MagicPrefs Brings Magic to the Otherwise Dull Apple Magic Mouse

Posted on February 12, 2010 by

MagicPrefs is the perfect solution to your Magic Mouse headaches.  I love the Magic Mouse, but I hate how Apple hasn’t enabled more gestures.  I’m not asking for much, I really just want to be able to use Expose.  And a gesture for Dashboard and one to show the desktop would be nice too.  Well, MagicPrefs gives you that and much more.


Check out this MagicPrefs and download it for free from their site.

MagicPrefs is a free menubar and preference pane application for OSX which aims to improve the functionality and configuration options of the Apple Magic Mouse.

It features the ability to bind a variable number of finger clicks, taps, swipes, pinch and other gestures to functions like Middle Click , Hold Down Both Mouse Buttons , Spaces , Expose, Dashboard etc.

Touch Sensitivity implements a single point control for a number of factors impacting the algorithms of the taps, swipes, pinch and other gestures.

Tracking Speed adds the ability to increase the maximum mouse speed by an extra 200%.

Also featured is a real-time display of the fingers touching the surface of the mouse that you can enable to test and monitor the way the mouse sees your input.
