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.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
