Frequently asked questions

My device isn't connecting or I see a black screen

Occasionally Dongled loses control over the iPad’s capture session. The best way to fix this is to quit the App by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, and without letting go, hold your finger at the top of the screen until the task manager opens. Then place your finger on the small image of the Dongled App and swipe it up to quit. Then relaunch the App.

My sound isn't working or audio is out of sync.

The best way to fix sync issues is by making sure your device is on and plugged into your dongle, then unplug and replug your dongle into the iPad. If you still have issues, quit the app from the task manager and reopen it. (See above) Dongled supports Bluetooth output on version 1.3 and above.
