After the controller is enabled you can use it with games and mapping tools which support native controller (e.g. GTA Dead Trigger Shadow Gun GameKeyboard).
NOT ALL DEVICES AND AFTERMARKET CONTROLLERS ARE SUPPORTED AND ONLY WORK WHEN CABLE IS CONNECTED.
If it is working with your device please share the information in comments otherwise please get a refund and report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. The #1 reason for failure is an incorrect/incompatible cable if the app cannot detect the controller please go through the troubleshooting section.
2. Another common problem is insufficient power provided by the device in this case an external powered USB Hub is needed.
3. Finally incompatibility mainly come from lacking Sixaxis support from Firmware without rooting the only solution is waiting for a Firmware updated.
General Troubleshooting Tips
1. make sure your PS3 controller is working with the USB cable properly when plugging into a PC windows should detect and add it as new gamepad although windows won't response to button press.
2. make sure your OTG cable is working with your device test with an USB keyboard/mouse if possible
3. make sure nearby PS3 (or any other devices you have paired with the the controller) is powered off otherwise the controller may try to connect with those device through Bluetooth instead.
4. if you have ever installed any other apps which can work with PS3 controller directly you may need to uninstall them.
