USB Remote for iOS v1.30

What's new in USB Remote v1.30 (iOS): 

Remote tab:

Remote tab was completely redesigned:
  • keyboard and mouse can be controlled from a single screen
  • user interface can be quickly adjusted using toggle switches (top row)
  • you can use your system soft keyboard (virtual keyboard)
  • or in-app keys when requested key is not available on soft keyboard or when you need more customization options (more info below)

Modifier keys (Shift, Ctrl, Alt, GUI keys) are now easier to use (behave like Shift keys on soft keyboard):
  • 1x click: press modifier key, it will be auto-released when any non-modifier key is pressed
  • 2x click: press & lock modifier key, it will remain pressed until manually released

New customization options (applies to in-app keys only):
  • mode: keys can behave like soft keyboard keys (always results in pressing & immediately releasing a key) or like physical buttons (allows for press & hold)
  • dynamic labels: when enabled, key labels are adjusted depending on currently pressed modifier keys
  • physical layout: you can force using ANSI (104 keys) or ISO (105 keys) physical layout
  • feedback: key click sound and vibrations can be enabled

Fullscreen mode:

It is now possible to run Remote tab in fullscreen mode:

  • allows to display more keys simultaneously
  • always displayed in landscape screen orientation
  • can be launched from Remote tab (Fullscreen button in top left screen corner)
