Ratings and Reviews
Don’t even want a regular keypad now
I wasn’t about to pay $4 for a wireless keypad app, I’d sooner spend $50 on a real one. But as soon as I saw it’s adaptive for Sibelius I bought it without hesitation. I’m happy to say that it works, although it was a little tricky to hook up to my MacBook.
But the fact that I can look at my phone to see the notes instead of having to look at the computer screen and hit the corresponding key is wonderful. I no longer have to have that ugly keypad on my screen.
I haven’t tested the app without Wi-Fi, and I’m not sure if it’ll work without Wi-Fi. It’d be a shame because Sibelius is an offline app, and this app should be able to work with Bluetooth to give the same result.
Works exactly as promised
Once I figured out how to connect to my computer, the app has worked flawlessly and I will probably buy the Sibelius laout for my music notation program, despite the hefty $20 upgrade price tag (not all that much cheaper than a hardware USB keypad, albeit more portable). I do wish the app offered more proative guidance about connecting, especially in how to configure your computer. The help information about how to connect to your computer or laptop is quite buried, and the app doesn't offer it upfront during setup. That's unfortunate because the guidance is quite thorough and helpful. I fear this will cost the maker some negative reviews.
Works perfectly on both my iPhone and iPad Pro
This app works as advertised and let me input strings of numbers into an Excel spreadsheet from either my iPad Pro or my iPhone. I love it. Although you do have to read the help file in the instructions on how to get it to work with your MacBook. To do so go to Utilities and help and read how to hook it up. You need to turn on screen sharing on your Mac.
Finally if I could get this to work so that the numeric keypad was on my iPhone and I could enter numbers into Excel on my iPad Pro it would be perfect and I pay for a separate app.
