So youâ€™ve got your iPad nicely propped up in your iPad Keyboard Dock, and youâ€™re typing away, and then it occurs to you that youâ€™d really like to be using some sort of mouse, only the iPad doesnâ€™t come with one of course. Well check out this video and step-by-step walkthrough from Redmond Pie that shows you how to use Cydiaâ€™s BTstack Mouse app on a jailbroken iPad to operate a Bluetooth-enable mouse. Redmond Pie use it to operate Apple Magic Mouse, although they say that the app, which is a free utility for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches, works just as well with almost all of the Bluetooth-enabled mice that they tried. The feature and video provide extensive instructions, so if youâ€™ve jailbroken your iPad and feel like you want to use a mouse with it, be sure and check it out. Theyâ€™ve got all the links right there for you if youâ€™re not sure about any part of the process.
