    There's an iOS app called "Custom Keypad" (http://keypad.iosproapps.com). Basically, it's a remote control for your mac/pc, which lets you layout any number of buttons, sliders, trackpads, etc. on your iPad/iPhone screen and assign them to send to your computer any keystroke, key combination, mouse clicks and gestures, and even a sequence of commands. The buttons can be sized, shaped, labeled and coloured to your liking and you could even apply a custom image to each one. It's pretty awesome! Gradually moving away from iOS, with the last iPad in the house soon to be replaced, I'm looking for an alternative on Android, but couldn't find anything with a similar functionality. I suppose that with an app like "remote mouse" and a custom keyboard I could achieve a very crude version of this functionality, but I couldn't find a fully customisable one, and it's not quite the same anyways...
    So far I've been able to find an Android solution for anything I've been used to doing with iOS, but not this one.
    Can someone point me at the right direction (not back to iOS please)?
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums. I didn't have much luck either, as I always came up with how to make your own custom keyboard, but it didn't have the other functions that you listed.

    I'm honestly not sure what to suggest. Sorry.

    Thanks Golfdriver! I'll keep on looking and will update if I find anything useful.
    How do you make your own custom keyboard BTW? Does it involve a lot of programming, coding, rooting, etc. or is there a more straight forward way? thanks.

    I saw a website that showed how, but there is a lot of coding involved.

    Basically it's a substitution algorithm. There's a table of all keys, and the output for them. (The default is whatever the key is - 't' outputs a lower case t.) It's no more difficult than writing any other keyboard, simpler than some, but not something a non-programmer can jump in and start doing.

    If you can put up with a standard PC/Mac keyboard, Programmers keyboard in landscape mode is a pretty standard keyboard. (You can even send anything you want by using the Alt key.)
