Ratings and Reviews
iPhone to ipad?
Unfortunately it does not fork from iPhone to ipad, which is really the only reason I could ever see this being super useful. I sort of like it for my Mac, but I’ll take a keyboard any day. If an iPhone keyboard becomes a reality, we wouldn’t have to buy keyboards for our iPads. Apple probably sees it coming from a mile away and doesn’t want that yet.
Excellent App! Does What It Says Very Well
Do not be put off by negative reviewers trying to use the app in ways it could never work. The app requires that you install the free server software on your PC or Mac. It connects using WIFI, not bluetooth.
This app is a million times more powerful than its iPhone version, and is a dream for anyone wanting to build a custom touch screen control schema for a game, or as an ancillary interface to pretty much any piece of software you can think of.
The ability to download pre-developed interfaces from the community within the app, and contribute your own designs to the same community is very nice!
I was worried for a while that this app was not going to be updated to work with IOS 11, but thankfully it now has.
Very easy to use, intuitive, and needs no technical/programming skills. It just works! Download the free PC or MAC server, run it, set up a password, and then connect to the same network with your iPad.... It should find it very quickly. I have used this on my PC and set it up for my father on his MacBook Pro. It is very easy to get working, if you follow the instructions and use it how it was designed to be used.
Awesome job to the developers and the community that supports it so well with their profiles.
Thanks to all of you!
I love this
Two of my laptop keys stopped working, and I accidentally went into the woods to hibernate without my Bluetooth keyboard. This app saved me. It’s very well made and easy to use; if you don’t think so, that’s due to your own lack of understanding of the challenges of making something like this. And he’s still supporting it! So grateful.
