App Store Description

Transform your iPhone or iPad into a fully featured Mac trackpad with gestures support.

This app was written by a single person and was featured by 9to5Mac, Redmond Pie, AppAdvice, MacMagazine and more.

“I’ve tried many similar apps before, but none of them worked as well as El Trackpad. Besides not having any notable lag, the app lets the user perform the same gestures as you can do on Apple’s Magic Trackpad.”
— 9to5Mac

“What makes El Trackpad so impressive here is the fact that it appears to be lag-free and works identically to an actual Apple Magic Trackpad, which is super awesome.”
— Redmond Pie

“If you’ve ever used a Magic Trackpad or the built-in version on any MacBook model, you’ll be right at home with the app.”
— AppAdvice
