    Hello forum!!

    Well I am now the proud owner of an iPhone! Just got it last week and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to put down.

    I don't for the life of. Me know how I ever survived B.IP. (before iPhone for anyone scratching their head at the screen)

    Everyday I get more and more impressed... Yesterday was the day I discovered shazam.....:eek:

    What I have been looking for today, if there even is an app that exists, is a way to use the iphone keyboard to write messages on the playstion network on the iPhone keyboard via Bluetooth. Is there anything that comes close to providing this functionality?? If not, is there a developer anyone is aware of that would Welcome this suggestion?

    It would be pretty amazing to sit back in my chair and tap out messages the way I am doing this now. If anyone has used the onscreen keyboard within the ps3 system, and labouriously typed out 2 sentences with a dualshock 3, they'll totally feel me on this. Any input at all would much apreciated.

    Regards to all, and nice to join the community!

    well, I have found one app that I THINK could do it ... But probably not: air mouse...... This app works over wifi so i'm not too sure how this would be feasable on the ps3.... I don't know. Looks like no one here has any idea either.

    Anyone got any advice on learning how to use the iPhone sdk, like good place to start?????

    First of all, the "Air Mouse" program won't work with a PS3, only Windows or Mac computers. And I don't think a PS3 controller like you want would be possible with the iPhone. Don't PS3 controllers use bluetooth? I don't think there's a way to use the iPhone's bluetooth in that way with the SDK. Air Mouse and other iPhone apps that interact with computers use wifi and require a program to be installed on the computer.

    Would make an awesome app

    I have no idea how possible it is but it would be a very cool app if you were able to also control the ps3 dashboard and movie controls in addition to the keyboard.

    Well, i have a PS3 and both me and my dad own macs and iphones, so we're going to try and learn the art of app making and try to make this app. I'll let you know if we ever get close ;)

    All tips and help are welcome!!

    That also needs a special format of disc, and a WiFi Blu-Ray player. So it's not exactly bluetooth to bluetooth communication. You also need their application installed on the device.

    Have just seen a new app on Cydia called WeBe++ that would appear to offer this functionality.

    It cost $5, from BigBoss.

    Haven't tried it yet, but it says in the features that it works with PS3.

    It is very best application for keyboard controlling in PS3. It is able to control PS3 dash board and movie controls. From setting option you can get additional features very easily.
