Troubleshooting:

When attempting to pair, your iOS device may not list your Mac or indicate that it is incompatible.
The workaround is as follows:

- On iOS: Go to Settings > Bluetooth. Select your Mac. Select "Forget this Device"
- Restart your iPhone / iPad
- In Mac OS X System Preferences: Disable Bluetooth on the Mac. Reenable Bluetooth on the Mac
- Reenable Bluetooth on the Mac. Set Bluetooth to be discoverable
- Launch Type2Phone
- On iOS: Go to Settings > Bluetooth. Enable Bluetooth
- Tap the name of the Mac to start the pairing procedure

At worst, this convoluted procedure is needed only for initial pairing.
Future connections are initiated (automatically) from the Type2Phone application.
