A few games will recognise USB controllers automatically. There are also some utilities on the app store that will let you use a controller with other games by mapping keys or mouse functions to the controller.

I'm using a free app with a generic USB controller and some console emulators at the moment and it works fine. I think there is at least one app that claims to support XBox controllers - but it costs money.

Yeah, i've found a app on the app store that supports xbox but it costs a little.
But what are you using?

GamePad Companion is what I have been using, along with a generic Mad Catz controller. It was free software when I downloaded it a few years ago - but I just had a look and apparently it now costs money on the app store.

I have been using it OK with some emulators but if you have to pay for it now then I wouldn't recommend it. It doesn't cope very well with anything involving analog controls.

Remove the mac. Get Windows. Problem solved :3
Actually though, since I have no clue what to do with a mac, I can't really answer for you. However, last time I checked, Xbox controllers go on an Xbox.

You can use Xbox controllers on windows since it's both Microsoft. Hell, most games require it be a Xbox controller if you want to use a gamepad.

I figured if anything should accept an Xbox controller, it should be Windows.

Now I don't mean to be pretentious, but have you tried simply plugging it in?
