    Received used magic mouse. Starting testing. Will report if any problems. So far works great.

    After about 20 minutes the Bluetooth mouse (aka Apple Magic Mouse) disconnected. The Bluetooth symbol on the iPad went dark. Had to go back into the mouse app and reconnect. Maybe the battery in the mouse is weak. Will check later.

    Apple Magic Mouse - working great. Very bullet proof. No problems after a week.

    Next step adding an apple Bluetooth keyboard - simultaneous.

    Can you use a touch pad? I have my iPad 1 set up c/ a ZAGG Bluetooth keyboard, and in that laptop type configuration, it is awkward touching the screen to move around.

    I use a Magic Mouse and a Wireless Keyboard at the same time on my iPad3 (Wifi+Cellular). The mouse has replaced my finger for navigating the iPad home screen, and do actions within applications, like scrolling, opening and closing documents, even playing certain games, like Angry Birds, Plants vs Zombies, Bejeweled, etc. I can even swipe left or right on the status bar with the Magic Mouse!

    There are short cuts within Activator, where one can assign certain keyboard commands to perform a number of tasks, like close applications, minimise to app switcher, show app switcher, kill background, invoke Backgrounder, etc.

    With the Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard, the iPad becomes a better productivity tool (with the help of BTstack Keyboard - latest paid version - and BTstack Mouse). The only time I touch my iPad screen is before I pair the Magic Mouse + Wireless Keyboard to the iPad.

    I am glad I found this thread as I am considering the magic mouse for some occasions.

    Do gestures work with the ipad?

    Also, what is the battery life like?
    Thanks,
    G

    Single finger gestures work with Magic Mouse. I used my iPad3 for more than
    8 hours, with both mouse and keyboard connected via Bluetooth. I still had 30% battery left.

    Nope. At this moment, cursor devices like mice and trackpads don't work on the iPad. Only the keyboard works with it.

    The only gesture I was able to do was the scroll up or down. Were you able to get others working??
