    After discovering the Display Out app, I wondered if there are any apps that would allow usage of a Magic Trackpad/mouse or equivalent, as a means to control the device while hooked up to display on a TV?

    I can image the possibilities when it comes to gaming or many other apps. I've hooked up a wireless keyboard and it works great, but would love the ability to switch & control apps as well.

    If you install Veency from Cydia and use a VNC client (Chicken of the VNC) you can control your iPhone and/or iPad on your computer.

    So if the room with the television is near enough for the magic trackpad to stay synced to your computer, you could in tern use the trackpad to control the iPhone and/or iPad on the TV screen.

    Anyway, thats the only way I could find to use the magic trackpad as an iPhone control. I wish it were a less messy process though.... If anyone knows how to directly link the two feel free to share :D
