All issues having to do with Bluetooth Foot Pedals

I'd like to see iGigbook implementing a force virtual keyboard feature when a blue tooth foot pedal is connected. I own Forescore and it has that feature which is very handy. Also, while at, it would be great to be able to turn pages back.
The page turner devices that emulate a keyboard to me have this problem as a design flaw but the brilliance on the part of the makers of these devices is that they get the developers of apps to create a workaround for that design flaw. I think the makers of these devices should get together with Apple so that a global switch can be implemented to display the virtual keyboard at all times because when you have one of these devices connected, it affects all apps that need keyboard input. I don't view what Forscore does as a feature, it's more of a workaround for a bad design.
The design flaw seems to be rather with the IOS itself: it disables the on screen keyboard when an external blue tooth keyboard(page tuner) is connected. Foresocre has a feature called force virtual keyboard, which, when turned on, will bring up the virtual keyboard. I hope that iGigbook will consider implementing the same feature in the next update.
