Typeeto is an app that enables you to use your Mac keyboard as a Bluetooth keyboard for other devices such as iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Android device, etc. Now use a full-scale keyboard to type in a text and it will be displayed real-time on your device screen. You do not need to install any other apps on your device – just connect it to Mac and start typing.

With Typeeto you can:

• Write long messages on Mac and send them from mobile devices
• Copy-paste a text from Mac to connected devices
• Use a full-scale keyboard to manage your Apple TV or game consoles connected to TV (except PS3 & PS4)
• Manage music playback on your devices

Why Typeeto?

• Connect any number of devices to Mac
• Switch between devices in a single click or a hot key press
• Save your time & effort - you do not need to set up an extra keyboard separately

To start working with Typeeto follow this 3 simple steps:

• Turn on Bluetooth on Mac and a device you’d like to connect, make sure that both of them are discoverable
• Go to Bluetooth settings on Mac and pair the device
• Connect your device to Mac. Remember that for iOS and Android devices connection has to be initiated from them first.

That's it! Your device is connected - start typing away.

Additional features:

• Select between Dark & Light themes
• Make use of sound effects
• Designate a hotkey to each device
• The device’s type is detected automatically, but you can always change it in Preferences
• Enjoy our cool animation :)

Release Notes:

Greatly Improved My Efficiency - I create Invoices and other types of typing intenssive documents on my iPad but, not enough to warrant purchasing a specific bluetooth keyboard for any of my iDevices. Since I usually have my MacBook Pro running at the same time, Typeeto is freakin’ perfect for selecting my iPad from the pull down menu and start typing into Notability, Notes or whatever app I’d like to not flatten my fingers on. You can pull down and select any device you have paired with your system and start typing almost immediately (after a very brief finding and binding of the selected device). A little icon of your device will be onscreen indicating you can type to the device and to go back to typing on the Mac by just clicking on anything outside of the little icon. I just tested the Paste feature, copy text from your Mac and paste it to your iDevice by COMMAND+ALT+V (or it looks like you can set your own shortcuts). I also just tried the SPECIAL (ALT) characters and they typed correctly. Yeah, nothing I can see to complain about. Any modifications the programmers miught add would be a surprise to me since it does everything I expected. Obviously, you need to have Bluetooth enabled, you need to be running your input computer, those are a given otherwise, it wouldn’t be called Mac Keyboard as a Bluetooth Keyboard!? If you do your computing surrounded by multiple devices, this app is all aces. Thanks!

Not useable with an iPod Touch - I just bought this App to use my MacBook’s keyboard with an iPod Touch. It does not work! Typeeto does not see the iPod. The MacBook Pro is a late 2014 model running 10.10.3. The iPod Touch is the latest version running IOS 8.3. The MacBook’s Bluetooth sees the iPod and the iPod also sees the MacBook as described in picture 4 above. Is it possible that the iPod is not supported? I hope that this can be fixed in a later release. Peter

Replaced Multiple Keyboard - It works! - My setup has an 2011 iMac, (el Capitan) an iPad and iPhone. I’ve been struggling with keyboard combinations for years trying to have the iPad with email, iPhone for scheduling while I work on the iMac. All had problems, even Typeeto has issues; however, Typeeto works quickly, does not take desk space and stays connected in my radio-active desk environment. Pro: -Takes no space -Types on the iOS devices with (almost) no latiency -Easy to envoke -Focus automatically returns to the Mac when I focus on the Mac -Almost no resources used -Works with my Bluetooth 2 iMac Con: -Typeeto does not have a “home button” function; however, command “h” works in many cases -The cursor move/selection key combos do not work reliably -Takes a few tries to connect if another BT keyboard has been used

Doesn’t work for me - I simply can’t get this to work with anything, and the help docs aren’t helpful at all.

Version 1.4.1
Review by PeeCeeJunior

Great idea, spotty instructions and compatibility - I purchased this to see if I could control a Raspberry Pi via my 2011 Mac Mini keyboard, eliminating the need for a second keyboard. I noticed someone else had issues using a 2011 iMac, so I wasn’t that disappointed when it didn’t work. It did work using a 2013 MBP. And it works great, just not in the way I wanted it. The developer needs to beta test their software using a variety of hardware. I wasn’t able to sync an iPhone 6 on my Mac Mini either. It’s apparent they did not QA this with anything older than 2012. Now if we were running Windows computers, maybe I could understand this. But the developer knows what model bluetooth chip works with their software and they know when Apple started using that chip. They need to make that clear in their production description, because right now the compatibility variables listed (OS X 10.9, 64 bit processors) are incorrect. But it does work pretty well with later models and I will still find an use for it.

Review by Tried a dozen names

Saved a lot of time. - The contacts on my ancient cell phone would not transfer to my newer IPhone. Using a full size keyboard made typing in all the information an easy task. I’ll be using it for texting also. Thanks.
