KeyWi Keyboard - App Review



Do you sometimes wish that you could use a 'proper' keyboard on your iOS device?

This App allows you to use your PC keyboard instead of the touch screen.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Before using KeyWi, you will need to go through the set-up process.

This is fairly straightforward and involves going to Settings/Keyboards/Add New Keyboard, select KeyWi as a new keyboard and then allow full access.

Now go to whatever App you want to enter text into and select the KeyWi Keyboard and then, on your PC go to http://connect.keywiapp.com

The PC and iOS device connect, with the PC redirecting to 10.219.181.134

Cost
The App Costs $3.

Indispensability
This is really for when you have a lot of text to enter and would rather use a physical keyboard.

Dependability
You may need to scroll through various options if you already have a number of keyboards set-up.

There are two settings, Write as I type and Write and send; the latter is far more reliable.

Security
The data transferred is over the wi-fi network you are using and is not stored by the App. The potential issue is therefore the wi-fi network you are employing, and you will have to acknowledge, and especially Allow access, having read the government (not really, it's Apple's) health warning.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Use the physical keyboard that you already own on your iOS device.
