You have some choices:
1/ use whatever toolkit you prefer to build your GUI app, and send messages to
PD over a socket. Pd is a language, you don't need to use the GUI parts of it at
all ... it has very mature ways of listening to input of all sorts.
2/ ditto, but send osc or midi instead of native pd messages
3/ ditto, but use real hardware interfaces rather than the somewhat limited
ascii - mouse - screen interface of most toolkits.
4/ use libpd to give access to lots of PD from within the GUI application you
5/ look at droid party for a project that provides another GUI method, using
libpd internally, for making interfaces on Android (and iOS) devices.
All these have advantages, but of course they all involve more work than just
using the GUI elements built into the language.
