NumPad - Wireless Numeric Keypad
By BitBQ LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Transform your iPhone or iPod touch into a wireless numeric keypad with NumPad.
You sometimes need a numeric keypad but don't want to get an extended keyboard? You have a laptop and a extended keyboard would be handy?
If you use a Mac with OS X 10.4 or later, NumPad does not require any additional software on your computer. It connects through Screen Sharing so setup is super easy. Windows users will need a VNC Server software (like RealVNC).
That USB cable gets in the way? No problem! NumPad can be used upside-down to keep things out of the way.
If you're a Sibelius or Finale user, then NumPad is the ideal tool for you. NumPad now includes all Sibelius layouts and the Finale Simple Entry layout that will make your work more enjoyable.

What's New in Version 3.6.3
Great for iPhone, could be better for iPad
Does exactly what they claim it doesWould be nicer if (1) it worked via USB cable or Bluetooth as well as wi-fi, and (2) if the screen rotated to look as it does on the iPhone, when using the app on an iPad Mini in landscape mode. Those two enhancements would make it perfect. Maybe on the iPad version they could also add arrow keys, 'Home', 'End', 'Page Up', 'Page Down', and a scrolling area to control the mouse... That would make working on complex spreadsheets an absolute joy!
Don't waste your $. Bought this to use as a numeric keypad for my MacBook Pro running 10.9.2. Using an iPhone 5s with 7.0.6. App will not accept your password.
