How to get the Footime Pedal working with Unrealbook on the iPad

The magic setting is in Network Settings > BT Keyboard Connected > ON.


Make sure the button on the back of the pedal is pushed in.  Ignore the warning that “The connected USB device is not supported”.  It will disable the onscreen keyboard, which is a bit annoying, but it will turn your pages if you have the “BT Keyboard Connected” set to ON. 

Luckily, the iPad works just fine “upside down” once you get used to the home button being on top, since the camera connector sticks out.


  1. If the iPad's home button is on top (so that the cable from the Footime Pedal can plug in from the top), then the iPad is resting on the On/off (Sleep/wake) button. When I do this, it sometimes shuts itself off.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't really use it for any length of time that way to experience that issue, but I think the apple case I have mine in recesses the hold switch enough to prevent that.
