    I am wondering what Bluetooth controllers work with the emulators on a JB ipad mini? I know at one point you needed a wii mote and classic controller. Is that still the case?

    Unfortunately, BluTrol, as of 3.4-1, is still not compatible with iOS7. They've been promising an updated version for this month.

    there's a tweak called "controllers for all" in cydia that allows you to link up a ps3/ps4/ xbox? controllers and play MFi certified games with your bluetooth controller

    I've been using it on my iPad Mini with my PS3 controller and it works well.

    I don't think it works for xbox controllers. I might be wrong but I thought it was play station controllers. Originally it was only Dual shock 2 and the dev was trying to add the new dual shock controller as well.

    any PS3 or PS4 controllers that would work with this and are just simple media controllers? Not a full controller?

    Yup, but it's using native iCade support in these games / emulators.

    Not sure what that means.
    It only works for those NES emulators but not for other games?

    Can you, or anyone else, advise if this controllers for all tweak will work with the "GBA4IOS" app? With a PS3 controller?

    Thanks!

    Im actually going to test tonight. At first the buttons weren't mapped right but I read a post on reddit on how to maybe fix that. I'll report back

    fyi, I couldn't get my ps3 controller to work properly with GBA4iOS. I even "mapped" the buttons correctly within the app, but they just stayed where they were initially... i.e. circle button is start, right on D-pad is "A", etc. I emailed the dev of controllers for all to "report" it but it is likely a GBA4iOS issue. I've read online that emulators aren't necessarily updated to use controllers for all due to them not being "MFi certified"... I could be completely wrong about that, but I couldn't get my ps3 controller to map appropriately for this app. I hope maybe someone else has better luck and can "show me the way". :)

    Thanks. Guess I won't be spending the money on the tweak then as I don't think I currently have any apps on my phone that can use the controller.

    So only if the emulator has icade support huh. That's sorta disappointing.

    @Justinb51: fyi, the dev of controllers for all just released an update today that fixes PS3 and GBA4iOS compatibility. I just finished blazing through world 1 of Mario Brothers 3 using my PS3 controller and iPad rMini! :)
