If your wireless Bluetooth keyboard is connected to a desktop iMac, Mac mini, or Mac Pro, then you’re stuck without a keyboard while using it on the mobile device. That’s not good, but Typeeto takes care of the problem by letting you use the keyboard on your Mac to type on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Android device.
In other words, you don’t need an extra wireless Bluetooth keyboard for your mobile device. Just use the keyboard on your Mac, whether it’s Apple’s wireless keyboard, or the Mac notebook keyboard. There isn’t much to setting up Typeeto to make it work, either. Make sure Bluetooth on your Mac is on. Install Typeeto. Pair your Mac and mobile device as per normal, and confirm the pairing on the device.
From then on, when you’re ready to type something directly into your iPhone, iPad or whatever, just click the Menubar icon, select the device, and bingo! The Mac’s keyboard works on the mobile device.
Forget about using the onscreen Apple TV keyboard. That’s so 1999. Switch your Mac notebook and use that keyboard instead. You can even cut and paste or copy and paste between devices using the Mac as the wireless keyboard.
Typeeto comes with sound effects and keyboard shortcuts. During setup it auto detects the device, but that can be changed with ease.
How many devices can you connect to your Mac and use Typeeto to type? The developer says there are no restrictions on the number of devices, but I connected two iPhones, two iPads, and an Apple TV with ease.
In the end what you get is an instant keyboard for any mobile device you’re carrying around. It’s much easier, faster, and more accurate to use the Mac’s built-in keyboard on iPad, iPhone, or whatever than it is to use the onscreen keyboard.
Even better, Typeeto is cheap and you no longer have to tote around an extra keyboard just for iOS devices.
