Hi!

I've reed the manual so many times how to connect the pager with my iPad. I haven't seen it work once. Is there a video on the www where it is showed how to do it? I use iPhone 4 and iPad with retina screen.

In addition to reviewing the How To here:

Try putting both devices in airplane mode.

I have a probllem: The igigbook pager on the iphone won't connect with the ipad. The pager colour never goes to green

Equipment:
ipad air 2 (new 2014)
iphone 4s (also doesn't work with 5c)

Software:
igigbook software on ipad is 2.53.1
igigbook pager 1.11

Settings:
connectionID pager - igigbook
connection ID ipad - igigbook

I've tried it normally with not settings changed, bluetooth enabled on both devices, phone as client, ipad as server
Also I've put them both into airplane mode and enabled bluetooth on both devices, and not paired them with anything. I've tried it with iphone client mode off and ipad server off and also with iphone client on and ipad server on too.

It just never works. The page will change on the ipad when you touch the screen or swipe but it never seems to sync with the iphone.

I don't know what else to try!! Please help
Thanks, Ian

I've just confirmed that this is consistently working with iOS 7 and iOS 8.1. Are you aware that it only works while viewing a page in the Gig Set Viewer?

Yes I've been using the Gig set viewer and selecting items from the set I made.
It pages when I touch or swipe but the pager never goes green. I try going back and forth but the phone just doesn't sync up

I would try the following:

Enable both bluetooth and wifi on both devices i.e. no airplane mode.

iGigBook Ipad Settings - Server Mode Off
iGigBook Pager iPhone Settings - Client Mode Off

This did work for me, too, to get my iPod Touch and iPad Air 2 to connect and turn pages.

Just holding it in my hand and shaking was a little, I thought, too sensitive so I pushed the slider bar (whatever that thingy is called) righwards.

I don't have the holder yet but think I can find one later today. Then I'll try the pager during soundcheck for tonight's gig.

Evahthang's kewl so fah.

Hi I can't get this to work at all on iOS 9.0.2
Have tried all the suggestions here but nothing. Anyone else got it working on this iOS version?
Ipad 2 and iPhone 5
Thanks

Kevin

This will not work with an iPad 2. You need an iPad 3 or greater.
