Hacksugar: Bringing back the on-screen keyboard

You’ve got an iPad. You’ve got a Bluetooth keyboard that you love. Now imagine this: You’re in bed. Your keyboard is somewhere downstairs. And yet, it’s still in range and paired to your device. You can tap, tap, tap in the iPad Spotlight text entry field, but there’s no keyboard for you to use.

The application works by dynamic linking to the Graphics Services function that attaches and detaches hardware keyboards. When run, it basically tells the system: “There’s no hardware keyboard attached.” Fear not. Your Bluetooth keyboard will continue to work and can toggle the onscreen keyboard, but the soft keyboard appears as well whenever you tap a text field. Of course, use this app at your own risk.

Here is the direct application link.
