Latest News – unrealBook

11-22-22 – iOS16 doesn’t show the iPad name for the server name. Instead it shows a generic name that will not work! To get around this, you need to use the IP address of the iPad instead. Use this link to find the ip address. Once you have the IP address, use it in this format: http://IP_ADDRESS:8080/

So if the IP address is, then the master IP is:

A version of unrealBook will display the IP string instead of the iPad name until this is resolved.

11-9-22 – There is a problem with iOS16 and Airturn. The onscreen keyboard doesn’t work sometimes. Airturn is addressing this with a modification to their library. I will need to use this new library and issue an update. Working on it. This only affects the BT series pedals. Press the power button to show the onscreen keyboard until then.

9-12-22 – unrealBook runs on iOS16.

Due to changes in Dropbox, you may need to logout and log back in if unrealBook doesn’t see any files. “

Dropbox access tokens are short lived, and will expire after a short
period of time. The exact expiry time of a token is returned by the
token endpoint (or the redirect URI in implicit grant) – but is
generally long enough for a reasonable web session.”

8-7-12 – 4.39 runs on iOS16 beta 4. This could change in the future but it is running on my copy of the beta. This version contains the latest bug fixes, newest Airturn library and a fixed set list search bar among other features.

2-16-22 – 1 finger pan bug. When unrealBook is made active, 2 finger pan is enabled in landscape mode. This is a bug. Will be fixed in the next beta due out shortly. This will be the last iOS 12 version.

1-27-22 FIXEDAirturn does not turn pages after entering and exiting drawing mode. This is as far as I know a new problem with the Airturn library and iOS15. This only happens with the keyboard airturn devices. For this reason, I highly recommend that people purchase the newer Airturn Direct line of pedals – BT-200. They will have less problems moving forward and will be less subject to breaking every time Apple releases a new operating system. WORKAROUND – Go to Songs->All Files and load a song or simply open and close the all files popup.

See the iOS15 page for more information about work-arounds and iOS15 problems.
