I have recently purchased a gamepad2 and in general terms I am very satisfied with it. I have 2 concerns:
-8gb of the internal memory is very short. In the web of gamepad they talk about something alled app2SD that theorically should allow us to move any app or game to the microSD. Unfortunatly it is not so good, only some games are able to be moved, so the 8GB anyway will be full very soon. As a workaround I have been using folder mount (root required). It is an app that enables you to create logical links from a folder in the internal memory to a folder in the microSD, so the system will use it transparently but the data will be in the microSD. It works fine, but with one problem, the folders linked with folder mount only are read accesible, so most of the games work, but some games that need to write something in their data folder, will fail, for example max payne, spiderman, evernote.... I have been talking with the developer of the app, and he doesn´t seem to find any solution. The app works fine in other models of tablets. The problem is that the microSD is something like "emulated", if you navigate with a file explorer, you will see what I mean, the microSD is mounted in a folder called emulated/0.... So, do you know something about this emulated staff?, Any idea what could be done to solve the write access problem using folder mount?. If we were able to solve it, it would be great, because we could link the whole andrid/data folder with a folder in the microSD, so every game and app will automatically be installed in the microSD instead of the internal memory, saving lots of space in the internal memory.
-The other thing, I could swear that I was able to remotly control the gamepad 2 from my phone using the remote control app. Unfortunatly I had to reset my gamepad 2, and now the app in my phone does not find the gamepad, although it works fine with my old archos 101 internet tablet, any idea what can be happening?.
Now my opinipn about the device. In general the device is almost perfect for me, the controls convert the tablet in a console, nothing more to say, the experience is like playing in a console. Games that directly you don´t even think about playing with a normal tablet take another dimension with the controls. the only tiny problem I see is the performance, It runs fine almost every game I have triedm but the feeling I have is that the games doesnt run as smoothly as they should in a device that is to play. Even the 2 games that come with the device make me the same feeling. So the problem I see is that in the near future the most demanding games will start to run badly, and it is a big shame.
Best regards and thank you in advance.
