    As voiced by others this is a great app, I have been using Unified Remote to do the game keypad thing but this is much snazzier looking. However my Ramos i9 has a 1920x1200 screen so this currently sits in a small corner looking lost. Roccat if you are reading please can we have support for high res tablets and rotation please. More stars will follow if you can fixes the niggles.

    It still doesn't do anything really useful yet and it can be very awkward to setup and use. I'd like to be able to monitor my system temps while gaming and the only one I've come across looks like it's been written by a 1st day C+ day student. Also game support is very limited at the moment. I'll be giving up on it until it has more widespread support.

    Needs linux support for host. Text labels sometimes disappear when switching away from the app.

    This could be the single greatest gaming app ever created if Roccat does fully develop this app to it's full potential! I had it on my HTCone and now I have it on a re-purposed Coby tablet. I have the tablet mounted right in front of my Razor Nostromo for easy use! Thank you Roccat!
