    Default Synergy For iPad: Share your Mouse and Keyboard
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmQp9fGca8g]YouTube - Synergy Beta Working with iPad[/ame]


    I'll start with an introduction to what Synergy is, for those that have never heard of this handy piece of software. Synergy is a program that allows you to share a mouse and keyboard between multiple computers, operating systems and now, with the help of Matthias Ringwald, the iPad, without the need for KVM switches or special hardware. The idea is to use this feature across multiple devices with displays, eliminating the need to connect a bunch of peripherals.

    Matthias is also the developer of BTStack, which brought us the ability to connect our bluetooth keyboards to our iDevices. Earlier today Matthias posted his beta work in progress on synergy-plus - Project Hosting on Google Code for those who are eager to try it out. There are still some issues he is fleshing out, but you can read through the issues posted here: Issue 513 - synergy-plus - Client version for iPhone and iPad - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Matthias says on the project's website:

    it's considered beta quality and not released yet. For those who want to try the beta: please install MouseSupport package using Cydia. Then, download http://ringwald.ch/ch.ringwald.syner...honeos-arm.deb to your device and install using: dpkg -i /ch.ringwald.synergyclient_0.8-9_iphoneos-arm.deb Now, please reboot to get the application on the SpringBoard.
    Tipster leonowski, posted the video above demonstrating how the app works so far.

    On a side note, Matthias has also mentioned "All BTstack apps fixed for iOS 4. BTstack Keyboard, Mouse, and GPS updates are live in Cydia"

    This would make flash doable, because flash requires a hover, and a click gesture. A mouse provides those very well.

    Default Keyboard Support
    I am really looking forward to getting keyboard support working! It's so nice to have my iPhone 4 docked next to my monitors so I can easily respond to SMS's and test things quickly.

    Not to necrobump or anything but is the project officially dead? We still don't have keyboard support and it only supported portrait w/ home button closes to the ground (so no charging iPad while in use, and using smartcover as a stand in portrait!).

    There is a free app called iSynergyClient on Cydia that works fairly well. If you want great keyboard access, just use the free VNC app by saurik (on Cydia). It gives you full keyboard and mouse support! The replicated image on your other screen is laggy, but if you just look at the iPad screen (like you would synergy) it is awesome!!
