The connection between devices is quite easy: over WiFi (it doesn't run over 3G). Open the app and you'll get the instructions: you have to go settings, language & input and select WiFi keyboard as input method. Then, open a browser on your computer and type the address to connect your devices. From this moment you will be able to type from your keyboard on your device: it really works.
Beside typing, you can also perform other actions from your computer's keyboard like controlling volume, opening menu, switching between screens, launching app drawer and apps.
This is a great idea with high potential but that has to be enhanced though. By now, we don't really find it really useful. OK it's great whatsapping or sending SMS that fast, but switching between screens, closing conversations and opening new ones isn't as intuituive as it should be. Anyway, worthy to try.
It works as ordinary input method. You can use terminal or type SMS ...
Use WiFi for low latency input. 3G may be blocked by some carriers. USB connection works best, but require some technical knowledge and connected cable.
Internet Explorer is not supported and can be unstable. Recommended browser is Chrome.

Nice app if you type too much and wasn't to use keyboard of your laptop for input.
I use this app daily and it is awesome! As it says in the description IE is a bit buggy. Other than IE it is flawless.
The program is great, but I can't paste text...
This message is typed from ,y laptop :) It would have been nicer if the typed text also showed up on the computer screen as well. Hope it would be available in some update. Anyway thanks a lot.
Works great on my Galaxy Nexus
Work great and support unicode.
