USB Remote v1.30

Now it's time for new version of USB Remote app (update will appear on GooglePlay in a few hours). Here is an overview of most important changes:


Keyboard customization. 


It is now possible to enabled additional key sets on keyboard screen: 
Settings -> Choose visible key sets

you can also choose distance between the sets:
Settings -> Distance between key sets


Depending on your device and selected distance, you'll be able to fit different number of key sets:

Example 1:
8" tablet,
Small distance between key sets,
Media buttons + Macro buttons + Lock keys + Navigation keys + Punctuation characters + Number keys
Mousepad enabled







Example 2:
8" tablet,
Very large distance between key sets,
Media buttons + Macro buttons + Lock keys + Navigation keys + Number keys,
Mousepad won't fit.







Example 3:
4.3" phone,
Small distance between key sets,
Lock keys + Navigation keys + Punctuation characters + Number keys,
Mousepad disabled. 


Example 4:
4.3" phone,
Small distance between key sets,
Navigation keys + Switchable row,
Mousepad enabled.




Macro buttons.


You can assign macros to M1-M8 buttons set, which can be enabled for keyboard screen. After recording a macro, rename it to:

  • m1.txt to assign it to M1 button,
  • m2.txt to assign it to M2 button,
  • ...
  • m8.txt to assign it to M8 button.

All macro files must be stores in /USBRemote/Macros/ directory.


Sound & Vibrations.


Sound and vibrations feedback can be enabled for keyboard screen:
Settings -> Play sound when key is pressed,
Settings -> Vibrate when key is pressed.

Note: vibrations will not work with most tablet devices.


Sleep, Power and USB host resume.


These three new buttons are now available on Media screen. Sleep and Power buttons behavior will depend on your OS and settings. Resuming USB host from sleep/suspended state will work only if following conditions are met:

  • InputStick is flashed with firmware 0.97 or later,
  • USB host supplies USB power when in sleep/suspended state,
  • OS allows this device to wake the computer.




Auto-connect bug fixed.


When auto-connect is enabled and user cancels "Select InputStick device" dialog, without selecting any device, USB Remote will no longer make another auto-connect attempt.
