Hi Everyone,

Are there any apps to configure Magic Mouse to act just like the trackpad on my MBA? I tried MagicPrefs but didn't really like it. What I'm concerned about are the native features of my trackpad that I hope can be implemented to the Magic Mouse:

1. Two-finger pinch in/out in Chrome to smoothly zoom in/out. I think Chrome started doing this recently and it's a cool feature!

2. Four-finger swipe down for exposé. (I can change it to three-finger since the Magic Mouse doesn't have much estate for four-finger swipe)

3. Four-finger swipe up for Mission Control.

4. Two-finger swipe left/right to go back/forward in Chrome.

5. Three-finger tap on a word to get its definition.

I think that's it guys :)

Is there some reason that you cannot use a Magic Trackpad (MT)? The MT has more real estate than the MBA trackpad and feature implementation "just works". :apple:

I take my MBA with me when I travel. Isn't ideal to put MT into my laptop case...
