What's New in Version 3.5.4
I mistakenly thought this would use bluetooth to communicate with a PC rather than needing to download custom server software for windows. The license agreement allows the server to collect whatever technical content it can find on your machine so the company can use or sell it. The only limitation is that they cannot personally identify you. The agreement even enables them to capture everything you type and use that too, but they likely are not going that far. If you don't like their agreement or if you don't want to install another server on your PC, then don't get this app.
It works. But there's some stuff missing. The create your own keyboard option is weird and it feels unfinished. Also multitouch gestures aren't there, only scrolling. It's a good start, but it needs more.
I'll keep on looking...
I really feel as if I paid for nothing. I purchased this app to be used as a keyboard interface for my ott (over the top) device. After numerous attempts to connect it so that it would prove functional, I persistently failed. I guess I have to find what I'm looking for elsewhere!
