Gamers can now use touchscreen technology to create custom controllers and joysticks

Pisa, Italy --- Game developers Frozen Pepper  have announced the release of an app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch designed to change the world of gaming. CCP (Custom Control Pad) allows gamers to use their mobile devices as an extension of their keyboard by creating virtual controllers, joysticks and keyboard that can control either Mac or PC games and programs. Custom Control Pad app is currently available for download on the App Store for special launch price of $0.99 in the Productivity category.

Users of CCP can create and save multiple controller layouts/skins for use with different programs and/or games. A variety of traditional interface elements are available for each layout, including joysticks, knobs, buttons, slide controllers and many other GUI elements. Established keyboard commands (like Ctrl+Alt+Delete) can be translated into single button commands. Further, CCP receives data from users’ computers in real-time via a public API, allowing the user to customize and mod programs/games to show program or in-game data on their iPad. Default skins and layouts are included in the app for those who do not wish to create custom controls, but simply wish to control their computer remotely via wifi. CCP was designed for Pro Applications and works with all PC and Mac applications which use a keyboard (or joystick) as an input source.
