You probably want to use the UHK with a desktop computer or laptop in which case you should be covered because Windows, Macintosh, and Linux are all supported.

The UHK also works with phones and tablets that support USB OTG and USB HID devices which is the vast majority of recent Android devices. The tables below feature the devices which we tested. If your device is not featured in these tables then connect a USB keyboard and USB mouse to it and if it works then it will almost certainly work with the UHK.

Windows phones are not supported because the Windows Phone operating system doesn't support USB OTG.

iOS devices are not supported either, because they don't have an USB port. (A lightning to USB adapter is somewhat useful as it allows you to use the keyboard functionality of the UHK, but not the mouse navigation functionality. It also pops up an error message upon plugging in the UHK.)

Please note that even though you can use the UHK with the above devices, the configuration software only runs on desktop operating systems. But once you configured the UHK it remembers its configuration so this shouldn't be a problem in most cases.
