Do you know of any apps which will let me use my iPhone as an external keyboard for the iPad?

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions on the iOS SDK, there is no app that will let you use your iPhone as a keyboard for your iPad systemwide. However, we think we've found the next best thing. To find out, follow along after the break!

Cut the Rope for iPhone updates with new Toy Box

Cut the Rope, the popular puzzle game by Chillingo, has updated with a new Toy Box, achievements and candy types.

Om Nom is jumping for joy with his new Toy Box! Now you can choose to feed him candy, donuts or cupcakes. And Om Nom has been making a special treat for you, too! He has drawn and colored some cute pictures for you to share with your friends, but he has been so busy catching candy he can't remember where he left them! Will you be the first to find them all and get them back to his gallery?

  • A new Toy Box
  • OmNom drawings feature
  • "Gift this app" button
  • Ability to post drawings to Facebook
  • New achievements
  • New candy types

Cut the Rope is one of my favorite iPhone games! When a new iPhone owner asks for a list of must-have apps, Cut the Rope is always on my list. The gameplay is so fun, yet many times infuriating when trying to get all 3 stars.

Cut the Rope is available for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.
