some apps don't like third party controllers. one of them is nintendont. it's a good way to know if what you have is even legit, but it sucks if it's not. there may be a way to get it to work, but I've never used those apps. I think all my controllers are legit too. got some sticky shit on the princess peach wii remote, and I finally got it off. it didn't seem to hurt it though.
