    "Definitely What I Needed."

    November 17, 2012   |   By rfmartinez

    Version: MagicPrefs 2.4.1

    Pros

    This app is really helps with productivity. I do a lot of research and with that, I need to open several articles. I missed not having a middle-click. THIS app saved me from returning my Magic Mouse. Awesome.

    Cons

    None so far. I'll update if I find something.

    "A Must Have!"

    January 24, 2012   |   By tamal25

    Version: MagicPrefs 2.3.2

    Pros

    Enable Tap functions
    Customizable Swipe functions
    1,2, 3 or 4 click/tap/swipe functions to activate Expose/finder/dashboard/hide/etc
    Free to Download
    All-in-One hub for magic mouse/magic trackpad/macbook trackpad
    Increase Speed furthermore if necessary

    Cons

    None. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this program.

    Summary

    This app is a must have! You can do just about anything you want to with this program. Even have a neat Capslock reminder (similar to when you increase/decrease volume and brightness). Overall, this program is amazing! Download it now! You won't be disappointed. For MacOS Lion/Snow Leopard or older. Oh yeah, did I mention it's free?

    ""Free, visual set up features, complements Magic Mouse""

    October 15, 2011   |   By towne.ri

    Version: MagicPrefs 2.3.2

    Pros

    Once you decide which functions you really need, Magic Prefs is smooth, unobtrusive, and adds the functionality that Magic Mouse should have. I have added middle click (Dashboard). That one added function makes downloading this free app worthwhile.
    In addition, the real time view of finger positioning during setup is a wonderful feature as individuals will hold their hands/fingers ergonomically different.

    Cons

    An abundance of possible redundant or overlapping functions that could take away from Magic Mouses' simplicity, and your computing sanity.

    Summary

    I would recommend adding Magic Prefs to your pref panes, even if you require just one added function.

    June 10, 2011   |   By Patrick Boivin

    "Does what I wanted and more"

    May 17, 2011   |   By phm01

    Version: MagicPrefs 2.2.1

    Pros

    Works with iMac and on 30" monitor/MacBook Pro. Fully flexible to turn on/off features including keeping on vertical scroll while turning off horizontal scroll. Added multi-finger gestures is useful (esp. to Spaces).

    Cons

    Sooo many features, hard to decide what to try and use :)

    Summary

    Solved problems that Magic Mouse prefs inadequate for large screens and provided excellent control of which gestures to turn on/off. Also provided many additional useful gestures (and some I did not find I would use).

    "This version is flawed."

    December 18, 2010   |   By mrtn242

    Version: MagicPrefs 2.0b4

    Pros

    Earlier versions worked fine for me.

    Cons

    Too many bells and whistles in this version.

    Summary

    In this version, I turned on middle click to change cursor to finger, could not get it to shut off even after disabling and quitting this version. Finally un-installed it to get my magic mouse to run properly.

    "A True Enhancement"

    April 01, 2010   |   By wtbixler

    Version: MagicPrefs 1.8.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm a little too uncoordinated to use many trackpad gestures but I do use MagicPrefs for restoring center button access to Dashboard and adding tracking speed. The developer is quite responsive to questions too. Very nice work!
