Ratings and Reviews
This is a wonderful app that I’d be willing to give a 5/5 to but I’m on Windows and: click & drag doesn’t work, there’s no option to lock modifier keys (alt, ctrl, shift) and in custom layout the scroll up/down mouse button doesn’t keep scrolling (you have to keep tapping it). These are all functions that work in other keyboard apps. Please fix this.
Some features missing, still in progress
I was expecting to see a joystick of some kind. I was thinking just an object which measures the distance, along two or more vectors, between the center of the button and a simple object; and a threshold (positive and negative) for each of them.
This object will position itself beneath the center any inputs (usually just 1, the finger) and instantly return to the button when there are no inputs within the area of the object.
Also, I have to turn off multitouch gestures in iOS whenever I want to use this app. It is annoying. I have always wondered why my random apps would have a switch to turn off multitouch gestures, and this app constantly throws me to the next screen when I'm in the middle of a game.
I would like to see these few features added, as well as an lcd screen like is on some keyboards m but I sense that would be a while out.
This is AWSE!
I am a gamer, and I was about to drop $60 on a Razer Nostromo gaming keypad. But I decided to set my regular keyboard up in the Nostromo layout so I could practice with it until I could afford the purchase. Then the idea hit me to download a remote keyboard app for my iPad so I could use it as a discrete device. But when I found THIS app with the customizable keyboards option?! And not only that, but even using custom icons in any layout you want!?! This just became a wireless touch version of the Nostromo, only better, for $57 less! Great app, functionality is awesome, love the customizable mouse sensitivity and even ability to disable "tap clicks" (which work GREAT on this app, but sometimes are a huge pet peeve of mine). A+++ on this, guys! :D
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
