatar

    Andrew Marrasquin


    It's not needed tbh. all u need to do to connect your joy com's to an Android is to go into your Bluetooth connections, press the button on the side of the joycons and hold, and then the scan for devices button on your Android and then you'll be good to go. no apps required. just your Android and joycons. so any apps that say they "enable" joycons is an absolute lie

  22. Karma Krew-avatar

    Misleading and garbage. It just shows off how it can test your buttons, and also HEAVILY advertises the fact that you can use 2 joy cons with one and input them into an emulator or other game, even though to do that only thing you downloaded the app for you have to pay money. I spent enough money on a Nintendo switch, and I dont have alot of money and poop cash like everyone else seems to do, and I also dont appreciate getting ripped off and scammed by some ******* who wants to do this.

  23. Blight Tana-avatar

    The Reason I loaded it was to try to use the "Pokeball Plus" Switch Joycon as a controller. But it seems they have a different protocol than the standard Joycon. I don't own a switch the reason I have it is for pokemon go but it would be nice to at least also get use out of the thumb stick and buttons for other games too

  24. Sarah G-avatar

    App doesnt work at all. I just kept getting error nessages.

  25. M-bird-avatar

    This app sucks. I wouldn't even give it a single star.. maybe alright if you pay for pro but I'm not doing that. Not when i already have a controller i can use anyway. Sheesh, i just wanted to use my joycons for a change but it looks like THAT isn't happening with THIS app... If i just wanted to test my joycons i'd just use my switch 🙄

  26. Wolfy The Cute Wolf YT-avatar

    Wolfy The Cute Wolf YT


    I mean it works but when I press the A button it disconnects for sometimes can you fix that. But other than that its AMAZING!!

  27. vencil bozarth-avatar

    If you want someone to pay for an app then market it as such. Nowhere in the description do I see anything about in app purchasing, I understand the need for funding and do not mind that, but if you need this app funded then have it as a payed app, or use Patreon to fund the development.

  28. Berix A-avatar

    It connected to the Joy Cons just fine, but the input lag was horrible. There was a full 1 second delay between pressing a button and getting a response, making this app borderline unusable.

  29. Johig88-avatar

    Absolute trash. Can test joycons in free mode. Paid version doesn't even work. Actually breaks being able to use joycons since after closing out the app they work open and enable it and they quit again. Thankfully Google was very quick about the refund.

  30. Shaun Phoenix Manalo-avatar

    Shaun Phoenix Manalo


    Why do I have to pay and it is so expensive to buy to pro version which is very annoying

  31. Alex Hill-avatar

    This app is so greedy. It makes you pay to use features other than testing your JoyCon.

  32. ajro-avatar

    You have to let this have access to what you type, which doesn't make sense at all if its for something that doesn't need your keyboard. Not only that, but you need to buy the pro version to actually use this. I don't recommend this.

  33. LQ Lammeter-avatar

    Bruh this is like what everyone wants but then you have to pay to make the controller actually work on games .. I wanted to play COD mobile with my joy cons... BUT NO this stupid terrible app won't let you without playing

  34. Clever Username-avatar

    Clever Username


    You have to pay inside the app to use the joy-cons together. Either make the app cost money first or make it free.

  35. Smallgod-avatar

    This looks like a scam to root your device but after paying and fiddling with it for 10 minutes, it works!

  36. MooMooCow1562-avatar

    Hey, I had to look up what rooting is and I had accidently bought the Joy-Con Enabler Pro before hand and would like to know if there is a way I could get a refund due to the fact that I don't really want to root my phone at the moment. Otherwise this app would probably work perfectly, so i'll give this 5 stars just because.

  37. BlueMane18-avatar

    It works But you need money to play games and emulators

  38. A Google user-avatar

    The app works, but the controls are delayed. Instead of the two joycons being used as one controller, they're acting as if I'm playing two player. Can you fix this issue? ...Thanks.

  39. Kayla Corson-avatar

    Have to buy pro for 5 USD before being able to do anything outside of this app. Also need to root your phone.

  40. Logdog18-avatar

    Honestly didn't realize you needed to root my phone to use this, the app never even mentioned it. It's only present in the play store description, which who is even going to look at? I asked for a refund, but of course, more than a week later, no response. Come on! I'm sure you could have done better that this! Well apparently not, much disappointment

  41. Mike Doe-avatar

    Unable to test. Don't like the idea if having a non refundable in app purchase just to find if it works in a way thats not usable. Consider a timed trial or a separate app that can be purchased directly.

    It don't work idiot do it right idiot I don't want my character to move anymore make it work idiot

  43. Andy Hoffman-avatar

    It didn't say anything about rooting the device except for halfway through the description on this page... I had to look hard for it. I didn't realize it until after I bought it. My refund is pending.

  44. Kody Porter-avatar

    Why in the world can I TEST if my controllers will work but not use them outside the games? if you were gonna charge just charge money for the app! wasted my time and I wouldn't have wrote this review if it weren't for that stupid fact

  45. Joshua Burlison-avatar

    Joshua Burlison


    No where in the app description or inside the app does it tell you that you need root access in order to provide functionality. Shady developers and tactics. I want a refund.

  46. ArachnoVolt-avatar

    Connecting my joycons to my phone was relatively simple. However, it keeps saying it needs root access. Is that supposed to happen?

  47. Kleptoz2-avatar

    Do not buy Pro. Pro doesn't help. This app is very unstable. Plus the dev isn't even working on this anymore.

  48. Bellis Wingclaw-avatar

    Works. No if, ands or buts. And im not rooted.

  49. Aaron White-avatar

    only works if you buy the pro version, which it then tells you only works if you root (jailbreak for Android) your phone and then i cant find the option to refund the $6

  50. DJ_DubieWubie-avatar

    To use the joy cons together, you have to pay. I don't like to see that. A least make the actual app payable and not have a separate in-app offer to make you pay.

  51. Josh Beaumont-avatar

    Please make a no root version that takes advantage of overlay. I know it's possible because of the octopus app. That app just doesn't enable using joycons.

  52. Ger Zar-avatar

    It doesn't make sense that we half to pay. It is like buying a game and only getting the box art

  53. Matthew Turner-avatar

    Doesnt work at all. Dev had it set to IAP so you cant refund. do not buy this.

  54. Shane O Donovan-avatar

    Shane O Donovan


    Not worth the money. Phone had joycon lag and right trigger wasnt working. Cant refund because it was an in app purchase as opposed to an app.

  55. SandMan 32145-avatar

    It it advertises that you can use the joycons together but then they ask you to pay to be able to play with them connected to each other

  56. StarStripe-avatar

    it needs an in app purchase to work, so no refunds. It sneakily scams you by saying you need to restart your phone, plus no one really reads the description.

  57. A Google user-avatar

    It connects to the pro controller! I had no problems at all. it works very accurate too!

  58. Akira Carter-avatar

    Perhaps the name of the app should be changed to Joy-Con Tester for Android, as to not mislead people. You have to pay money to enable Joy-Cons with this app.

    Nothing works It sucks and you can tell by the rating 1.2 stars that is why I rate it no stars if I could so 1 star ahhhhhh

  63. stormRed1236-avatar

    Didn't know it required rooting, I have no desire to root my phone, hence I wasted money on what I wouldn't hesitate to call a cash grab. Clearly my fault for not reading the reviews :)

  64. Zhou Xi-avatar

    wasted my money and time feels so sad, after purchased it turn out need to root, just controller mapper didnt know need that much, is anyone can use it after rooted im doubt it.....damn....ruined my first shopping experience at google play

  65. Zack Niel-avatar

    Rooted. It's not xinput, no moonlight or steam link support. Just acts as a digital input

  71. Josh Lyman-avatar

    While I'm sure this is a good app, it is unfortunate that it requires your phone to be rooted.

  72. Nupane4sale-avatar

    Get it working without root and this review will go from a 1 to a 5. Otherwise, total waste of 5 bucks >:/

    Waits until after you pay to tell you that it requires a root to work.

  79. S-avatar
