Looked Promising Well this looked promising at first glance. However, despite registering via the website the site still won't let me into the site, might be because I never got a chance to enter the validation code due to waiting for the email, and when it arrived there is no longer a link to input the code, instead it says 'password or email address wrong'. The software might be beta but your website should work properly. Oh well back to HOTAS for Elite Dangerous.

Please improve Lollipop compatibility!!! But best app ever!! Worked flawlessly on KitKat but now that Nexus devices have Lollipop, on my Nexus 5 app is really slow and does not load all buttons. On the Nexus 7 app just doesn't work all together, as soon as I select my computer's IP address to connect the app simply closes but does NOT pop up with the crash error report. Once fixed you will definitely get 5 stars as I love the flexibility of being able to create my own grids. As a perfectionist I have been working on my own grid by creating my own buttons to suit my needs and satisfy my perfectionist needs. My only suggestion is to allow the ability to change grid dimensions so we can tweak the grid to fit perfectly on out phone/ tablet screen. This will also allow tablet users to utilize the entirety of their device's screen.

Wow. I love it. But needs some tweeks. #1 needs to allow user to use phone/tablet as actual keyboard or mouse on the PC. #2 remote transfer between PC and mobile devices.#3 add on for over/under clocking CPU or GPU.
