Could work better

i like using my backbone to play games on Xbox game pass. however, there are some persistent bugs that decrease the quality of my experience. sometimes when i click a game, it brings me to the game page but at the bottom, so i have to scroll all the way back up to see the game. also when i click into an xbox game that doesn't exist on game pass, it will bring me to xbox home without any error message so it's pretty confusing and a waste of time to keep trying to figure out why a game isn't loading. there are also games that show up on the backbone homepage xbox section that are not actually in the xbox section or playable. i have also wanted to pin a game to my recently played by pressing the backbone button but there is no notification or indication that the game has been added. all these little issues add up to worsen my overall experience. if the backbone team spent time to really polish it up, i would give this 5 stars. as of now, i like it and it works ~80% of the time but it's a bit frustrating to use

D Pad Button triggers by itself and makes gameplay impossible

Backbone support hasn’t gotten back to be about this bug so I’m returning it through Amazon and will try getting a different one. I’m not sure if this is app/bug related, but it’s very disappointing and makes playing games impossible. The right button triggers by itself randomly, despite being up to date and fully charged

Disconnecting every 5 seconds

It was ok at first and would only disconnect once in awhile but now it is frequent i did everything they said I updated my phone and the app but still won’t stop disconnecting I have not dropped the controller so I don’t get it

When I’m using the controller sometimes it just spams random buttons when I’m not even pressing anything idk if anyone else is experiencing that problem but it’s a little frustrating but besides that it’s a valid product.

Very good, especially with controlers

It’s Christmas time and my grandma is leaving to go to Missouri five states away from California and that is going to be before Christmas day so she got me an early Christmas gift and it was the Backbone controlers. I’ve been download the app and I have nonstop been playing it for around four or three days and I really really love it and I would just like to say, the Backbone app is goodbye itself but especially with a controlers it’s really good.

Love it but needs one thing…

I love my backbone, I use it for Apple Arcade games and also to remotely play my Xbox Series S… this thing is an absolute beast.. the only thing I wish it would do is if I delete games, it should automatically take them off my top game list.. i see no purpose on it being there if I no longer have the game.. still 5 stars though !!!

Took 49.99 from me!

I forgot I even had a backbone controller! Then today out of no where 49.99 is taken from my account. I bought my backbone controller November 28, 2021. It’s been over a year. Did I have a year free trial? If even changed my Apple Pay cards since then. I don’t understand backbone. I have already requested my refund! Junk! I’d like to have my 74.19 back for the stupid controller since this has hit at the worst possible time!
