Introducing TouchSync - The Future of Gaming with Backbone

December 22, 2023  •  3 min read

We know the frustration of finding a favorite game on the Google Play Store that doesn’t support controllers. Despite our efforts to keep an updated controller-supported games library, the disappointment is palpable when a beloved game isn't controller-friendly.

Introducing TouchSync Controller Mapping

Imagine being able to play your favorite touch-only games with Backbone One. That's the promise of TouchSync, our latest addition to the Backbone app on Android. TouchSync cleverly maps controller inputs to specific touch points on the screen, enabling controller support for previously incompatible games. Watch @SevyPlays test it out on Genshin Impact!


The TouchSync Features

  • Universal Compatibility - TouchSync was built to support a wide range of screen resolutions and ratios to work seamlessly with most devices, with more devices becoming supported daily.
  • Curated Controller Maps - TouchSync provides pre-built controller maps for supported games and game modes, making it easy and accessible for everyone.
  • Dynamic Game Integration - Games compatible with TouchSync will seamlessly blend into our home screen, offering a familiar experience for our users.

TouchSync is in Beta

Our focus is now on guaranteeing compatibility across all devices and adding additional games to our supported lineup. Adding new titles is a complex process to ensure seamless compatibility across all devices. We’d appreciate any help identifying issues with TouchSync so we can fix them ASAP. Use the Submit feedback button in the Backbone app settings if you encounter any problems.

Groundbreaking Games with TouchSync Support

We're excited to announce that PUBG: Mobile and Genshin Impact are the first to receive TouchSync support. With more games on the horizon, our team is working tirelessly to expand this list, though it's a complex process to ensure seamless compatibility across all devices.
