You need to download the Sixaxis app from the Google play store but first I would download the Sixaxis Compatibility Checker to make sure your device is compatible. Next you are going to want to download the Sixaxis pairing tool on the computer. You can find that at dancingpixelstudios.com or just click there for the Sixaxis tool.
