2 ipads and gigbook "master" and "slave"

i would like to see the following feature: "dual ipad master and slave device" through bluetooth (exactly as igigbook pager app).
The behaviour should be easy. igigbook opened on two ipads : ipadA and ipadB . ipadA behaves as "master", ipadB as "slave" . I assume i have igigbook on both ipads with the same files inside and igigbook opened in both ipads. ipadA (master) "copies" the same page in the same book into ipadB (slave)+1. In this way i may have the same score automatically on both ipads with +1 page on the slave and without clicking on both ipadA and ipadB , but only on ipadA.
It could be an easy way to have a 2-page score in 2 ipads.

2 or more iPAD devices connected "master" and "slave" devices

it would be nice if clicking on "NEXT" "PREV" on igigbook pager app, the second (third, etc) ipad connected puts the same page of the same book in "slave" devices(for example #2,#3 etc) , exactly as "master" device(for example #1). I assume the 2 or more ipads will have the same pdf files inside or, at least, they have the same file of the "master" device.

+1 for this feature.

Image this scenario ... Band leader has the master, all the band members each are "slaved" to this master tablet. A tune is picked on the master and it comes up on all the band member's tablets simultaneously.

That would (IMHO) be a killer feature.

If we did do it, it would be a separate app.

Recently in a private email, I had asked:

Do you know of anyone that uses iGigBook on 2 iPads, so that each of 2 screens provide a bigger view to share, e.g. like when in a symphony and 2 pages per stand are available? It'd only make sense if the page turner could work simultaneously for both of them. I suspect now this isn't possible b/c there's no way to sync them to the same blue tooth device ... but somewhere online I'd heard something about this.

And the help desk reply was:

You can easily do this with iGigBook Pager.

In the context of this forum thread, the above doesn't seem possible b/c "If we did do it, it would be a separate app."

Please explain.
