Type2Phone 3.0

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Houdah Software has updated Type2Phone [1] to version 3.0 with a new user interface inspired by iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. The Type2Phone utility enables you to type on your iOS devices from your Mac via Bluetooth (see “Type2Phone: Use Your Mac as a Keyboard for iOS Devices [2],” 10 April 2013), and the update adds support for using Return to send texts in iOS 9’s Messages app (use Option-Return to add a new line), adds Special menu items for iOS 9 keyboard shortcuts, improves overall support for keyboard shortcuts, and makes improvements to international keyboard layouts. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, 0.6 MB, 10.6.6+)
