This is the client app for Blue Board for Ouya. This will allow you to use your tablet or smart phone as a wireless keyboard for your Ouya.

You can also use your phone as an Ouya controller to navigate around. Note that you will not be able to play most games with this. Its designed only to navigate around the console menus. As much as we would like to emulate the touchpad of the controller, it can't be done until the makers of Ouya work with us. At time moment they seam very busy.

Please note this is still a early beta. We hope to get many different kinds of keyboard layouts and to optimize those layouts for different screen sizes. Such as a split keyboard for tablets since your thumbs probably cant reach the middle while holding it with both hands. We welcome any feedback at

Thanks for trying and let us know how it works for you.

Known bugs
* Can't connect? Try turning bluetooth off and on again.

Hardware Keyboard support:
The latest version will support physical keyboards. Basic letters should work on all device, but symbols may not. This is because each device setups the physical keyboard differently. We are working to get all devices fully supported. If yours is not, you can contact us and we will gladly work with you to get full support on your device.
- Fully supported devices:
Motorola Droid

** We are listening to your feedback. Here is what we are working on now
~ Support for third-party softkeyboards. So you can use fancy keyboards like Swiftkeys
~ An iOS version for you Apple fans out there.

    Just like Julie u's promise. It don't work for at all. No matter how scientifically accurate you follow it.
