    I am just gonna use the Apple Magic Mouse that laid around my drawer for over two years. Glad it finds its purpose in life now. Pop two AA batteries and it might work again.

    Could I use the same mouse I use with my Mac?

    I have a microsoft bluetooth one that I tried out. Not sure I'm in love with the bullseye marker as opposed to an arrow, but what are you going to do. Still trying to figure out how to program the different buttons for the gestures I use most. Though it's fun to play with, I still prefer to use my MacBook with my mouse.

    Same here mine has been setting without batteries in it for over 3yrs but now I’m using it again every now and then. I think I will more when I start the movie editing on here.

    I will probably use something from logitech. BT based. At home I could use my MX Master 2S, but it is too big for mobile.

    I have a Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse that I hadn't been using. It will complement iPP mobility perfectly. I also have a spare Apple Magic Mouse 2 in the drawer but it's not very practical

    Been using the Logitech M570 Trackball for years (with occasional replacement due to wear) so I'll probably get this to replace it. That way, I can switch between desktop and iPad:

    Don't really need a portable mouse since I only need it when I'm on a desk. When I'm away from the desk, OSK and normal touchscreen input works just fine for me.

    None. For the same reason I don’t use a keyboard either. I use my iPad as a tablet.

    I don’t really use the iPad in a way that would require a mouse but I might just try it out with the Magic Mouse.

    Does this mean that any mouse that works with the iPad will now also work with Jump Desktop and such? No more need for the special Citrix X1 mouse?

    I love it. I been using them for a few years and find the shape about perfect. Unfortunately it is big so not in keeping with travel light package based on an iPad 11".

    None. Because I'm not handicapped and can use a touchscreen. But everyone with a handicap, which makes it hard for them to use a touchscreen, this should be a nice and welcomed feature.

    Well Good luck using a external monitor without a mouse.

    I think it would be to much a hassle, to carry around my iPad AND an external monitor. Besides, I would always need extra space to put the monitor on.

    It is not for handicap people. If that is what it took to get this mouse support in motion then that is fine. We do not always need a mouse with us, so I get not wanting to be carrying extra things with you.

    Although, with a mouse and a monitor and a iPad and a desk. We may as well have a small computer.

    Some people like to sit at a desk and look at a screen and click through YouTube videos while never even lifting a finger off of the desk. Something so simple that we could never do before.

    It is much more precise to edit videos with a mouse. I bought a 1TB iPad for editing 4K video, and using your finger to be precise is tough sometimes.

    The iPad is really versatile with touch only input. But sometimes you get frustrated with touch only input at the same time. When there are 10 small switches on your screen and you cannot zoom in and you can never touch the correct one if your life depended on it. A mouse makes this that much easier.
