Playground is a free app compatible exclusively with the PlayPad and PlayPad Pro from Nyko Technologies that allows you to find, download and play controller compatible games. Playground will scan your device and find games already compatible with the PlayPad in HID, Mouse or Keyboard mode. This way you can easily find, launch and download games that have been tested for the PlayPad.

Want to customize your controls in advance mode? Just select that tab to see a list of installed compatible games and you’ll be able to easily assign keyboard and HID commands to specific buttons on the controller. This is an ideal way to take games or software that only have Keyboard support or limited controller support, and easily transfer control to the PlayPad. After customizing your controller setup for your favorite game, you can easily save and create new profiles.

If you experience any issues or need help setting up the PlayPad, PlayPad Pro or Playground, please do not hesitate to contact us at 888.444.6956 and a Nyko customer service representative can help resolve any issues you may have.

Please Note: This update does not include any touch mapping support. Nyko’s original solution for Touch Mapping was made incompatible following the Android 4.1 update. We are still examining if it is possible to do touch mapping within the current version of Android. We will update further if and when we discover a working solution.

Thank You:
Please continue to send us your feedback and any issues you experience as it helps us to improve the Nyko Playground experience. Expect more frequent updates from us in the future.

    I have erased my very long, very negative review because something awesome happened, my epsxe emulator can actually sense the trigger button L and R 2 now! Very happy that it is working, and that after all this time they finally delivered. Phone- LG Motio
