    I’m Going to Try this with my phone cuz the keyboard that pops up on mine
    is got tiny keys

    This is what writers at bubblews need because they are often telling me
    they can’t write without misspelling using a touch screen on a cell phone
    so why not let everyone know the benefits of using the bluetooth keyboard
    so that way even texting can be more like typing on a tablet, notebook or
    desktop pc. Especially when writing articles on Bubblews.com It’s
    funtastic.

    You don’t need root for it, right?

    @Chris8c8 I don’t think with the method I’m showing. I have done it before,
    but it did not work so well.

    @AntiPrep789 I know there are, I just can’t think of them off the top of my
    head. I can’t guarantee they work though either.

    Nice demo, though watching it made my head hurt. Not the tech specs or
    detail, the narrator. I felt like I was listening to someone with the
    education of a sloth. No offense, just made my head hurt.

    I cant type anything in the text box. It wont read anything from the
    keyboard.

    Thanks, this video was very useful! I bought the keyboard after watching
    this video, downloaded the app and it works perfectly. I have one question
    though, do you by any chance now how to go “back” using the keyboard? I
    know you can go home using the function key and the left directional key
    but i am trying to find a way to simply go “back” one action. If you could
    help with that would be great.

    the same to AboutABC. Have you repair it? Thanks.

    connected… any thoughts?

  15. Mark "The Hammer" Arata says:

    (type 0000 on the keyboard and press enter)

  16. TheTimurbest says:

    NOT. In my SGS2 IT DOESN”T WORK. THERE IS NO “CONNECTED” WORD AFTER TRYING
    CONNCETION. ONLY PAIRED.

    Hi! Thanks for the video. Have you tried this keyboard with some remote
    admin applications (to control your PC from your device)? If you did, would
    it recognize special buttons like Alt, Ctrl/CMD, etc?

  18. mechrocktech says:

    @Drcorywilson23 I think I used 0000, but a lot of the time it doesn’t want
    to stay paired. Try restarting your phone.

  19. mechrocktech says:

    @RobertTFrederick I’ve read and saw some other things about other keyboards
    working, but I can’t be for sure what ones. The only problems I’ve been
    having is that sometimes I need to restart my phone to connect, but
    otherwise it should work well. This is only a temporary thing until I can
    get a small laptop.

  20. Chris8c8 says:

    dose the keyboard only work when typing like the i pad or dose it let you
    navigate the internet browser and homescreen too ?

  21. Danielle McGaw says:

    Thanks so much. It didn’t work quite like yours but the app helps and I can
    finally connect!!!

    @timtampa Yeah, sorry about that. I’m trying to speak up more. I have
    always have a tentative voice.
