    Use an iPad as a button box?

    Currently using PCars dash but really confused as to why there is no app that uses the iPad as an actual button box?

    Is // has anyone created one? Would any of the Devs consider adding a button box feature to their existing apps as an extension for those who don't want the Rev counter but would like to buy the app to use as a button box?

    Have I missed it, does it exist?

    I used Actions for iPad until I got my real button box. The cool thing is you could even use flows with the app (in-app purchase though), so that you could assign "Thank you!" or "Sorry!" for the Multiplayer chat into one action button.

    Actions for iPad... Is that what that app above is called? I'll try it if it's any good as I might do until we see this added to PCars Dash app

    The app above is called PowerGrid. It's by a company called Roccat. It's actually quite good, I have used it in the past for other apps.

    The app I was using is indeed called "Actions for iPad". https://itunes.apple.com/at/app/acti...564645608?mt=8

    And this is the template I made for Project CARS.
