    So I use my iPad to display Sheet Music. Works great except for the part where I have to touch the screen to turn pages.

    There is a Bluetooth Pedal that sells for $100 that does work. But that's $80 more than what its worth.

    I was thinking about possibly using a small Bluetooth Keyboard and lay that on the floor to turn pages. Yes, it will look strange.

    The fundamental question is ... does Page Up/Down on BT Keyboards work the same way on an iPad? In other words, do these keys register as next page / prev page within iPad apps.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks !!!

    i imagine it would, you just need to confirm that the pedal sends page up/down to the ipad

    Do you own an iPad + BT Kbd ? If so ... what does a typical app (e.g. Kindle Reader) do when you do send it a Page Down command?
