Bluetooth Keyboard In Cydiastore

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Apps, Jailbreak, News

With this app called BTstack Keyboard from Matthias Ringwald, jailbroken iPhone users can now use a bluetooth keyboard for text entry in your iPhone. Great for college or taking notes in a class or meeting at work! The app should work with most any bluetooth keyboard available.  For more details see Ringwald’s product page.

The keyboard is available for $5 on Cydia Store. Added to reasons to jailbreak!

    Just a case of symantics, but that is the application that is available for $5 on Cydia, the keyboard (i.e., hardware) is NOT INCLUDED! ;-)

    This is stupid…

    It HAS a keyboard and the screen is too tiny to use a full sized keyboard!

    Glad to see the efforts but seriously what a waste of time.

    I used wireless keyboards on smaller WinMo devices. Lack of BT Keyboard support has been my #3 gripe about the iPhone (#1 = I have to jailbreak it in order to get a calender on the lack screen, #2 = no good multi-tasking).

    I’m so happy for this. It seem there is a demo program… I’m going to install that now and go to the store to test with a BT keyboard tomorrow.

    I don’t know why so many people say this is stupid. To me, this is common sense. I don’t want to carry a big laptop around that will get only 2 hours of battery life, just so I can write in my online journal. I don’t want a semi-functional netbook (which will break in 2 years ) either.

    Mathias, Thanks.

    I have a Bluetooth foldable HP iPAQ keyboard similar to what is pictured on one of the insets on their website. It shows up in the keyboard list as “BT-FoldableKB” but when I select it, nothing happens. Anyone able to get this working?

    Fine application which fills a gap in Apple bluetooth software !

    I can’t wait it can drive an I-Tech Virtual Keyboard (VKB). ;-)

    For the moment, when selecting my VKB on my iphone through BTstack application, nothing happens.

    Much needed app, but still needs some work. It does not work in QuickDocuments — which is essential to me. Have not tried it with Documents to Go (as I don’t own that and don’t want to buy a 2d Word editing program). Developer has responded to my inquiry and said they will try to fix, but, until he does, this is not nearly as useful as it could be.

    I’m using the Apple BT Keyboard and the app works fine for me. When responding to SMS Messages, the return key on the keyboard should send the message but it doesn’t so you have to switch to sending it from the iPhone. Hopefully this can be included in a future release.
