Share Keyboard connects your computer keyboard to Android
In lieu of a Bluetooth keyboard, Share Keyboard has an app to utilize your computer's keyboard to type on your Android device. The great thing is that the app is functional with any stock Android device.

To use Share Keyboard, you launch the app, and then go to the indicated URL from your computer. You then type your text on the Share Keyboard website, and send it back to your device.

The other full-keyboard option is rooting your Android device, and then connecting a Bluetooth keyboard. Share Keyboard fills a valuable niche by providing a full keyboard to those who don't want to take the risk of rooting their device.

Share Keyboard is by no means a perfect solution. In order to use it, you have to have a computer with you anyway. You also aren't typing on the Android in real time, so it's more like a quicker means of emailing text to yourself.

A conspiracy theorist would say that Share Keyboard could be collecting the text you send to yourself, like a keylogger. In that were in any way true, maybe caving in and rooting your Android device is the safer solution.

This is what I wrote on Android Central "Sort of overkill. I've used "wifi keyboard" before. Its simpler instead of using a website you just use it over wifi and connect directly to the device thru a port. I'm more confident in that ones security than the web based one. But I still am reluctant to do anything confidential using wifi keyboard or any 3rd party keyboard actually like Touchpal or Smart Keyboard Pro. I'll always go back to the Android keyboard for anything confidential."

I'm having problem with opening it up with ip address.
It's a hassle, and I always get connection time out.

I've paid for it and I can't find their site to complain.

hm...
