There are two ways to hook up a Mac’s wireless keyboard to iPhone or iPad. One is the straightforward Bluetooth paring. It works well. The other is with Typeeto, a Mac utility which uses the Mac’s keyboard to work with a nearby iPhone or iPad, Android device, or even an Apple TV.
Instead of resetting the keyboard and pairing it with each device, Typeeto lets you switch effortlessly between devices with a click, or a keyboard shortcut.
Setup is simple enough, too. Turn on the Mac’s Bluetooth connection, and your remote device– make sure both are discoverable. Pair the Mac with the device. That’s it. Type lets you switch from one mobile device to another with a click, so the Mac’s wireless keyboard works with multiple devices.
Type comes with both dark and light themes to match OS X Yosemite. It uses sound effects and a hotkey to switch between devices. On the surface, this seems like a slick solution to doing some heavy duty typing on remote devices which have clunk onscreen keyboards, and is certainly less expensive than buying a Bluetooth keyboard for each device.
