Device-to-Device Bluetooth Control

Important Note: Occasionally connection between two iOS devices can be unreliable. For the most reliable and versatile method of controlling the Teleprompter, we recommend using a game controller, Bluetooth keyboard, or handheld presentation remote. See compatible controllers → for more information.

To begin using another device as a controller, you will need to have Teleprompter Premium installed on controlling device, and have Teleprompter Lite (FREE) or Teleprompter Premium installed on the device you want to control.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Open Teleprompter Premium on the device you’d like to use as the controller
  2. Tap the Control icon at the top right of the My Scripts screen
  3. Open Teleprompter Premium or Teleprompter Lite on the device you’d like to control
  4. This device should now appear in the list of nearby devices on the controller device
  5. You can now use the control buttons to control the nearby device as long as it has a script open

If both devices are logged in to the same CloudPrompter account, and you have Cloud Sync enabled, you will also be able to use the Live Preview feature to see a live monitor of the device being controlled.

If you’re unable to control a nearby device, or a device does not appear in the list of nearby devices, try the following solutions:

  1. Fully quit the Teleprompter Premium (or lite) apps on both devices and try again
  2. Check that Allow Bluetooth Control is enabled on both devices in the Settings screen in Teleprompter
  3. Check that both devices have Bluetooth enabled.

Connection still unreliable? iOS can occasionally be unreliable connecting to other devices. For the most reliable and versatile method of controlling the Teleprompter, we recommend using a game controller, Bluetooth keyboard, or handheld presentation remote.
