    I am not sure why I decided to try to configure my ipad and EP5 but last night I tried to do just that and - no luck. I followed the directions but I can't get the ipad to read the EP5 no matter how long I hold the bar code up to the ipad. What am I missing here?

    Same happened here. Delete the app and start over from zero. Also, readers are finicky sometimes... try downloading a different free QR code reader.

    your iPad has to be connected to the WiFi net, which is created by the E-P5. Most probably you are connected to another available net.

    Just scan the available WiFi nets with your iPad. There should be one with a cryptic name, which contains the letters EP5 after your activated WiFi on your E-P5.

    When connected to the correct network the pairing via QR code should be possible.

    Hold your ipad really close to the QR code when it is scanning. I couldn't get it to work too until I figured out how close the QR code really has to be...
