HANDCRAFTED BLUETOOTH PAGE-TURNER PEDAL

Hey guys!  Thanks for purchasing my page-turner pedal.

I'm just a musician who happens to have an engineering degree... so I like making stuff to make life easier for other artists as well. :) 

Cheers!

FAQ

 

Q1: What iPad Apps can I use it with?
A1: Pretty much any app that is an eBook, PDF reader, or slideshow viewer! 

Some commonly used Apps for musicians include:

  • Piascore

  • iReal (Pro)

  • Documents

  • PDF Expert

  • Kindle

  • Books

  • Keynote (Presentation Mode)

  • PPT (Presentation Mode)

  • Google Slides (Presentation Mode)

Q2: How do I order one?
A2: I am currently only building the pedals through personal request

Q3: Can I use the pedal at the same time as an Apple Pencil?
A3: Yup

Q4: How do I switch the pedal to a new device?
A4: It is possible to directly pair with the new device, but like most bluetooth peripherals, it is best practice to pair with one device at a time to prevent interference from multiple signals.

 

The suggested method is to unpair from the old iPad

  • Settings < Bluetooth 

  • Tap the blue (i) next to device name

  • Tap “Forget this Device”

Then pair it with the new device.

Q5: How do I view the virtual / on-screen keyboard?
A5: The method depends on your iOS on your iPad...

  • For iOS ~13 or 14 (sorry, I don't work for Apple, so not completely sure), tap the keyboard icon at the bottom right corner

  • For older iOS, press & hold the arrow that appears at the bottom right corner

Or... you can simply turn off the pedal. :)

MAINTENANCE & SAFETY

 

Apply the same concepts you would to any other electronic device.  

 

Store in a cool, dry place.  Do not get water on or inside it.  Try to keep it dust-free.  

 

If water does accidentally spill on it, turn the pedal OFF, wipe it down, and use a fan to dry it off. Do not turn it back on until it is dry.  

 

If one day there comes a time to dispose of the device (😢), please consider the environment and take it to a battery or electronics recycling bin.

THANKS!
