Okay, so I’m going to be the first to say that while the Turtle Beach Atom Controller is awesome, it’s a little bit confusing to setup. For example, when you’re holding the controller out of the box it’s attached a little funny, but without getting to rough with it, it basically splits apart easy.
Connecting Atom Controller
Now once its split apart you will likely need to charge it for a good 20-30 minutes to make sure it’s juiced up. After that you should download the atom app from the playstore as it has a list of games available and firmware updates. Do not skip this part, because the app will come in handy later on.
Next, connecting this controller was a little confusing as well. And basically, you first need to make sure it’s turned on by touching the button on the top left. After that you need to hold down on 2 buttons on each side of the controller to make sure each one is turned on. The right side of the controller asks you to hold down on the menu button. Yes, since this is a two-piece controller, they turn on separately and it took me a minute to figure this out.
Lastly you just need to connect this controller in your Bluetooth settings, by tapping the small button on the bottom of it. however, if both pieces of the controller are not turned on the Bluetooth will not pop up.
