    Hey everyone
    I am looking to make an iPad/iOS app.
    The idea is simple. I want to be able to use my Blackberry keyboard as a wireless keyboard for the iPad. There used to be an app called BluCTRL that allowed this function, but I can no longer find it.**And I read iBluever will also work, but I haven't had any luck with it. I can't seem to get the dial number right.
    I am using an iPad 3rd generation on 6.0.1 (jailbroken) and a Blackberry 9900 on 7.1.0.746, although that shouldn't matter, but I decided to include it.

    As we all know, you can't pair a Blackberry with an iPad, but I want to figure out a way around it, because like I said, I know other apps have done it.
    I'm trying to figure out the HID profile to use. I am not a bluetooth developer, but I don't mind learning a new skill :). Does Blackberry have a special HID profile? Or can I use the generic HID profile?** Kevin, over at Crackberry had a video where he used his Blackberry as a wireless keyboard for his Xoom using Blackberry Bridge, and he said he got it to work with various tablets.** I would love to use Blackberry Bridge for this, so I am thinking that I won't need to create an app for Blackberry, but just for the iPad.

    So overall, does anyone know how I can get around the Apple lockdown of Bluetooth? And where do I start with this?**Also, if someone knows where I can get BluCTRL or how to get iBluever to do this, that would be fine too.

    I also wanted to note that I am NOT trying to use my phone as a hotspot to tether. I am just looking to use it as a bluetooth keyboard (...and maybe mouse once I get it working).

    I am posting this on Crackberry and ipadforums. And for the Crackberry team, I know the mouse idea seems pointless because BB10 doesn't have a trackpad, but I want to try anyway.

    Thanks for your input.
