:idea: Ease Finger Pain Keyboard :idea: in Full.
Essentially a touch keyboard you could ZX with lesser pain but for the iOS.

Intro
Basically this is an application which did the same thing as Remote osu! Keyboard(https://osu.ppy.sh/forum/t/391981).
But I don’t have an android phone, so I give it a try to make an iOS version of the touch keyboard so I don’t have to suffer more pain.:cry:
Hope u guys enjoy! :)~

Requirement
iOS 9.0 and later
Windows XP/MacOS 10.9 and later

1.Install iTunes
This application needs iTunes to communicate with the iPhone/iPad/iPod, if you are using MacOS then you already have it.

8.Open EFP Keyboard on your Home Screen.
9.On your PC/Mac, open "EFP Keyboard.exe"/"EFP Keyboard.app".
10.It will create a tray icon in your taskbar, Right-Click/Left-Click on it, it will popup a menu.
11.It will show "Trying To Connect iPhone/iPad/iPod or your device name (some udid) Via Usb...".
12.After successfully connected, it will show "Connected To iPhone/iPad/iPod or your device name (some udid) Via Usb!".
13.You could now ZX with your iPhone/iPad/iPod! ;)~

There is some trade-off certainly
bouncing (tap faster) vs ease finger pain :roll:

There's always room for improvement, playing a lot of osu! with EFP Keyboard should give me some clues ;)

The hardest thing to adjust is where to click because the lack of feedback,
im not blaming the app, its just a limitation for the touchscreen i guess :d
however, can you make it so that we can adjust the location of the buttons?

Yes, I ran into the same issue, I might add some settings to change the button's position or enlarge it.
It might take a while to add this function, anyway thx for your feedback :D

Woah! I am gonna try this out real soon, gonna be back with results.

EDIT: Doesn't work on iPhone 7 on the latest 11.2.
I guess I should be on a lower version for it to work.
Also, thank you for the hard work on the app. It surely must have taken some time.

Thank you so much! this works perfectly! (iphone8)
Delay feels somewhat close to a 125hz keyboard which isn't bad at all, I love it!

is it possible to make the Z & X buttons bigger? xD
i miss them often

Can is use it on ios 7.1.2?
posted
Can you add two more keys?
posted
i play with my index and ring finger and on an iphone 5 so my fingers are very close to the edge of the buttons when im playing, therefore i miss a lot, it would be great if you could make the buttons larger or maybe just take up the whole screen ^-^. btw excellent work on this!

I see people want to add their suggestion to this project. Just as the creator says, "This project is dead". Hope you guys understand. But, I hope it comes back alive.

Hi, I am back~
Recently, I start playing osu occasionally, I figure out there are some features I need :o
So I update it, along side with some suggested features in comments above :D
However, I currently only play standard mode and I use some api that only available in iOS 9 or later, no key added and iOS prior to 9.0 are not supported :( :
