Typeeto is an app that enables you to use your Mac keyboard as a Bluetooth keyboard for other devices such as iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Android device, etc. Now use a full-scale keyboard to type in a text and it will be displayed real-time on your device screen. You do not need to install any other apps on your device – just connect it to Mac and start typing.
With Typeeto you can:
• Write long messages on Mac and send them from mobile devices
• Copy-paste a text from Mac to connected devices
• Use a full-scale keyboard to manage your Apple TV or game consoles connected to TV (except PS3 & PS4)
• Manage music playback on your devices
• Connect any number of devices to Mac
• Switch between devices in a single click or a hot key press
• Save your time & effort - you do not need to set up an extra keyboard separately
To start working with Typeeto follow this 3 simple steps:
• Turn on Bluetooth on Mac and a device you’d like to connect, make sure that both of them are discoverable
• Go to Bluetooth settings on Mac and pair the device
• Connect your device to Mac. Remember that for iOS and Android devices connection has to be initiated from them first.
That's it! Your device is connected - start typing away.
• Select between Dark & Light themes
• Make use of sound effects
• Designate a hotkey to each device
• The device’s type is detected automatically, but you can always change it in Preferences
• Enjoy our cool animation :)

Handy, But Beware
I realy liked the idea of being able to conjure a bluetooth keyboard out of my laptop to use on my phone or otherwise at a moment's notice, so I was certainly willing to give this app a shot. The app worked exactly as I expected it to, although the modifier keys like "Command" and "Control" don't work. There is one warning I must give you, however: For the last two years (during which I had this app) my AirPods never seemed to connect at all to my Mac. Using resources on the internet, I was able to rule everything out but a software issue on my Mac, which stumped every Apple Genius I talked to. In what I figured would be my last attempt to solve the issue, I systematically uninstalled apps I thought might be problematic, and discovered that Typeeto was indeed responsible. I disabled the app's "start on login" feature, and can still use it if I am not using my AirPods. If I want to use my AirPods, although it's not the most convenient thing, I simply restart my Mac and refrain from using the app. Would give the app 2.5 stars if I could, and some explanation from the developer would be welcome.

not identifying iPhone
i have been using Typeeto for close to 2 years now, pairing 2 iphones & 2 MacBooks so far in my experience. i have however noticed that it has never identified my iPhone as as iPhone but always as "unidentified" & i have never known how to correct it. Pairing was also flaky & i have had to reboot either Mac or iPhone for successful connection. Otherwise, it's working fine although its autocorrect sometimes can be irritating when it corrects the wrong word.

The issue with the iOS device's connection in the Typeeto has been already fixed. Please update the macOS up to the latest version macOS Catalina 10.15.4 (if it is possible) and everything will work as stated.
The app worked well for a while, now I can’t get it to work at all and I have no idea how to fix it.
WHen I run the app I get a bluetooth promt asking me if I want to connect…
Problem is, that window as well as the Typeedo connection window both vanish almost immediately after the bluetooth prompt is displayed.
If I re-select the app in my dock (as it remains running after vanishing) the connection window comes back up, followed by the same bluetooth connection prompt, and again they both vanish.
Moving back into the app a number of times will occasionally cause the bluetooth prompt window to stay open (sans the Typeedo connection window) and I can click connent. Unfortuantly this does nothing, as the prompt stays open with the buttons disabled and a spinning progress indicator. This window will remain open indefinitely (even if I turn bluetooth off all together), unless I try again to go back into the Typedoo dock icon. Of course, re-entering Typedo causes that blootooth window to disappear, it shows the connecting dialog, which is then followed by the same bluetooth prompt, then both windows vanishing once again.
In short it doesn’t work…. I’ve tried rebooting but it was no help…. I don’t really know what else, if anything, I can try...

Thank you for this feedback. We are sorry you have faced this inconvenience while using Typeeto and we’d be happy to help you with the troubleshooting. But, the thing is that, unfortunately, it is not quite clear how this connection interruption actually happens and it would be much appreciated if you send us a video of your step-by-step actions, in what order and what exactly you do and where. Please send the screencast to our official email firstname.lastname@example.org if possible, so that we could reproduce your actions and see where exactly the problem occurs. Thank you in advance.
