Essential Utility

Excellent for controlling a headless Mac Mini from an iPad. What would make this perfect is trackpad support with the Apple Magic Keyboard on iPad. Is this something that’s in the works?

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review! This is on the roadmap, but I can't offer a timeline for the implementation at this point.
