When Android launched Ice Cream Sandwich back in October 2011 it was very unattractive, muddled and disorganized, but Google has never stopped dabbling with Android’s design and now it has evolved into a significantly cleaner, more subtle operating system.

Android as an OS is as complex as Microsoft’s Windows or even Apple’s Mac OS X. While Android usually works without a hitch, every once in a while you will need to reboot it, clean up all the junk files and remove unnecessary files to make sure it is running at its optimum level, just like you do on Windows or Mac.

Instead, you can use a simple app to make a gamepad out of something we have in our pockets all day, every day — our smartphones. Mobile Gamepad is a great way to do that. It’s completely free, it’s easy to set up, and it has a bunch of unique features.
