This app allows you to create custom keypads or keyboards that you can use to control your computer over the network from your iOS device. You start by creating a keypad layout, which includes buttons and other controls that you can easily arrange and customize. Then for each control, you define which actions to send to your computer when the control is touched. Actions can be keystrokes, such as keyboard shortcut commands, or mouse clicks such as the left, right or middle mouse buttons. Once you are connected to your computer, simply touch the controls on your keypad to control your computer from your iOS device!
A SIMPLE EXAMPLE
For example, the keyboard shortcuts for copy, cut, and paste, are common to most programs. So using this app, you can create a simple keypad layout with three buttons, assigning each button to one of these keyboard shortcuts. Then with your new keypad, you can send copy, cut, or paste commands to your computer, just as if you were typing directly on your computer!
FOR WORK OR PLAY
People typically use this app to increase productivity by creating layouts that control software on their computer. Many people use this with software such as Photoshop, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, CAD, Sibelius, web browsers, games, and more. Basically any software that has keyboard shortcuts can be controlled with this app!

Ratings and Reviews
Really Great app
It seems like you're just adding buttons to trigger key strokes, but the depth of this little app is pretty fantastic. I created a multi-page interface for a game I play that I otherwise would have to hunt and peck for. I put together a background image, put buttons over certain spots (made them invisible so that they would not cover the background button images) and connected it to my PC. Bam!! Works like a charm.
Couple notes. I used TightVNC. The install is pretty easy. Then opened the command window and typed "ipconfig" to get the IP address of my system. Not something that seemed very well covered on the website for the app. But after that, the options are extensive. If you can get it hooked up, you can get the rest working and have a nice custom interface for your games or work.
Wonderful app that does exactly what it says. Perfect for making a custom gaming controller or a pad to gain efficiency in whatever you do. One thing that took me a while to figure out was making a connection to my computer, but all you need to do is download TightVPN on your computer. The reason this is missing one star is because it needs the ability to map mouse movements to a joystick so I can play games like they're on an XBox controller. It would also be great if there were vertical and horizontal sliders with the option to have them lock in place or return to the center when not in use. Keep up the good work!
Exactly what I was looking for in terms of function and custom design
I am able to create an elegant interface of custom controls for each application including my own graphics. Knocked it 1 star because the general procedures were not documented well. I found myself going back and forth down paths looking for information. You should not have to navigate to a page with merely one sentence then back out. Navigating instructions is far too linear to be practical. At least provide an aeriel overview and one that can be used as a shortcut for navigation even better.
