The Gamepad Reloaded

A while ago Ada Rose Edwards and myself reported on the state of the Gamepad API in Samsung Internet 4.0, and given that time flies when you’re having fun, a prompt update is due. We have recently released an open beta for the next version of Samsung Internet (5.4) which, amongst other changes, enhanced our support for gamepads. We are going to retest all the controls from the original tests and add the joy of a special surprise!
