Because Sixaxis Controller is a premium software, you need first check its compatibility with your phone using the free Sixaxis Compatibility Checker app. To check whether your phone is compatible, simply press Start in the compatibility checker.
The app will run a compatibility check if you’ve rooted your phone. If the app is able to provide your phone’s Bluetooth address, you’ll know if it’s compatible. It also displays a compatibility confirmation dialogue box.
Continue to the next step with this Bluetooth address in mind (you’ll need it later).

Aside from rooting your phone, you’ll need to set up your controller as well. By prepping your PS3 controller with a PC tool, you may make it compatible with the Sixaxis app. SixaxisPairTool is an option provided by the app’s developers.
Install and execute this programmer as an administrator on your computer. There is a Windows version as well as a controller pairing tool for macOS and Linux.
The straightforward programmer displays a little dialogue box with the Bluetooth address of your controller’s master device. There’s also a spot where you can replace the master device. Continue by entering your phone’s Bluetooth address (as provided by the compatibility checker). After that, the application will install the necessary drivers for your controller.

The connection is successful when the app’s dialogue indicates Client 1 connected. By hitting buttons and moving the sticks about, you can make sure everything is working. The program should reply by moving its selections according to your buttons.
Now all you have to do is fire up a game that accepts gamepad input and have fun!
