Controlling Ankidroid with a Joycon

This post is kind of an addendum to my previous post, but it’s about controlling Ankidroid. You’ll need the app “External keyboard helper pro” (about $2). Here are the steps:

  1. Press the sync button on the Joycon and pair it with your Android device.
  2. Open “EKH Settings”, go to “Advanced settings”, “Keyboard mapping”, “Customize keyboard mappings”, and click on “Add new key mapping” for each button you want to map. For Example, I have SL and SR mapped to 0 and space respectively as in my previous post.
  3. Open Ankidroid and enjoy flipping your cards with your Joycon! You’ll have to set External Keyboard Helper as input method before.
