Great stuff !

I’m using the Air Turn TAP on my drum set, and I must say it works almost perfectly. Still some issue with the pad sensitivity. Sometimes you have to hit very hard to make it work, but it’s a great solution to page turning problems !

The tap is great. The mounting hardware needs work.

We've been using this onstage in a house of worship setting. The bluetooth pairs up with 1st gen iPads and we use planning center's "music stand" app (a legacy version). It works great, and I highly recommend it. However, the mounting hardware needs some improvement. The stand bracket is solid, but all of the connecting hardware between the stand bracket and the itap is pretty flimsy plastic. Go easy on it and you should be okay. The pivoting ball on the hardware is a nice idea for flexibility in position, but you can't really tighten it down hard enough to keep the itap from moving around a bit. Not a deal breaker, but I was disappointed in the construction of the mounting hardware. Also, the spring-loaded contraption really holds the unit in. It seems to be well-made, but Because of the stiffness of that piece, I just charge the unit on stage because I'm afraid of damaging either the prongs that hold the tap in or the tap itself over time.

So far so great

It works just as advertised. I paired this to a Viewsonic VSD220 22" tablet and use it as a multi-page digital music stand. I can see two and a half pages at a time and the Airturn easily scrolls pages. I am currently using EbookDroid as my PDF viewer.

tap is great, the mount doesn't work very well

i love the tap. However, the holder and mount do not hold the air tap in place very well. The parts of the mount that can rotate (elbow joint from the metal arm and the ball joint) will not get tight enough to keep the air tap in place (i have to adjust every few songs.
