Ckeyin ® BT Bluetooth Wireless Media Music Remote

Ckeyin ® BT Bluetooth Wireless Media Music Remote
We have a new digital friend in our midst, in the presence of a keyfob. Since the release of BlindSquare version 2.0, we have had the ability to control BlindSquare from the wired Apple Earbud controls (or the like) or, to more limited extent, the AfterShokz headset. We now have a wonderful solution using the Ckeyin ® BT Bluetooth Wireless Media Music Remote that I’m about to describe. You may purchase it from Amazon for example. The keyfob is

  • Small
  • Light
  • Low cost
  • Rechargeable via usb
  • Has a nylon tether with a keyring (so you can easily run a finger through it while using to prevent accidental dropping)
  • Allows use of Audio Menu in conjunction with any headset or no headset at all
  • Easily fits in your hand or pocket, to allow use with BlindSquare while your iPhone is nestled in a shirt or pants pocket.
  • The Ckeyin has the following controls:
    1. On/off slider
    2. Play/Pause
    3. Forward/back
    4. Volume up/down
    5. Large round button, currently not used, acts as a shutter release for the camera.

    Although I haven’t yet tested it with Blind Square, @atguys also offers a multimedia remote which has the same buttons and I would guess the same functionality here http://bit.ly/1Rb4Gx7

    I would like to update my previous post; having ordered, received and tested the remote, I can confirm that it performs all of the audio menu functions.

    Yes and this remote if you get it from A T Guys it will be supporting a person from the blind community and a local business and small business! Here again see link to it below.

    I got the ckeyin remote about a month ago and indeed, it is a handy device for several music related applications as well as BlindSquare. I cary my IPhone in such a way as to make it possible for me to take still pictures or videos. I use the ottervox case with the belt clip swivelled to hold the phone upright. This then clips to a lanyard with each end drawn through a bar which itself is horizontal. The camera thus looks directly out from about my chest level.
