Apple TV Bluetooth Keyboard

KeyPad is a virtual bluetooth keyboard that you can use to connect to any device that can use a keyboard. One of the best examples is the Apple TV.

KeyPad will help greatly for those times that you are trying to use Siri to select some media, and it just doesn’t seem to understand. Just type out what you wanted to say.

Esc works like the Menu Key on the Apple TV Remote.

All arrow keys work. On any screen that takes text input the keyboard works fine.

Media keys (Playback, Volume, Launch keyboard etc) don’t work. Home and Menu do.

Space bar works as play/pause in most apps.
