    I did a few searches and didn't come up with anything. I am about to hook up my Mac Mini Server (2009) and Drobo to my home theater. What I am looking for is an iPad app that simply acts as a remote keyboard and a mouse so that I can navigate the server UI from the sofa. I do NOT want a full VNC or remote desktop app, just a simple app for I/O to a Mac computer from the iPad.

    So what apps are you guys and gals using for this? Is TouchPad any good/worth the $5?

    HippoRemote Pro is great for the iPhone and I believe they're working on a native iPad app now. I use it for my Mac Mini HTPC and couldn't be happier.

    TouchPad is the nicest and most native functioning.

    I'm using this also. I like when you install HippoVNC on the desktop, instead of using sharing, it will auto-open apps. Also like the login features.

    I really like RC Trackpad, it supports the native Lion gestures, has a launchpad and a thumbnail window switcher. It also uses SSL so it is secure.
