CobaltController Updated, Now Wiimote Supported!

A few weeks ago, we reported this application called CobaltController, which allows you to control your Windows Phone by using a bluetooth Playstation 3 controller. Developer and XDA member Cobaltikus recently updated the application to version 0.2, and was able to get it working for Wii controllers too! So, if you have a Wiimote, you can now control any game on your Windows Phone! You can, for example, use the controller for the Playstation emulator FpseCE, so you can play any PS 1 game on your phone with a Playstation/Wii controller. A video example of this can be found on Youtube.
In the first version, only devices with a Widcomm stack were capable of running it, but as promised, Cobaltikus added Microsoft stack compatibility, so now nearly every Windows Phone can make use of these awesome features. Although, there is still no user friendly interface, it is really worth the time to set it up.

Prerequisites – what you need before hand:

  1. A windows mobile phone. I have personally successfully tested this on a Sprint Touch Pro2, Unbranded HTC HD2, and a Verizon Touch Pro (Wii support not yet available for Touch Pro).
  2. A Wiimote, or a PS3 Controller and a way to either set the phone’s bluetooth mac address to match your PS3, or the controller’s master address to match your phone’s bluetooth mac address. I have included instructions on one method of doing this but it kind of sucks and I plan to make it easier unless someone beats me to it. See below in “Attachments” for instructions.

You can find more information in the applicatiion thread.

ZenFone 2 Lolliflash and ZenPower Giveaway!

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device.
