On the applevis sight it says that this app is free. Howeber on the appstore it says that it is $10. Is there a free version?
I am thinking of buying one of the apps, but can't decide the best regarding the areas mentioned above, so any thoughts are apriciated.

both 1Keyboard and Type2Phone cost 9.99 USD or EUR and both support connecting to multiple devices between which you can switch using customizable keyboard shortcuts.
However, Type2Phone has more features, supports more iOS keyboard shortcuts, and is fully accessible. It allows you to define many keyboard shortcuts to perform various actions in iOS, imcluding almost all VoiceOver commands, missing only some extraordinary ones, such as tap and hold used for dragging items or showing some pop-up menus, although, what I am missing here is a shortcut for VoiceOver item search normally available using VO + F.
It supports a lot of keyboard layouts for different languages, and has an optional abbility to automatically disconnect when idle and reconnect, in case you want to safe battery while not using the Mac keyboard to typpe to your device.
What I find quite handy about Type2Phone is you can optionally configure that it switches between using the keyboard for your device or your Mac just by switching to or out of the Tyúe2Phone application using the familiar Command + Tab.
