Use Your PC as Your Android Keyboard with PCBTKeyboard

Earlier today, we brought you news of SimpleOC—an app developed by XDA Recognized Developer D4rKn3sSyS that allows users to change their clock speed, governor, and I/O scheduler with ease. Not content with simply releasing one app at a time, D4rKn3sSyS shares with us PCBTKeyboard.

Using this app, you can now use your Bluetooth-enabled computer as a keyboard for your rooted Android device. While we may not quite understand the full utility of the added functionality, it is no doubt a cool app to add to your arsenal of Does. In the words of the developer:

So here it Is, a Simple software made for using your pc / laptop with bluetooth, for writing into your android device ( even for playing!  ), there are 2 apps, PC one (you need java installed), and android one, for Froyo or superior. Download is on second post.

NOTE: THIS APP NEEDS ROOT, BECAUSE USES CONSOLE COMMANDS FOR SIMULATE KEYPRESS!

Interested in giving this novelty app a try? If so, you just need to follow a few steps that can be found in the application thread.
