Video: WiiRemote to Control Android Phone

This Android application called Wiimote Controller is still in Alpha stage. It's might not work for every Android phone. Refer below list for the device/OS which is confirmed working and not working.

How to use it?
  • Turn Bluetooth on and run the app, then press the menu button and choose Keyboard Settings.
  • From here on out basing the majority of the instructions on the post over at
  • Enable "WiiControllerIME" (this should only needed once right after installation).
  • Now you'll need to pair the WiiRemote controller with your Android phone by "tapping the first button and at the same time put your WiiRemote in discovery mode by pressing "1" and "2" simultaneously".
  • After that, wait for the "Connected" message to appear on your screen. The first LED will turn on on the WiiRemote back in WiimoteController app tap the second button and select WiiControllerIME.
  • Apparently that's it! You can now fire up your games (or game console emulator) and play away (note, you only get key presses out of this app, you can't tilt the controller left and right to steer, etc.).
  • To disconnect, hold the power button on the Wii remote or simply turn the phone's Bluetooth off.
  • Also, don't forget to go into your phone's Language and keyboard settings and change your IME (keyboard) back or you won't be able to type.
