Configure gestures to do anything on your Mac

Configure Gestures To Do Anything On Your Mac

BetterTouchTool is a great, feature packed application that allows you to configure many gestures for your Leap Motion Controller, Apple's Magic Mouse, Macbook Trackpad and Magic Trackpad. It also allows you to configure actions for keyboard shortcuts, normal mice and the Apple Remote. In addition to this it has an iOS companion App (BTT Remote) which can also be configured to control your Mac the way you want.

BetterTouchTool includes many goodies, like window snapping or an integrated window switcher.

You can set up application specific gestures, but also global ones. You can disable BetterTouchTool for specific apps in case the gestures you set up would conflict with that app.

Leap Motion Controller Gestures

BetterTouchTool's Leap Motion Controller support is in it's early development stages and will continue to improve fast. Currently it supports 27 gestures that can be set to do and control almost anything on your Mac.

Leap Motion Controller Mouse Control

BetterTouchTool now allows you to move your mouse cursor, click and scroll with your Leap Motion Controller. In contrast to other mouse control approaches BetterTouchTool allows you to rest your arm on the table. You only have to point with your fingers to move your mouse or click. If you encounter issues using the mouse control, please contact me.

    When I got a leap motion, this is the exact type of thing that I was looking for but did not think existed. Works 10 times better than I could have wished! I just honestly wish it had a Windows port. Thank you!

  • Great App for Controlling your Mac

    This app is much better than Touchless in terms of accuracy because you have to set each action yourself; you choose from a list of gestures and set an action for that gesture. There is a robust set of predefined actions, and you can use shortcuts for the rest. There are application-specific settings to keep your gesture sets from trampling each other. Touchless is better for full control, but BTT is a better utility. It'll be interesting to see how this tool improves.

  • Huge potential, and immediate usability

    I was able to do some cool things with this app immediately. There is some strange behaviour in the preferences interface, but easy to work with once you learn it. The richness and depth of what you can do is amazing. With a particular gesture, I have it opening and logging into my gmail for me. Another one opens google news. Endless configuration at the OS level, or as shallow as the application it self. Well done!

    Whats the deal with Airspace? Is there a trick you must use to download an app? It says purchased and in fact I couldn't download anything.

    I love the better touch tool app it what i been waiting for. Everything works great my only complaint is that the mouse cursor has slight tracking issues and that the drag and drop isn't working no matter what i try.

    Just downloaded this. This is exactly what I was looking for when I bought a Leap back on May 21st. Lets you map gestures to specific actions. Very responsive and easy.

    The best app so far if you want to get 100% funcionality over your leap motion. Scroll works better than the touchless app that was driving me crazy
