Total life saver!
1keyboard is a total life saver! I lost my apple TV remote and couldn’t set it up after I moved. I didn’t want to buy another remove that I would lose again (they’re wayyyy to small lol) so I google searched for a solution and found this product after about an hour. Bought it, downloaded it, and connected my apple TV within 15 minutes!! It works perfectly! It even helps when I’m studying and can’t text my friends from iMessage on my computer; I now type-text them with my iPhone connected to 1keyboard. This product has given me a way to control my TV and phone, from my computer. I can’t think of a more useful product! :D
Better control of my AppleTV
I use this to control my AppleTV, having long ago lost the original AppleTV remote. My iPhone can’t always wake the AppleTV up, which then in the past I’d have to go unplug/plug it back in it to make it wake up again. With 1Keyboard, I have an alternate source to wake it up from my lap and generally 1Keyboard is better at this than the iPhone has been.
Also handy for when I’m half browsing/half watching TV and I can just pause whatever I’m watching straight from the computer in case I get engrossed in the computer.
Finally, f I’m going to search for a title (in Netflix/Hulu, etc), I instinctively reach for the 1Keyboard/Mac combo to control the TV so I can just type naturally.
Oh, one more tiny thing- I find it a bit easier to rewind from 1Keyboard using the left arrow key than on my iPhone swipe gestures.
One note- for a week or so I couldn’t make it connect to the AppleTV at all and I just eventually re-established the Bluetooth link between them and it fixed it.
Can only type, but no volume, playback control
Developer has stopped updating 1Keyboard for years now, so I think the app can’t cope with the new changes in both OS X and iOS. In my case, I can’t control the media (volume, playback) on my target device. You could only do the typing. Considering that the app is quite pricey but can support only remote typing. I wouldn’t recommend the app for those who haven’t decided yet. Don’t bother with it, you got many othe decent choices available in the market.
By the way, don’t be fooled by the support email that being given. They won’t answer once they got your money anyway.
updated: I would give negative star if I could. really frustrating that you cannot control the media player. Lots of 5-star reviews are from years ago, when it still functions, I guess.
