Simple and easy
I use this app to input numerical data on my MacBook Air for reports and it is just easier to use this app instead of the keyboard. I purchased the app and was up and running within a few minutes. No issues. Works flawlessly. There is a slight delay from my iPhone’s interface to my laptop, however it’s not that bad and it’s still more efficient than using the keyboard.
Solves a MacBook external keyboard problem
Every version of OS Big Sur or Mojave rendered third-party, simple, external numeric keyboards obsolete. Such keyboards are invaluable for use with MacBook Pro and Air devices. All elaborate reset solutions for SMC and NVRAM offered by Apple were time-consuming and ultimately ineffective/useless. I can only conclude that Apple wants you to buy their accessories, since prioritizing an OS solution to this problem (as reported in multiple blogs) just hasn’t happened.
This Remote KeyPad & NumPad app really works and is a huge timesaver. If you’ve been reluctant to try it and yet are frustrated by not having a usable external numeric, this is the solution. Its setup isn’t necessarily “connect and go”, but once set up, it’s very reliable and portable between laptops. I’d only add emphasis to one point that the app instructions make…make sure both devices are on the same WIFI network…sometimes networks switch from 2.5 to 5 GHz, and it can get the number pad out of sync with the laptop. Thanks for a great app!
Possibly the most useful app I’ve ever downloaded.
No, seriously. I’ve had an iPhone since they first came out and I’ve always wished for features like this. I don’t understand why these aren’t default features in the Apple ecosystem. The fact that a free version of this even exists is crazy, but you’d be crazy not to pay the $4.99 for the premium features.
This developer should be WILDLY proud of what he’s built, and I hope he’s compensated more than fairly for this utility. It’s truly changed my workflow after working from home the past 10 months.
Cheers, Mr. Cherpak! Love the app.
