Joy-Con Enabler Pro allows you to test & use your Joy-Cons together in Android Games and Emulators. It takes inputs from both Joy-Cons individually, and combines it by emulating the Game Controller which can be easily recognized by Android. Works with almost every Game with Native Controller Support. Compatible with all Android Versions. No Custom Kernel required. You can test the JoyCons without JoyCon Enabler Pro.

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!

Extra Features:

- 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.
- Reduce In-Game Sensitivity if facing issues.

Want to buy the PRO but it doesnt let me, Please fix this

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.

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.

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.

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

Unable to test. Dont like the idea if having a non refundable in app purchase just to find if it works in a way thats usable. Consider a timed trial or a separate app that can be purchased directly.

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.

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

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 🙄

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

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.

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.

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

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!

Does. Not. Work. Doesn't work. Even with the pro version. Deserves its current rating

Doesn't work at all. Controllers become far LESS functional than without this app.

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.

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!!

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

This app sucks ass. Worked at first and bought the pro version, now it requests for me to root my phone which I don't want to do. Give me a refund!

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

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.

Pro version is not needed. Please add the availability fir the IR camera for the right joycon.

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.

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

Why do you make a tool like this and then have people PAY for it? My devices isn't rooted, but if it were I would just use other sources for controller support that is Free, not THIS app. why would I pay for something I can get for free elsewhere. at least it works well.

Allows joycons to work on Android without lag and no root.

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

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

So dumb. You have to buy "Pro" to even use it in other games. Are you frelling me?Just give me hope and rip it away.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

The only thing I can do is useless to me I wanna test w games not a little menu maybe add a time limit so I can see what I can do in games

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 :)

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

You can't use it at all without paying through a paywall. Not worth it.

Free version is completely useless. App requires purchase to use Joy-Cons as an actual controller.

the app says "root access was not granted" even though I restarted my phone 6 times

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

realy? face ads? the controllers ore Bluetooth anyway

It tells me something about root access and I can't use it with my stuff. There is no info on what to do with "root access"

dont buy pro unless you hqve root access. fails to tell you that before purchase.

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

Ask me to upgrade in order to use em as soon as u open the app. If I would know before I wouldn't intall. Advertisements just to get u to install and make money off you after they get your hopes up. Who ever develop this is completely pathetic and a scammer

doesnt do what it says, requires overpriced "pro" app for actually maki g joycons into one controller



BUYER BEWARE!! SCAM! Dev has made app cost as an in app purchase, instead of through play store, so refund isn't available if it doesn't work with your device, what a scam!

Worst you have to pay for it not recommended

nice app but you need to pay to use in other apps that just beats the purpose of the app

This app sucks... Why would you make people pay to use this... The people who made this app are more interested in filling their pockets and not their customers

Not working on pro controller

you have to buy it after the fact, if it was upfront, then I would have paid


Is this app make me play switch games without Nintendo switch joy con because when it say open Bluetooth menu to connect joy con I just wonder is I should connect switch joy con with my tablet please answer

How can I even check if it works properly without buying pro version 1st...

why do you need to buy it! this is false advertizing cuz it says its free when it really not!!! dont buy!!!

It wont work unless you have a controller with bluetooth unless i am wrong

Have to buy and root your phone in order to use it. No point in downloading

The actual app is behind a paywall...

Horrible. Didnt work after i bought pro. Dont buy this.

it's good that you can test but it's stupid how you have to pay for the thing to actually work.

Its more like a joycon test app i would give it zero stars if ot was posible

Laggy and doesn't work well at all

terrible it doesn't even work you have to pay £4 what's the point in this app

Terrible input lag.

Just wasted $5 and found out you need your phone to be rooted in order to use this damn app

can't work on honkai impact 3rd, no maping and must be rooted

Doesn't tell you that your phone needs to be rooted before purchasing.

id give less stars if i could absolutely a waste of anyones time and money dont buy or even download


very garbage, massive input lag

looked like what i needed i installed it and to my disappointment needs you to pay 5$ please remove or make the app cost 5$

Why do you have to pay for the app to work in it's intended way

i want a refund, i tried using my joycon and it does absolutely nothing... don't waste your money... this is a scam

you have to pay $6 to actually use your joy cons with games

I cant connet this to my switch

need to pay for feature advertised

oof this is not lag its something else I couldn't test it

meh its whatever. nothing ground breaking.

4.69 to the be told that the device requires root. this is not acceptable and should be told before purchase. I want a refund

have you guys fixed the lag issues?

Scam app. Careful you could be hacked this is made by a very sketchy Indian.

cant even use it on games

Hello, I recently bought the Pro version but I do not want to root my phone so please could I have a refund?

horrible. i even paid for the stupid enabler and nothing happened.

This sucks I just wasted 10 minutes just to find out I can't use it?! No sir no

can you transfer my pro licence to your keymapper app?

so your gonna come over here and tell me it's free then tell me I gotta pay to actually use it.

don't pair at all and the app sucks in quality.

You must root your phone to be able to use this apps features

what a trash. There should be (root) in title...

in app purchase scam, refunding through PayPal

you don't give us access just because of money!?!?!

is the app safe if I install the full version and what have access to my phone?
