Keyboard doesn't appear when bluetooth is enabled

Post by Scot Larsen » Mon Mar 26, 2018 2:34 am

I have an AirTurn Duo device for page turning. When bluetooth is enabled and my device is connected I cannot get the keyboard to appear when I want to search for a song or composer (or any function where you need a keyboard to type stuff). Super annoying. I have to disable bluetooth to get the keyboard to appear so I can use the search functions but that really stinks on a gig where I need to use my AirTurn Duo. It used to work great and then this problem appeared immediately after an Apple IOS update a year or so ago. I think I posted about this then. The problem is still there, even after several IOS and igigbook updates. Is this an Airturn bug, an Apple bug or an igigbook bug? I'm surprised this hasn't been worked out yet. Anyone else experiencing this?

The problem is that these devices emulate a keyboard but aren't keyboards. I believe AirTurn had some type of "switch" or combination that would allow the keyboard to function normally.

Press the power button once on the Airturn (ie NOT pressing and holding to turn it off) and the keyboard should appear.
