    Just wondering if I bought a wireless keyboard for my iPad 2 if I played a game, could I use the keyboard for the controls? For example would it work for dead space? Also are there any bluetooth Mouse's? If so could I also use them for gaming?

    Whether there is Bluetooth keyboard support by an app is determined on an app-by-app basis - there's no general rule. If an app decides to support a Bluetooth keyboard then that support has to be explicitly coded into the app. So you'll need to determine for specific games whether there's keyboard support.

    In terms of apps - for sure a Bluetooth keyboard is supported by

    Safari
    Apple's 'Pages', 'Keynote', 'Numbers'
    'Notes Plus'

    These are the apps that I use the most. I don't play any games on the iPad so I've no idea of which games might support a Bluetooth keyboard. I'm sure other Members will be along soon with their contributions.
