I was wondering which simulator people like to use for testing iPhone games? Are there any that support multi-finger swipes and such, even tho I have just a new iMac and magic mouse? =D

Unless I'm really out of the loop, there is only the one that Apple distributes with the iPhone SDK.

There's only one simulator - the one that comes with the dev tools - and although it's a handy tool it alone isn't sufficient for testing. You need a real device, or (increasingly) a bunch of real devices to properly test your apps.

There are some web-services that let you test on real-devices via the internet. If you google it you can probably find them.

Also, if you want to test multi-touch on the simulator, you can use the iSimulate app. You'll need an actually device to run it though.

Or you can simulate two touches with Apple's simulator by holding down the option key (and hold shift+option while you move the mouse to translate the center of the touches).
