Why WiFi?
Okay setup... Should be Bluetooth. Then I would give it a higher rating.

Used to work great
Now seems to be broken on OS 3.0. Can't maintain connection reliablly and when it stays connected, is not responsive. Please fix... This is an indispensible app!!

Very good
Extremely responsive works great. It would be great to have the option to select which keys you want and get rid of the rest. for instance, I only need "1" "2" "3" and "4" and it would be great to have just those in order to take advantage of all the screen size left by the other keys. thanks

Income Tax Made Easy!
Every year at tax time I search for a numeric keypad for my MacBook to fill in the spreadsheets that I use to calculate expenses, etc. The only usb/bluetooth options are $60+ and have mixed reviews. I have used a full keyboard--bulky; Used the MacBook keyboard--slow. NumPad has solved the problem at a fraction of the cost with hardware I already have--my iPod! It is fast, works great and sure beats using the other options. My only suggestion: add a preference option or (even better) split the ENTER key to allow for TAB (lateral movement on the spreadsheet).

Flawless. Work precisely and support is fast.
An application that does what you want in exactly the way that you want it. Flawlessly. Intuitively. Once set up (taking only a few minutes) all you need do is turn it on and it's active within a second or two. Refreshing in that this application is does one thing, and does it very, very well. It has made my iPod Touch become an indispensable companion to my MacBook. Thumbs up without reservations.

Even works with Windows XP on Mac
NumPad is a fantastic app which not only works with Mac programs on my MacBook Pro but also with Windows XP programs running on my Mac through Parallels Desktop. For the Windows side to work I downloaded RealVNC Free Edition for XP and then used Windows's On Screen Keyboard utility found in Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Accessibity and clicking the virtual "nlk" key (number lock) using the mouse in that utility so that the key has a red line around it and changes to white "nlk" letters on a black background (you only have to do this one time ever, then close the utility). The NumPad author wrote me that a number lock toggle will be added soon in the next update of NumPad -- but you can use this fix until then if you also want to use NumPad on your Mac for such Windows XP programs as Quicken (rather than the less-full-featured Mac version of Quicken). The author has FAQ files on his website for help with such things as how to set your Mac's firewall to work with NumPad. He also was quick to answer my emails and was very helpful to me in setting the program up. I like the different styles of keys on the NumPad virtual keyboard which match different looking computer keyboards. I've been looking for the best way to have a numeric keypad with my laptops, for use with programs like Photoshop and Quicken, ever since switching from a desktop computer many years ago. NumPad fills the bill excellently and it is priced very fairly.
