Blue Board

Blue Board


This is the client app for Blue Board for Ouya. This will allow you to use your tablet or smart phone as a wireless keyboard for your Ouya.

You can also use your phone as an Ouya controller to navigate around. Note that you will not be able to play most games with this. Its designed only to navigate around the console menus. As much as we would like to emulate the touchpad of the controller, it can't be done until the makers of Ouya work with us. At time moment they seam very busy.

Please note this is still a early beta. We hope to get many different kinds of keyboard layouts and to optimize those layouts for different screen sizes. Such as a split keyboard for tablets since your thumbs probably cant reach the middle while holding it with both hands. We welcome any feedback at [email protected]

Thanks for trying and let us know how it works for you.

Known bugs
* Can't connect? Try turning bluetooth off and on again.

Hardware Keyboard support:
The latest version will support physical keyboards. Basic letters should work on all device, but symbols may not. This is because each device setups the physical keyboard differently.

Frustrated! My boyfriend and I have BOTH tried (quite a few different times) connecting Blue Board to our Ouya for keyboarding and it refuses to connect!? We both have Galaxy phones so maybe their not compatible? Too bad because we REALLY wanted to utilize this app. :(

Touch Input Please! Wonderful work so far, but yes touch input on this would be amazing. I was trying out Google Play games on my Ouya that didn't have native controller support so I figured maybe I could play somehow if my controller was my phone.
