The interface provides a number of different touch controls to send and receive messages:

It supports full multi-touch operation, five controls can be used at the same time. Additionally the program can send Accelerometer data. The application comes with five iPhone/iPod Touch layouts and one example iPad layout, each organized in multiple pages. Custom layouts for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad can be constructed using the free TouchOSC Editor application.
