Type2Phone

Luxembourg – Type2Phone turns your Mac into a Bluetooth keyboard for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Type2Phone running on the Mac will emulate a Bluetooth keyboard. Pair your iOS device with the Mac while Type2Phone is running. Now every character you type is funneled through to the iOS device.  Type2Phone also allows for pasting text from the Mac to the iOS device. Every character that could be typed can also be pasted. Just hit cmd-shift-V. It also supports text selection and copy-paste operations on the iOS device. Navigate text using the arrow key. Hold the shift key while navigating to select text. Use the cmd-C, cmd-V shortcuts to trigger copy-paste operations.

Now is the time to step up security:

  • Set up non-obvious recovery email address
  • Set up strong passwords: easy to remember, hard to guess

Now use Type2Phone to key in those new passwords. Type2Phone has a “stealth mode” where characters you send to your iOS device are not displayed on your Mac. No one can look over your shoulders to see the your new passwords.

Other uses for Type2Phone include:

  • Quickly type SMS text messages, notes, etc.
  • Reply to emails on accounts configured only on your iPhone
  • Communicate with friends over your iPhone: Facebook, Twitter, chat
  • Paste addresses, passwords, … from your Mac to your iPhone

Type2Phone supports the following 1.5 iOS keyboard layouts: U.S American, Arabic, Belgian, British, Canadian, Danish, Dutch, Dvorak, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Swiss-French, Swiss-German.
