i I have an android tablet running android 4.1.1. I could not get an external keyboard to input after pairing and successfully connecting. I tried all suggestions from forums and each app in the play store. I then tried this app and it worked straight away
Work with a mouse? I bought full version of this for my GT-P1010 to use keyboard and mouse. Keyboard worked, mouse didn't. They told me on 21st September that they would release new version "within a few days" that had mouse installed. It took them two months to update. The mouse still didn't work with the GT-P1010. Anyway, I've upgraded tablet to a GT-P5110. The tablet has HID, so connects to a bluetooth keyboard (without the need for BlueInput) but the mouse won't work. So, I download BlueInput. Keyboard worked and cursor appeared and moved. YAY! So I buy a license. The cursor appears and the mouse moves; however I cannot select/ click on anything!! I go into BlueInput; and I notice that I can click on things WITHIN BlueInput, but not outside of it (any other apps). Then I notice a note in the settings that mouse will not select/ click outside of the BlueInput app. WTF? Why the hell not mention that in your release notes, not just your settings? More importantly, what the hell is the point of having a mouse cursor, but then not be able to click anything with it?? This is madness. I have wasted £18.00 on two licenses. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
Corrupts input The demo will paste in the demo text periodically, corrupting files that are being edited unless you are paying attention. It can play havoc in an app like vi/vim, where each key is a command. There was considerable lag too, which made it hard to evaluate (is it the keyboard or Blueinput?). The app is expensive; you're better off putting the money toward a better device that has a BT HID profile.
Really Buggy, Overpriced I was happy to find a way to connect a keyboard to my Nook HD. I was less happy that I have to go through the 'one time only' connect screen every time with it only working on the first try about half the time. Still, I thought I could work around the glitches and decided to buy the full version. I was initially confused why it wasn't showing up in the Play Store. I finally found out you have to buy a key from the developer through their website. I didn't like the sound of that, but I really didn't like the price. Almost $19 American?! That's crazy money for a driver with issues. At half that I'd consider it. At $5 I'd buy without hesitation. $19? Pass!
Works. Unfortunately, if you decide to buy this (which you will have to because it is crippled and inserts demo text randomly),[blueinput demo] you are at the mercy of the developer who does not use Google Play to sell you the app. You have to buy it directly. Worse, it is tied to DEVICE ID. What this means of c[blueinput demo]ourse, is that if you want EVER change devices (warranty/upgrade/etc) you are forced to buy it a second time. Also, very expensive. 8,49 Euros "on sale"!
Crappy, Corrupt Company - avoid them I downloaded this app and paid for it - rather a lot, but I had an apple bluetooth keyboard and preferred to keep it. As the comment below states, you are issued with a device ID and that device ID is specific to the serial number that you pay for, so ignore their comments about it being transferrable it's not, and they are liars. Also, 6 months after buying this software - which is pretty clunky, to be honest. It decided it didn't recognise my account any more and when I retry the code - which worked in the past - it wouldn't accept it. Avoid this software, it's fishy that they don't accept Google Play payment (after all, you can send it back on Google Play) and once you've been using it for a while, you lose the use of the software that you paid for. They're clearly either incompetent and should not be accepted by Google, or they are deliberately trying to force people to keep paying for some rather poor software. I'm reporting them to Google.
* Improved Bluetooth connectivity with SPP Support! Connect your keyboard using HID or SPP, or use the automated connection manager.
* All Bluetooth enabled Android devices support SPP (serial port profile)
* Mouse Cursor implemented
* Improved user interface, to provide the same power and configurability but easier to use!
* More settings options and all in one a great user experience
* Bug fixes, including saving the custom layouts, the virtual keyboard settings, and others
