What does it consist of:

November 2020

Ease Joypad is an application that facilitates the use of smartphones and tablets for people with handling difficulties, since it allows the device to be operated through a game controller, button, etc.

The application only needs an internet connection to download it and to complete the purchase process. Once the purchase is validated, it can be used offline.

NOTE: If a button is to be connected, there are two options:

  • Connect a pushbutton that has two outputs.
  • Connect two pushbuttons, each one with an output.

In addition, to be able to connect the pushbuttons it will be necessary to have an adapter, in this case the BJ-805 has been used but you can find other similar ones available in the market. It will also be necessary to have an adapter with a female USB port to connect the BJ 805 (or similar) and the telephone.
