Issue Using Joypad Legacy on iPhone/Mac W/ OpenEmu

I'm hoping someone could help me out with an issue. I connected the Joypad on my iPhone and iMac without an issue, but when I go to press the buttons on the screen on my iPhone, it triggers mission control on the Mac, and not the game that is currently on the screen, which when tested, was Super Mario Bros. On OpenEmu. The D-Pad works ok, but the buttons don't control the game.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

You need to go into Joypad Connect settings on your computer and make sure that the controller's button configuration matches that of the keyboard controller configuration in OpenEmu.

Also, if you swipe on your iPhone's screen, sometimes it will perform certain functions on your iMac such as open Mission Control; I haven't yet figured out how to get around it, but running the emulation in full screen seems to help.
