    I'd like an app that allows you to use your mac keyboard to type on your phone. I've found a couple in the store but they are old. Anyone using something kept up to date?

    I've seen

    type2phone March 2016
    1Keyboard Feb 2015

    Any recommendations? :)

    Maybe something like this: https://www.mochasoft.dk/mochakeyboard.htm
    Has a free demo (no backspace) and works on iOS and Android. Supposedly can paste Mac to device, which seems useful.

    You can also use SMS Relay if you have newer devices with at least Bluetooth 4.0.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. I'd ideally like something from the App Store. I didn't see any Mocha history to see if it's an old product.

    You can use your Apple bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone or iPad without any need for a special app. Just make sure your Mac is turned off or the keyboard won't connect with your iPhone.

    Right, sorry, didn't get that from your first post.
