- When the target device cannot connect to keyboard/mouse/controller directly (e.g. no OTG, Firmware unsupported, unrooted), you can use another compatible device as a "bridge".

No onscreen access to settings area. No onscreen access to settings area, and lollipop has done away with the dedicated "settings" key on my galaxy S5.... App opens already setup for Bluetooth R-->T however I cannot connect to it from my note 3 set as receiver, the devices are paired and using Bluetooth. Would like to try WiFi but cannot access the settings on my S5...

Keyboard extenstion I can now use my Transformer TF101's full size physical keyboard to type on my phone. This is great! Almost exactly what I was looking for!
