Mobile gaming has got massive success over the past few years. Players can enjoy high-quality games with the advancement of technologies and graphics. Various streaming services such as NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Xbox Game Streaming, etc., offer you to enjoy AAA gaming titles on your smartphones.

Support for physical controllers on smartphones is still a major issue for mobile gamers. There are several mods and supports for certain controllers. Although, they don’t give a seamless experience unless you are using a streaming service. Also, big games like PUBG don’t provide support for physical controllers. So, here comes Mantis Gamepad Pro.

It is almost impossible for apps/games to detect “Touch Mapping execution” as it uses Emulated Touch Injection which treats it similar to physical touch inputs. But Mantis makes it possible.

To avoid cheating, Mantis doesn’t provide any option to add Macros. To enable pro-level gaming on Android, it supports all your next-gen controllers
