Yes, you read that right. Not only is good old TouchOSC getting a much needed update, but for the first time there's also a fully-featured Android version available today.

TouchOSC for Android

It's been a long time coming, and here it is. Today we're releasing the first fully-featured port of TouchOSC for the Android platform.

After much testing, hacking and cursing we're rather confident this version will play nicely with most devices and existing layouts out there, and fully support the feature set offered by its iOS brother and the TouchOSC Editor/Bridge applications (minus some Apple specific features like CoreMIDI, that sadly have no Android equivalent). The definitive plan is to keep both versions as close to identical as possible from this point on.

As the attempt to fund the development (and the metric ton of testing devices) using a donation model was plainly unsuccessful, and the common response seemed to be 'I'll donate when it's finished', the app is being released as a new, paid application on the Google Play store and we'll try to keep pricing (just as much as the feature set) identical across platforms. That being said, both versions will be reduced in price for a couple of days to celebrate, to say thank you for the continued support over the years and to apologize for the long wait!

Please bear with us while we update the documentation to reflect the slight differences between platforms.

TouchOSC 1.9.0 update

Please make sure that you also download the updated Editor and Bridge applications to get access to the new features. Here's an excerpt of the changes that went into this update:

+ Support for iPhone5
+ Support for custom layout sizes
+ Support for more MIDI message types 
  (All controls now support Control Change, Note, Program Change, 
  Poly Pressure, Channel Pressure and Pitch Bend messages)
+ Added XY control MIDI mapping mode 
  (Placing 2 or 3 fingers on the control will send only x or y messages)
+ New iPhone5 layout: “Automat5”
+ Fixed handling of UTF-8 encoded strings in both application and editor
+ Fixed naming issues with virtual CoreMIDI connections (iOS)
- Removed support for MIDIMobilizer Mk I 
  (Please use a CoreMIDI compatible accessory, i.e. MIDIMobilizer Mk II, instead)
