Editors' Review

For average Mac users, the trackpad's default functioning can sometimes be frustrating. BetterTouchTool for Mac allows users to customize the trackpad operation for their whole system or individual applications.

Available as freeware, the program downloaded and installed quickly. After initial startup, BetterTouchTool for Mac attempted to access all of the computers on the test network, which is a strange function for the type of features offered. Lacking instructions, the program was difficult to interpret outside of the main menus, which were featured at the top of the window. The overall appearance of the program is very good, albeit a little confusing. Users can add functions for the Magic Mouse, keyboard, trackpad, Apple remote, and BTT remote. These functions can be specifically applied to individual apps or the system as a whole if desired. A large arrow indicates where to press to begin assigning functions to the selected device. Additional options include allowing window snapping just as in the Microsoft operating system. Once we were acquainted with the interface, assigning functions proved relatively easy, although some required changes to the system preferences. There did appear to be technical support available in the form of feedback and error reporting.

BetterTouchTool for Mac functions well and gives users control of device gestures, although advanced users may not need the assistance.
