Editors' Review

by   / July 02, 2014

An advanced driver specifically developed for a USB/Bluetooth mouse, SteerMouse for Mac provides a number of functions that allow you to personalize the way your mouse behaves. This can increase the efficiency of your mouse and possibly boost your productivity.

Pros

Customization and different configurations for different applications: With SteerMouse for Mac, you can configure the different parts of your mouse, including the functions of the buttons, wheel, tilt wheel, and cursor. Even better, you can set the app to work differently depending on the application with which the mouse is used.

Sensitivity adjustment: You can adjust the sensitivity or the reactivity of the mouse and cursor movements using sliders. The effects are instantaneous, so it's easy to determine the best setting for you.

Predefined location for the mouse's pointer or cursor: This is similar to what can be done with a mouse on a Windows computer, but SteerMouse does more. You can set the cursor or mouse pointer to automatically position itself on one of the following buttons every time you load an application or open a window: Default button, Cancel button, Close button, Minimize button, Zoom button, or size control.

Cons

Limited support: This driver is not optimized to work with Apple's multitouch mouse or Apple's Magic TrackPad.

Not free: If you are an average Mac user and need something comparable to what SteerMouse does, you have free alternatives like BetterTouchTool and MagicPrefs.

Bottom Line

If you want to do more with your Bluetooth or USB mouse, you may consider getting SteerMouse for Mac. However, you have to pay $20 after the free 30-day trial period. Also, be reminded that SteerMouse should be the only mouse driver running in your system; otherwise, the pointer occasionally stops moving. The problem gets corrected after an inconvenient restart, though.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of SteerMouse for Mac 4.1.9.
