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
are building

5/ look at droid party for a project that provides another GUI method, using
libpd internally, for making interfaces on Android (and iOS) devices.

http://droidparty.net/

All these have advantages, but of course they all involve more work than just
using the GUI elements built into the language.
