This is definitely one of the most useful apps I have. For someone who types a lot, both on my pc and phone, having this really saves me a lot of time. It's pretty much lag free, other than occasional connection issues from unstable (not sure if it's me or the app tbh). You can copy and paste things from your pc to phone. Very useful app, and it's free as well. Definitely worth getting. I typed this review with this app.

I forgot about this app, and tried a different one called Wireboard instead. I found the problem with that one is that it doesn't "immediately" send your input to the Android; instead it has a local version of the text that you can edit and then send--the problem with this is that you can't tap on the Android screen to move the cursor around. Wireboard has no way of knowing you've moved the cursor. I guess Wireboard is more suited to text messaging, perhaps. But WiFi Keyboard is better for editing long passages of text directly on the Android screen and using the strengths of said Android screen (the touchscreen). Also, despite the warnings that this app is for an older version of Android, it works fine on my phone as long as I leave the recommended permissions in place (didn't try it without the permissions).

Works fine so far, gonna try it with an offline game to see if it can work to that degree. For now, it's working great, and I don't see any reason not to give this app a 5 star rating. Update: Works perfectly when it works. There are occasional disconnections but fortunately they aren't super frequent. Great app.

What's new

2.3.5:
- Enter should work fine again. If it still broken, I'll disable submit on enter for single-line inputs.

2.3.4:
- Disable full screen mode in landscape
- New key combinations supported: Ctrl-Del, Ctrl-Backspace.
- No need to press "submit" button anymore. Enter will submit single-line messages, Ctrl-Enter will submit multiline messages.
(Thanks Daniel Sim for the patch)

Check out "AOSP WiFi Keyboard" if you want this keyboard combined with the standard one (thanks to Marcos Diez).
