Apple trackpad over mouse for designers?

  • # December 22, 2012 at 7:09 am

    Hi guys

    Just wanted your opinions on if you’ve tried the new Apple magic trackpad and if you prefer it over a mouse.

    I have spoken with a lot of Apple users (who are not designers) and they seem to love it. They are not designers, so use their macs for general use, which I can then understand the ease of use, especially browsing and switching screens.

    Apple are clearly moving towards this workflow of gestures with touch devices, but I am not sure about ease of use with programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

    I would love to hear opinions of any designers that have used this. Or coders (although I don’t see it being a problem for coders).

    I’m a big fan of my Magic Mouse; the Magic Trackpad isn’t accurate enough when I’m doing design work.
