Customer Reviews

Worth the price

If you own a Mac and an iOS device, this is a must buy.
Check your Bluetooth before purchasing.

The APP turns your laptop or any usb connected keyboard into a bluetooth keyboard for your iOS or other mobile device.

I love the ability to switch between multiple device, you can even set key commands to switch to different device or specific devices.

The APP also supports split view, so you can type things on your iPhone while looking at other things on the Mac.

I love the APP
