Do you want to turn your PlayStation and Xbox controllers into a remote control for your Mac? This can be achieved with an APP on your Apple Store, Controlly.
Controlly from the developer of the El Trackpad program. The second lets you turn your iPhone or iPad into a multi-touch trackpad that works with a Mac. But with Controlly, you can use PlayStation and Xbox controllers to control your Mac.
