Ratings & Reviews

  • Good app

    3 of 5
    by user-889 – December 21, 2013

    The app works well, but sometime it acts a little bit strange. It tracks fingers even if there is no hand upon the leap controller.. And it's a little bit "tricky" when you want to open a link you just highlighted with the green pointer. There is room for improvement, but at least you can use the operating system with the leap controller.

  • Better

    3 of 5
    by user-5908 – January 25, 2014

    It's better than the free "Touchable" for simple point/click/scroll. But the reason I spent the money is that the app shortcut controls very much interested me, and I simply could not get pointable menus to work. This may be cause due to my monitor set up. Three monitors is not super common, I understand. But niche groups like the triple monitor crowd are more likely to dive into a niche product like Leap Motion. Just saying.

  • Simple, clean and amazing

    by user-6284 – January 4, 2014

    Since buying Pointable I've more or less stopped using my mouse (unless I have to). It is really simple to use (as it is based on just a couple of different movements with the hand) and setup and it's very customizable. The program feels responsive and is comfortable to use. Sometimes there is a problem with the "move window" function, but other than that I'm completely addicted!

    This is what I was looking for when I first got the leap controller. It took a little bit of work getting it just how I like it, but now it works fantastically. The customer assistance is phenomenal, the worked with me to solve every single issue I was having.

  • Great app and customer service. And will only get better.

    5 of 5
    by user-4919 – September 9, 2013

    It's the first app that didn't make me think the Leap was made for the Mac. Using it is simple, yet efficient. Talked to customer service (for a free program...) and they were great. Pros: DUAL MONITOR!, easy learning curve, efficient use of gesture for programs, easy setting of functions. Cons: Shaky pointer (Touchless' system is less shaky, but Pointable allows for mistakes when ''clicking'', because position is decided before clicking occurs). Overall a great program that will get better

  • DId you buy LEAP Motion for OS control? Look no further!

    5 of 5
    by user-3158 – October 6, 2013

    I admit LEAP Motion has been pretty underwhelming in terms of controlling the Windows OS. Pointable has since renewed my faith in LEAP Motion's potential. It is nearly perfect for OS control! It took me about 20-30 minutes to get used to it and after that I felt I was browsing just as fast as I would when using a mouse (and in some cases faster). This is the essential product for LEAP Motion and, in my opinion, should come bundled with the device.

    by user-3919 – September 9, 2013

    Really nice way to control your Windows without having to memorize lots of gestures or commands. Easy to calibrate and easy to use. Even customizing individual commands is quite nice and may lead to more productivity and fun working with your PC.
