    Hi,

    I have a Mac Mini that is connected to my TV and I have a separate bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

    Does anyone know if here is an app for the iPad that will let me use it as a keyboard for the Mac Mini? My BT keyboard is always running out of batteries, it's only for occasional use so I think I would be OK just using the iPads keyboard.

    Thanks

    If you search 'itap keyboard' in the app store I think it's exactly what you're looking for.

    Thanks a lot for the advice, I've just downloaded it and it's excellent, just what I was after, and it replaces the mouse as well as the keyboard, so really helps to declutter.

    This also works on a PC.
    I was looking for something to control my Media PC under the TV etc.
    My normal RF keyboard was going through batteries, and the scroll ball was tiresome.
    This app works a treat, and the giant finger board is a pleasure to use.

    Would this work on MacBook Pro?
