Since the early days of the iPad, we all dreamed to use it has a surface controller for our daily work. The interface being able to morph into anything, it wasn’t so hard to think of shuttle, Steinbeck decks, sliders and shortcuts. It took a while but the apps eventually started to appear… Here’s a short list of the best ones with the addition of a great new addition.

UnknownFirst, there’s of course the famous and free vWave-Lite (free) from Tangent that gives you a virtual set of 3 trackballs on your iPad for Apple’s Color. mzl.kjrrwhlq.480x480-75
