Very Useful Great keyboard application for the nexus 4. I use it to type out quick texts when at my computer and it works very well. Only complaint is that my screen still dims (not turn off completely) while typing with the app. As you can only see the text on the phone this is an issue and I constantly have to keep moving the phone to see what I am typing. If this could be fixed or let me see what Im typing in the browser then it would be 5 stars easy.
Good in theory This is a very good app in theory, but in practice not so much. Would be useful in sending long emails, but if I am at my desktop ill send the email from there anyway. When using Whatsapp / SMS I have to return to the phone to select emotions, and to send the message. So in practice I am going from desktop to phone, back & forth. Makes the whole process longer. Uninstalled.
Great and easy but can improve I'll keep everything concise: the application is great and does everything it adverties that it does. Pros: you can use your PC's keyboard to send keystrokes and even submit messages in text apps like Whatsapp (via the CTRL-ENTER shortcut). This is something that most other applications lack. One problem that I did encounter was the fact that, while typing, the device is not aware that you are using it and the screen dimms after a while and even turns off. After improving this, I'll give it 5 stars.
The app works pretty well when it connects. However, on both my desktop and laptop, it no longer worked after around 20 minutes. Unfortunately, there are no settings in the app to change the ip address or ports to try debugging it. I've tried uninstalling, erasing the data, deleting the cache, but it keeps choosing the same IP Address and Port which doesn't work.
Very useful & handy I've been using this app for quite a while now. I'd sure recommend this to anyone who'd like the ease of using full PC keyboard to type on phone and having basic control featureless with extra bells & whistles. Missing star: why's the widget changed to 2x2. It was good the way it was.
Just what I was looking for Really simple to set up and use! This app works wonderfully! Thanks for making it free! Can I say I love you? LOL! Suggestion: A Paid version includes a mouse pointer on the android device that can be controlled by either the keyboard arrow keys (hold CTRL+Arrow keys) or PC mouse. Not sure if its possible. :)
- Enter should work fine again. If it still broken, I'll disable submit on enter for single-line inputs.
- 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)
