It works!

This keyboard replacement works surprisingly well. The issue I have, is that it fills my iPad display with a gray box that takes up as much screen as the regular iPad keyboard. Also things aren’t quite one to one. So instead of just sending pc keyboard output to the iPad, it presents a text box on my pc and then sends that text to the ipad. It has it’s limits, it’s only worth it if I really don’t want to carry a bluetooth keyboard.

Fantastic app with a minor bug.

This is a great app! It allows me to use my nice mechanical keyboard from my computer through a web browser. All you have to do is type the iPad (in my case) or iPhone's IP address (it gives this to you) into the browser's address bar on your computer. I only have two complaints; the first is that I wish it sent the keystrokes through live. The next is likely a bug; sometimes it takes multiple refreshes on the browser side to get it to connect, it's a little annoying but, it is a much better solution than having to reach acrost my desk to use the touch keyboard so I will deal with a bug or two. It is also super simple to setup it walks you through the process.

Also a tip add the airtype interface as a pinned tab in your browser. All you have to do is right click the tab and then click pin tab. And it will always be there when you open your browser.

Also because it is browser based it works with any computer that has an internet connection whether that be a MacBook, Windows computer, chromebook, or a Linux computer!

Great app

This app works great! It does what it says it’s supposed to do which I highly appreciate. My one complaint would be the whole sending option instead of instant type to text from computer to phone/ tablet instead of sending but other than that this works great! The instructional video given also was helpful.
Side to to everyone else: You only type in the number next to the green. Don’t add the http:// or any slashes for that matter. Just the numbers and the periods.
