I wonder if a set of screen templates for a range of ui configurations might not be a product folks would be willing to pay for. It sounds like it might save some folks a lot of time.

You need to find the real width and height of the device itself, divide one into the other, and use that as a multiplier against your card size to know how far from the center the controls should be placed. If you’re only doing current iOS devices you could make assumptions about it being 16:9 or 4:3, but that might not always be the case, and it wouldn’t be correct for most Android devices.
