KDECONNECT-iOS four Plugins done and more coming!

The app will auto-discover all devices (with kdeconnect) on the same local network, remember devices after pairing successfully.  As long as the pairing is done, communication will be encrypted. Besides, we can configure plugins globally or individually in app.

Here are some screenshots

Using the same protocol we used in the android version,  some “non-platform-dependent” plugins are implemented by now.

1.Ping: send/receive a ping between devices.

2.MPRIS: control your media players with a “remote panel”.Play/Pause , forward, rewind, next, previous. We can get the title of songs, and change the media player that we would like to control.

3.Clipboard sync: Synchronize the clipboard between devices (work in background but can’t last for too long due to the restrictions of iOS). That means, with kdeconnect, we can copy a text from computer and paste it to a sms input immediately, or reverse.

4.Share: share photos to other devices. (we are expecting more than sharing photo . More will come)

That’s all for a brief summary of the project. More coming soon!

    1. As this project has only provided wireless link connection for now, it doesn’t support BT yet. But BT connection is in my plan, for we can only get device push notifications and telephony notifications through BT4.0-LE (restriction of iOS). At the beginning, I’ve just implemented the essential parts and the plugins which existe on the desktop side. I’ve managed to get notifications of iOS via BT, but there is still a lot work to do in order to implement the backend of BT. I chose to delay it, but of cours, a BT connection will be nice .


    1. By now, all features are ported for non-jaibreak iOS7 devices.(only the clipboard synchronize I’m not sure if apple will like it). I’ve read about the new features of iOS 8 , once the beta is a bit more stable, I’m sure that we will profit from it 🙂 .


      1. Wow cool, didn’t thought that would be possible! But you should probably soon try to submit an early version to the App Store to check if they are willing to publish it to avoid mayor complications later… Assuming that you are in the developer program.


      2. Yes, I’m in the developer program. You are right maybe I could have a try with a previous stable build. The procedure is indeed quite complicate XD.


  1. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all
    my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really
