IMPORTANT NOTE: This app will be discontinued this week. It is being replaced by the new universal and improved app KeyPad Plus available for download for free. Please proceed to downloading KeyPad Plus instead.

Some quotes from reviews of KeyPad Pro:

"Ok, IMO this is the most productive app on iTunes. Period."
"Wow! Does exactly what it saids and haven't had any issues. I've both used professional key formats (purchased) as well as free forum downloads, and all work great."
"It does everything they say here. I connected easily to my iMac. Now I can make my own controls for my GarageBand, iMovie, Photoshop."
"Simply great. This app challenges the imagination. It has countless possibilities not discussed such as game boards etc…"
"Very powerful app with endless possibilities."

The ultimate wireless remote for the iPad. Use control panels with buttons, sliders, dials, panners, and circular menus that control any application on your Mac or Windows. Work like a pro in Photoshop, Illustrator, SketchUp, Aperture, Final Cut Pro, and other applications on your Mac or Windows using your iPad as a control panel. Swipe to rotate a 3D model, or dial to adjust brush size, or pan with your fingers to navigate a canvas, and access any tool with simple taps without moving your mouse and drilling down menus.

Controls are colored and tagged with icons for easy access. They can have different sizes and shapes, and even be transparent and overlaid over any image: think of an image of an airplane dashboard to control a flight simulator, or a picture of a Klingon vessel's control panel to control Microsoft Word!

You can purchase, from within the app, already made KeyPad layouts with a professional touch. Layouts for various productivity apps added regularly to the KeyPad in-app Store. 
Currently, you will find in-app keypads for purchase for Photoshop, Illustrator, SketchUp, Aperture, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Mac OSX, iPhoto, iMovie, Word, Powerpoint, Excel.

Upgrade to KeyPad Pro and import all your in-app purchases from this app into KeyPad Pro. With KeyPad Pro you can in addition create, edit, modify, duplicate, and email control panels! And access the KeyPad Forum where users of KeyPad Pro share their creations for free.
