How To Use Your Xbox One Controller With Your Mac.

In the past, we’ve shared how you can use your PS3, PS4, or even your Xbox 360 controller to play games on your Mac. Now we’ve finally found a way to use your Xbox One controller to play those same games.

Guilherme Araújo has come up with an app that allows you to use your shiny Xbox One controller with your Mac, and he’s posted the source code, and even a compiled version of the app on GitHub for your enjoyment.

The application communicates with the Xbox One Controller, and uses a Virtual Joystick to simulate the controller.

Araújo says the USB communication is done using Apple’s IOKit framework, and the controller is polled every 5ms looking for changes in the controller.

He warns that the app is in the beta stages, so there are bound to be games that won’t work correctly with the controller. Just let him know about issues you run into. He’s concentrating on usability and compatibility for now. Additional controllers, automatic connection, bells and whistles will come later.

iCade Jr. Arcade Controller Discounted to $9.99.


ThinkGeek has discounted the iCade Jr. Mini Arcade Cabinet for iPhone to only $9.99. That represents 80% off its normal price of $49.99.

The iCade Jr. was originally launched in January 2012 at CES. It represents a smaller iPhone/iPod Touch sized version of the original iPad-sized iCade. Like its big brother, the iCade Jr. connects to your iPhone or iPod Touch using Bluetooth. This model was originally designed to fit the iPhone 4/4S and 4th Generation iPod touch form factors, but is said to work with the iPhone 5 “if you leave the top lid hinged back”.

The controller has an arcade stick, four front and rear buttons and works with existing iCade-compatible games.
