    I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a way to use your iPad as a bluetooth keyboard for your computer.

    I think it would be awesome to be able to use the onscreen keyboard to type on your PC.

    You can get apps to control pc inc mouse which has onscreen keyboard, or specific mouse apps that inc keyboard.

    But, unless I'm mistaken, those apps run over the wifi network, and not over bluetooth. Wifi uses more power than bluetooth.
