CCP: Custom Control Pad
UPDATE : Official Release Date 11/27/2013
Hi all !
for first time i'm on this forum to speak about an application instead of a game (and it feels strange..) BUT the application is actually game related somehow.
CCP : Custom Control Pad is the application, it will be very soon available on the AppStore as a universal app, and soon after we will release it for Android too.
With CCP a user can setup infinite "layouts" of buttons, labels, graphic elements , knobs, virtual joystics, midi in/out controls etc, and control a PC/Mac with it.
We started working on it to transform our touch devices in "Control pads" for the pro applications we use every day (3d software as Maya or Lightwave, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Logic etc...). You could have a photoshop layout with all your most used keyboard shortcuts, a layout for illustrator with different ones, one for final cut and so on. CCP on device will react to application switching on PC/Mac and switch layout accordingly. (example : working on photoshop and then switching to illustrator ). Buttons on mobile device can trigger all possible keyboard shortcuts, combinations and input types on the PC / MAC.
We where also working on a joystick application to control our future PC/Mac games so we decided to merge the 2 projects, in CCP you will be able to setup a layout with a virtual joystick, buttons, displays with info etc..
We will release a public SDK to send data from pc/mac to CCP on mobile device, so that applications can send info to ipad screen (time in Final Cut, brush size in Photoshop, console in unity). (modding/plugins can bring this functionality in many cases)
Developers will be able to set up from their applications or games layout appearance on CCP on idevice etc.. But can't yet say much about it.
Users will be able to export and share their layouts, (we are working on a centralized server solution to allow layout searching and downloading directly inside the application).
Users will also be able to create custom "Skins" changing every single graphic element of the layout (metal skin, wood skin etc.)
Here are some example layouts to control different applications and a game (Kerbal Space Program) .
(WARNING : graphics are unfinished, beta version etc....)
Final Cut Pro X
Kerbal Space Program :
Really hope you'll like it, and we would love your feedback, which applications and games you think it will be most useful for, your favourite shortcuts etc....
Thanks for your time !

thanks for the feedback and comments !
I will be at UNITE 2013 later this month , so you can contact me to have a talk / demo of CCP in use and what it can do for your games !
And here is an example of CCP in use with EVE online :
We are approaching release and have managed to include in version 1.0 joystick support, so now you can add to your layouts joystick axis and buttons !
Here is an example with Kerbal Space Program Layout :
As you can see there are also "Analogue gauges" in the layout, those work trough our API and a very fastly made plug in for Kerbal Space Program, developers or modders can easily add support for them (and many other things) to their apps and games !
All feedback is more than welcomed, and suggestions will be very much appreciated and taken into serious consideration.
We finally have a release date for CCP Custom Control Pad : 11/27/13
We have also made a trailer for it :

CCP turns your iPad or iPhone into an extension of your computer’s controls, helping you optimize the way you operate complex programs, play games, and everything in between!
The power is in your hands. You are free to create inputs that instantly carry out complex commands, decorate created GUI layouts as you need - feel free to share the skins you make too - and even send and display data in real-time right on your CCP interface.

Established commands (i.e. Ctrl + Alt + Del) can be re-created as single-button commands as well.
Since CCP is capable of receiving data from your computer in real-time due to a handy public API, you can go above and beyond simply creating enhanced controls, and customize the actual programs or mod the actual games you love to show program or in-game data right on your iPad!
