The server side app doesn't display a pin. I cannot get the app to work properly at all. Will have to make my own!

It works Which is a lot more than I can say about the other apps I tried. Would be nice if you could edit the buttons in the app, but editing the xml file is pretty easy.

Works Well, Customation Sucks I have downloaded this app mainly to use with EvE Online. After an hour of fiddling arround trying to find the settings, I located it in the emulated storage, not the SD card! I had to then download another app that allowed me to edit the files on the emulated storage which sucks as its not a PC keyboard. Once I got it configured, it could not do Ctrl or Alt for some reason! I mapped Ctrl+S but it just kept doing only the S. Once this issue is fixed and customisation is easier, this would be an awesome app.
