Backbone — Next-Level Play app reviews

  • 10/10 5/5

    By MylesAway16
    Beautiful handheld addition.
  • New Idea 4/5

    By BricèaVision
    I have a request that I’m sure many people would like. Is there a possibility to add an on screen button mapping feature for game that don’t support controllers? I used to use a controller like that but it would be cool if you had controller support and button mapping.
  • Love it BUT… 5/5

    By Tikinbomb
    Love but it doesn’t work without wifi
  • Juan 5/5

    By helloj1x

  • Connection 3/5

    The connection needs to be stronger to the ps4. It disconnects frequently takes away the enjoyment of it ,but all it pretty cool gadget still recommends the back bone
  • Great new item 5/5

    By virgoboy504
    I love my controller
  • Add Genre filter 4/5

    By ultjism
    Add game library genre. As of right now, the only way of finding games browsing and filtering by platform
  • Missed my Expectations 3/5

    By KJ28269
    The PlayStation version of backbone looks nice and feels nice in my hands. However, the device does not meet my expectations when it comes to playing games away from home. There are limited games (at least games I like) that I can actually play on the go. Or there are too much taken for updates to download or filtering to really enjoy some games like Call of Duty. The only games I like to play on it so far are some compatible racing games. Hopefully, game selection will improve. Note: I have Apple Arcade and PlayStation plus subscriptions. I will research other platforms for game selection.
  • Subscription? Forget about it! 1/5

    By IKILGORE 83
    I ordered the Backbone last Monday and just got it in the mail yesterday. Solid looking controller and it’s very well designed. However…there’s a subscription fee that comes with it. It’s absolutely the most useless money grab that a company could ever offer.
  • Wanna play fifa 22 from play store 1/5

    By happyfeetjamal
    I can’t play my fifa 22 from play store and that’s the reason I bought it in the first place and I want it to work I even recommend it and they still haven’t upgraded it as yet bt otherwise it works well bt I love football with a passion so please after I can play fifa from the play store you’ll get your full five stars as it should
  • Can’t download 2/5

    By sacior67
    Not downloading the games from my PlayStation to the backbone like instructed
  • Backbone 5/5

    By Yungco25
    I love it no more to be said!
  • Definitely been needing this 5/5

    By Fecto Tapiyo
    Feels good in hands, I’ll be back after another couple months, to give thoughts on how the buttons hold up, but so far 👍🏾👍🏾
  • SCAM 1/5

  • Bad 1/5

    By 96yuglooc
    I don’t like to give bad reviews but I was promised free stadia nitro and arcade and have to record it
  • Started out great 3/5

    By Marche25
    Everything was going great until the recent update I play on my iPhone SE third generation but it constantly keeps connecting and disconnecting saying accessory not supported PLEASE FIX!
  • App not compatible with iPad. 1/5

    By QP206
    It advertises using the controller with other devices while plugged in, and it can work. However the app itself doesn’t, it just opens and tells you to buy a backbone instead of showing the whole dashboard like it would on your phone.
  • PS4 share button conflict 4/5

    By 123HKP
    I feel like sometimes the PlayStation share button and the backbone share button. So I aggressively tap my screen to access the touch pad. Am I using the wrong settings?
  • Doesn’t work with iOS 16 2/5

    By teejay2live
    Everytime I plug it in since updating it gives me this accessory is not compatible with this device. I have a 12 pro max
  • Not good at all 1/5

    By WillRTuck
    Was working fine at first, after about 1 month of use the left buttons on the controller don’t respond anymore. Controller is worthless now.
  • Great controller but never anything new to play 3/5

    By Mavrickhunter4
    It’s a great controller for the IPhone but the backbone app only ever has the same stuff advertised. Genshin Impact, CoD mobile, brawlawa, Xbox and PlayStation streaming. It’s really sad that almost nothing native is coming to the App Store that isn’t freemium gambling simulators.
  • It doesn’t work 1/5

    By I love gurls
    I don’t know if it’s my phone or the backbone but I downloaded the app and even scanned the box and nothing happens just a screen that says “connect your backbone”
  • You have to pay money 1/5

    By unknownguy632
    You have to pay money
  • Great, but…… 4/5

    By hike1970
    I’ve had my Backbone for quite a while now. I really enjoy playing on it. There is one issue that I am having at the moment though. I have the app on two different IPhones. One is the iPhone Xs Max that I only use on Wi-Fi (app and controller work flawlessly on it) that phone isn’t running the latest version of IOS or the app. My everyday phone, the iPhone 12 max pro is fully up to date along with the Backbone app, but the app will not open on this phone. Not by clicking the app or the button on the Backbone. It will not open with the phone in the controller or out of the controller. I am Backbone support is currently working with me to try to resolve this issue. I hope they can correct this. I don’t won’t to have to use this phone’s mobile hotspot just to play the Backbone on my other phone.
  • Love the product 1/5

    By Lupita.......ψ(`∇´)ψ
    But very disappointed with the unresponsive buttons…got very annoyed that it come in great but once I started playing it had its defaults. Idk what it is but the controller needs more work on its product if you buy it get the warranty for sure so you have time to test it out.
  • Wow , 5 stars ! iOS make all games compatible NOW! 5/5

    By rick;3$645

  • Upset 1/5

    By cuk🫶🏼
    I can’t seem to actually get it to move with the control on the games
  • Update it 1/5

    By sksiwiskf
    This app needs to be updated weekly or something. My backbone controller is losing connection and at some point I have no connection at all to it. And I gotta keep redownloading the app to make it work again.
  • To go where no man has gone before. 5/5

  • Subscribe issue 5/5

    By xenonan12
    I am unable to pay for the subscription when I have the money for it and my funds are well above what the subscription is. This is starting to piss me off. I would love this app and controller if my card would not keep getting declined
  • Need to be able to add other apps, remove promoted suggestions 2/5

    By dougc84
    The app is cool, but I never use it. Why? It’s handy, sure, but one game (Megaman X Dive) can’t be added to the list because it says controllers aren’t supported, despite the fact I use a controller with it all the time. The app itself is full of a lot of sales junk that I don’t use (or want), and cannot be pruned down. I paid $100 for a controller that can’t be used with a case and the need to promote additional ads and paid content, while also not being able to do the things it says it can do, makes this a useless app. I’d rather just keep a folder on my home screen.
  • Good but costly 2/5

    By back bone buyer
    Like the title says
  • Amazing 5/5

    By whereehegoo
    Best thing I ever got as a gift
  • Perfect gaming layout app 5/5

    By theNukaGuy
    Great app! Great layout and easy to find all accessible apps. In complete sync with the controller, I love it!
  • Future of gaming 5/5

    By Larsh Intonticles
    I’ve always hated mobile gaming. But then I realized stadia and Xbox were on phones, allowing access to real games on phone. So I picked this thing up and downloaded the app and it’s been a new world of gaming. I travel a ton for work, so this has been a godsend. Thanks backbone for streamlining and pushing developers and gaming companies to take cloud gaming seriously. I love these guys
  • Backbone 5/5

    By Wayne-O 394
    It’s the best portable gaming component I’ve ever used. I love that you can play either PlayStation or Microsoft on your device. You will need a strong Wi-Fi signal or you will experience some real lag since you’re streaming the games. The controller is slightly awkward but you get used to it. For the money, it’s one of my favorite purchases. 10/10 highly recommend!
  • Love it 5/5

    By fro1881
    Love it, just wish everything was compatible
  • DaaS? 1/5

    By Jamesmanone
    After you pay $100 for their (admittedly great) controller, they want another $50/year to subscribe to an app launcher. Imagine if you had to subscribe to the home screen on your ps5. It wouldn’t be so egregious if you could reassign the backbone button to something useful (like launching steam link) but instead they keep real estate on the controller you paid for just to taunt you. Honestly the app launcher should be a one time $5-10 unlock, not an $infinite subscription. I’m sure the developer is going to reply “Hey there! Backbone+ is entirely optional…” but this review is for an APP, not a game controller. If you look at the “screenshots” not a single one shows the app in an unsubscribed state. Without a subscription it’s just a firmware updater and controller tester, which is misleading at best.
