Beginner Android Game Controller Help

So I was following this guide along and everything makes sense. The end product is a bluetooth device acting as a keyboard that can transmit "w, a, s, d" for pc movement controls. But I want to be able to adopt this for android/ios. On these platforms all bluetooth controllers seem to work with all apps that have built in controller support. So my question is then what do I have to do to remap the pins on the EZ Key bluefruit device (or other blue fruit device because ez key is discontinued) to get a gamepad to work seamlessly on mobile applications?

The BLE devices can work as wireless keyboards, but you’ll need software on the Android device that knows how to convert the key codes to game control.
