    Very nice.

    Would be even better if the IPAD/iphone client would allow scrolling inside Windows applications through a simple gesture (two fingers scrolling, for example):

    – scrolling long texts
    – scrolling long web pages
    – scrolling large Excel files
    – scrolling Windows Explorer

    is not confortable when you have to use the mouse pointer.

    2x client would be smart offering scrolling with fingers.
