    This is probably a stupid question.
    People insist on texting me. I hate typing on my iPhone. If my iPhone is within bluetooth range of my computer, is there a way to use my computer to operate as a remote keyboard for the iPHone.

    Why not just use the messaging app on your MacBook?

    That only works if they're all on devices using iMessage.

    People have phones besides iPhones?

    Don't quote me on that, so far it's just a rumor...

    Theres an app on the MAS called Type2Phone, i think its 5 bucks. connects your Mac to iOS device via Bluetooth. Works pretty well, though there are a few wrinkles (can't remember exactly) that make it less than perfect. Navigation is irksome with it, still have to tap the phone
