[prMac.com] Topeka, Kansas - Musicians who use an iPad for reading music now have an automated page-turning option using the world's top-selling PDF reader. With its newest version, now available on the App Store, GoodReader enables musicians to turn their music pages with a remote page turning device, such as AirTurn Bluetooth Page Turner, any other compatible foot pedal, or even a standard Bluetooth keyboard.
Flipping music pages on an iPad presents the same problems as with standard sheet music - simply turning pages by hand interrupts the musician's rhythm. Although there are no loose pages with sheet music on an iPad, the user must still tap a key or swipe the screen to turn pages. With GoodReader and any iPad-compatible foot pedal, the musician can simply flip pages in either the forward or reverse directions.
"The ability to flip pages with a Bluetooth page turner is the perfect companion for musicians who perform live with tons of sheet music PDFs on their iPads," said Yuri Selukoff, president of Good.iWare. "Rather than swipe pages on the iPad, the foot pedal flips the pages forward or backward and enables the musician to continue playing uninterrupted."
Using a Bluetooth foot pedal to flip music pages in GoodReader is super simple:
* Open a PDF file and press the Lock Page button
* Press foot pedals on the connected Bluetooth page turner (or arrow keys on a Bluetooth keyboard) to turn pages
* Press the Unlock button on the iPad or a Return key on your Bluetooth keyboard when finished
GoodReader is known throughout the world as the top document reader for viewing, navigating and annotating large PDF documents on an iPhone and iPad. GoodReader aims to deliver the most file viewing and sharing options, while remaining simple to use. With GoodReader, users not only have the ability to do virtually anything they'd like with documents on an iPhone or iPad, they also enjoy unequaled file downloading and sharing with all major networking protocols and cloud services.
Often referred to as "the missing file system for iOS," GoodReader is also able to organize thousands of files into an easily manageable hierarchy of folders and files.
GoodReader has also set the standard for iOS document readers in the enterprise, offering a high level of document security and synchronization with remote servers.
