    I have an iPhone 5, and iPad and a retina MacBook Pro.

    What I would like to do is to display my iPhone/iPad screen and on the Mac and, at the same time, use my Mac keyboard as the keyboard of the iPhone/iPad. Is that possible?

    I know that software like Type2iPhone allows the user to use the Mac keyboard to type on the iPhone. And software like Air Display allows the iPhone/iPad screen to be shown on the screen of the Mac.

    Would it be possible to have these two simultaneously? Is there any app/software that does that? Or, alternatively, is it possible to run two apps simultaneously that do that (does the bluetooth connection allows that)?

    Thanks.

    Wait, wait, isn't Air Display just a second screen and shows what's on the Mac screen instead?

    I would run Type2Phone in the background, and then AirPlay Mirror the iPhone/iPad's display to the Mac. Should work.

    Thanks. But is it possible to run two apps which connect using Bluetooth?

    I wouldn't know to be honest. I would think so?
