This app works but is pretty outdated and crashed for me using a SNES USB Adapter. There is a new app that works better and is only a buck here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/joystick-show/id515886877 Also, works with usb gamepads.

I mean, "also works with BLUETOOTH gamepads"

Very simple and useful!

One problem, however. For some reason the program assumes half the menu items are Japanese and nothing I can do can alter that (though I can figure out what is what, it is pretty annoying). It also manages to convince some other apps' menus to be in Kanji... (but this goes away when J> quits). Pretty odd behavior.
As far as specific ratings for Features/Graphics & Sound, as there's only one real feature and no real rateable G&S, I didn't give it 5 simply because there's no real things to rate.
It seems pretty stable except for the language issue.
And you can't beat the price. Though probably worth a couple of bucks, put this together with an interface/PPane that will allow you to assign Keypresses, menu selections, and mouse movements to the gamepads/devices, and this could easily be worth $20-25. (mainly because I have tested many such interfaces and most are far from stable, or are horribly unusable (keypress assignments only).

I wanted to test out this product with a Thrustmaster device, and it not only detected the joystick, but every button (including the programmable ones).

This should be built into the System Preferences, and a wonderful tool.
