The PageFlip Cicada is a wireless Bluetooth pedal designed to meet the needs of musicians who struggle with the challenge and inconvenience of page turning. PageFlip Cicada works exclusively with digital documents, web pages, and image collections on iPads and any Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. By simply tapping the dual pedal of the PageFlip Cicada, the digital content can now be flipped or scrolled in either the forward or reverse directions for convenient hands-free reading.
The PageFlip Cicada emulates a standard keyboard and works with any software that uses keyboard strokes to navigate through digital files. For added versatility, the user may select among five modes for the dual pedals: PageUp/PageDown, Left/Right arrow, Up/Down arrow, Left/Right mouse click, and Space/Enter. Changing modes is as simple as pressing a button. No software installation or programming is required.
The PageFlip Cicada works with iPads under select keyboard-compatible apps such as forScore, MusicReader, unrealBook, Deepdish GigBook, and OnSong. The PageFlip Cicada also works with any Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. The pedal, which is powered by two AA batteries, includes a universal AC adapter and a Bluetooth USB micro adapter (dongle) that you can plug into your computer's USB port for instant Bluetooth support! Once you try the Bluetooth pedal you will be amazed by the convenience of hands-free reading.
