Description
Type2Phone turns your Mac into a Bluetooth keyboard for your Apple mobile device. Type text on your keyboard and it will appear on the mobile device. Or type text in a Mac text editor, edit it and then paste it to your mobile device.

  • Use your Mac as a keyboard to quickly type SMS text messages, notes, ...
  • 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.

    Every character you type into Type2Phone will appear on the mobile device it is paired with. Of course, you may also paste text from your Mac to the device.

  • Mac with Bluetooth enabled

    Initial pairing instructions:

  • Enable Bluetooth on your Mac
  • Set Bluetooth on your Mac to be discoverable
  • On your iPhone / iPad, go to Settings > General > Bluetooth
  • Enable Bluetooth on your iPhone
  • Tap the name of the Mac to start the pairing procedure

    For future uses you may initiate the connection from the "Click here to connect" button in Type2Phone.

    Troubleshooting:

    When attempting to pair, your iOS device may not list your Mac or indicate that it is incompatible. The workaround is as follows:

  • If the Mac is listed with a blue arrow, tap that arrow and select "Forget this device".
  • Disable Bluetooth on the Mac
  • Reenable Bluetooth on the Mac
  • Set Bluetooth on the Mac to be discoverable
  • Launch Type2Phone
  • Now restart your iPhone / iPad
  • On your iPhone / iPad, go to Settings > General > Bluetooth
  • Enable Bluetooth on your iPhone
  • Tap the name of the Mac to start the pairing procedure

    If this convoluted procedure is needed, it is needed only once during initial pairing. Future connections are initiated from the Type2Phone software.
