Is this feasible, for lack of any description, for working while standing? I mean to say the page will turn if, say, the guitarist singing while playing steps back from the mic for an instrumental break; right? And then when he steps back up to the mic to resume the vocal, does he find his music two pages ahead of him?

I do musical theater a lot and this is the system that I use when I'm reading music and need to torn pages.

Thanks for the response.

Would you say, then, Yes, Markk Darkk, feasible it is for standing work.

And you'd say, No, Markk Darkk, when I walk across the stage and come back to my iPad, my page is where I left it and not pages ahead.

:) And I'm really not trying to be a smart ass, believe me. I'm just looking for a plain old yes or no. :)

To be honest with you I'm not sure if the answer is yes or no. The iGigBook Pager has an adjustable sensitivity, which means it is possible to walk gingerly with it and it not trigger a page turn. I will say that it isn't designed to be used in the way that you are describing though it may actually work. When I use it with one of those arm band holders around my ankle I can move my foot around. To trigger the page turn I need to perform an action that generates more force like pulling my heel off the ground and dropping it back down.

Thank you. Your answer is most helpful and informative. I appreciate it.
