Add more gestures to your Magic Mouse
Apple’s newest mouse seems to be a pretty big hit compared to the design flawed Mighty Mouse. Multitouch is all the rage these days and being able to use it on current Macs seems like a no brainer. As always Apple left out some core features of this mouse, like being able to make custom gestures for example. Luckily there is a third party menu item you can run to restore plenty of custom gestures you’d expect to see out of the box. The list is pretty impressive.
- zoom in and zoom out (pinching)
- tip tap (left / right)
- two finger swipe up/down/left/right
- three finger swipe up/down/left/right
- single finger tap (can be used for tap2click)
- single finger tap left
- single finger tap right
- two finger tap
- two finger click
- three finger tap
- three finger click
You can check out BetterTouchTool and play with the custom gestures. It even works for newer Macbook trackpads.
