Xpadder is a tool utilizing game controller to simulate keyboard keystrokes and mouse movements & button actions, its basic functions are similar to JoyToKey. Although just a tiny app with file size less than 1 MB, its advanced features are extremely powerful.

The designer’s basic purpose is to enable you to use a gamepad to simulate keyboard & mouse to play many games that never support game controllers, in order to make all games get the utmost out of joysticks. While the fact is, there is no regulations about where Xpadder can be used, other use cases include: browse web pages, operate multimedia players, burn a CD/DVD, browse pictures, etc. Of course, it’s impossible to use a gamepad for typewriting (because there are not enough buttons). But except this, almost any other computer operations can be finished using a gamepad through Xpadder.

Most importantly, Xpadder has a very good performance using joysticks to simulate mouse’s movements and wheel scrolling actions, and the preset speed and sensitivity are very suitable for most of us. Of course, you can also set them in detail settings as required, so as to make the cursor’s movement more vivid.
