    Default An App which can Remap Keyboard to Touchsceen Entries ?

    Hi There.

    I would like to play games using my physical keyboard to simulate various screen touches. I was wondering if there was any app which could help me in this ... I found various apps which do it for a Gamepad but bit really for a physical keyboard.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated

    Hello. I don't think this is possible without remapping the entire system. Even then it might still be dependent on a modification of the actual game App to feature this mod.

    I actually have a wireless game pad ( has a USB dongle). When I connect it to my android the key presses are being recognized as number inputs rather than the a b x y buttons ... Thus I cannot use the normal programs available to map gamepad to touch screen

    What you want is a "Z-Board app" for your Android. I don['t think anyone has written one yet.

    Hi - Two yearss down the track - I would be interested to know if such an app has been written yet. it would be very useful to remap touch locations in for example game emulators, to be controlled from external gamepad controllers, or even just the volume buttons etc. I've been googling z-board app without success.

    Thanks in advance
