"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.

"I cannot wait to use it later when I upgrade to Lion."

June 10, 2011  |  By Patrick Boivin

I use my fingers a lot with my iPad and cannot wait to use it with Lion.

It may mean getting trackpad for my iMac but can't wait for Lion.

"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!
