Linking Multiple Devices to Control Page-Turning from iOS

You can link multiple devices together using Sessions so that when you turn pages on the master device, all connected clients will stay in sync. Sessions uses both WiFi (with internet) as well as Bluetooth. To use sessions between iOS and Android devices, WiFi with internet is required.

You are connected

You have successfully connected. Since you are a client and another device is now in control, your header bar turns red. Any actions made on the master device will be shown on your device. If you are logged in to the same account as the master device, your device will even refresh when new annotations are made on the master.

Allowing another device to control

Allowing another device to control

On the master device, you'll see a list of all connected devices. By enabling "Allow Control" you are handing off control that device. Your header turns red to indicate you are now receiving control instead of sending, and the new device in control will now have a green header.

PDF view doesn't have headers shown, so to know if you are controlling a session or being controlled by another device, there are icons at the top right.

The green device has an arrow going away from it to indicate you are the master device sending control to other devices

The red device has an arrow coming toward it to indicate you are a client device receiving control from another device
