    I don't personally trust/like them but there are plenty of examples of them being used, the now discontinued lemur was an example used by many professionals, and they must have enough faith that the ipad and other such devices are competent enough to steal their market to discontinue a product.

    There are lots of great applications out there for touch devices and if you can dismiss the requirement for haptic feedback (at least on most of them) then they do exactly what it says on the trick. You might want to note that the quality of applications and hardware vary significantly with the ipod/ipad generally being at the top where mobile devices are concerned ... at least in my experience.

    A few examples of live control apps

    I use them.

    There's nothing quite like an X/Y pad to control multiple perameters at once.

    TouchOSC was the first one I tried on the iPad.  I was extremely impressed.  I created my own DJ template, for live performances.

    I now use TouchOSC, TouchAble, Griid Pro, and the new Lemur app... but, these I use more in the studio.  I plan, though, to use the Lemur app in Live PA performances.  The 'Mu' template for Lemur is quite powerful.

    I have had no problems with latency, using an AdHoc network connection via WiFi.

    One suggestion... during live performance, angle your touch controller towards the audience, so they can see the neon surface and be wowed.
