Overview

UxbTransform monitors all configured and connected devices for any input that is received. The input is then checked against a set of configured gestures -- if the input matches any gesture a command will be run. Independent configuration profiles can be applied to each application, additionally there is a default profile that will be applied to all applications. Learn more about the using and extending the application at the documentation page.
