I am still trying to wrap my head around this one but Daniel Bigham’s latest app has a different take on keyboards for the PlayBook. What it does is allow you to type up text using your PC’s keyboard which is automatically transferred to the PC Keyboard app on your PlayBook when it is running. You can then copy it to your clipboard and paste it into another app.
I am really hoping that some new SDKs allow Daniel to extend this to running even outside the app but it does work for now. Check out PC Keyboard for $0.99 in App World.
