    Hi, I was wondering if there are any applications out there that let you use the trackpad as if it were more screen mapped.i.e if you press the top left of the trackpad, you will clicking on the Apple logo at the to left of the screen or if you clicking the top right, you will press spotlight?

    Thanks in advance,

    No. It's already mapped to the whole screen, you'll notice, in that if you move your finger the cursor goes there (the dimensions are a bit off). But once you're there you can't click unless you use the bottom of the pad, where the switch is. The Apple Trackpad isn't pressure sensitive; it just has a switch it levers on.

    You could set it up to use a double finger tap to open Spotlight, say. Or even a single tap in the upper right corner.
