I can't find an auto scroll app for a Microsoft Surface with windows 8.

Thank you Stan. I may be a little dense though, because I spent a good amount of time there and didn't see anything there about auto scrolling. Perhaps you could take a moment to point it out in a more specific manner. Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology. I want an app that does not require that I quit playing my ukulele to use my fingers to scroll down, there by allowing me to play an entire song, top to bottom, without interruption. I don't know what that is called, if not auto scrolling. When I search auto scroll, I see these apps for iPads, but not for a windows os.

Maybe you need one of the Bluetooth wireless page-turner foot pedal thingys, like a PageFlip or an AirTurn.

The basic models have a 2 pedals on them and one pedal is Page-Down, and the other is Page-Up and once connected on Bluetooth to your tablet, should work with almost any app.

If you want more functions, you can check out the iRig Blueboard which has 4 buttons on it that you can configure however you want.

Not sure if all of these work with a Surface tablet as this hardware seems to be pretty orphaned compared to iPad options, and only recently are more peripherals available for Android devices (which is still a paucity compared to iPad peripherals).

I've read that lots of folks are having success using these with the OnSong app.

There is one in the Windows store called GuitarTapp which seems to do the auto scrolling.
