Ben,

I have looked at Mrmr and downloaded touchOSC. They are fairly decent and provide built-in templates with buttons and slider controls. I would think however that LC could be done even better. I envision an editable template with a few controls to choose from and then lay out the screen 'live' as it were to send commands via OSC. The OSC will stay the same (no new or downloaded code) but the controls can be stored and or added via the shared folder in itunes and the end user can modify the screen as they see fit. Basically a nice customizable front end to an OSC backend. 

The other added bonus is that the library would be available for use in desktop apps and soon for droid and win mobile devices. I think this would make a great project and of course the code would be available to all of us LC devs.

OSC - http://opensoundcontrol.org/introduction-osc is great for many types of media processing and interactive applications and at present is the best way to control an Arduino board from the iPhone or iPad ( http://www.arduino.cc/ )
