PhoneFinger transforms your Mac's mouse into a realistic simulated human finger for testing and demoing iPhone applications and websites.

Why would you want to do this? Because of the iPhone's high-resolution screen, Apple's iPhone simulator may use an area on your Mac's display that's far larger than an actual iPhone.

This makes designing and testing user interfaces troublesome. Software that's easy to use with a magnified screen and the precision of a mouse can be near impossible to use on the actual device. PhoneFinger puts things in perspective and reveals hidden usability problems.

What's New

  • Fixed crash that occurred on newer MacBooks with multi-touch trackpads.

Even the simplest app has to have one bug. This is no exception - the fingerprints are left about a knuckle lower then they should. Other than that, it's important for any system, even without any interest in iPhone programming.
Switching over to the gorilla hand when you run it on a 30" Apple Cinema Display is a nice touch.

Some features to look forward to in the boxed version -

No Hand mode - just leave the fingerprints around.
Drag-n-Drop Smudge streaks.
Adjustable greasiness and color stains, all the way up to "had a bag of Cheetos".
Fingernail growth.
Jabbing the finger if you ram into the menubar too fast.
A "trackpad" mode where the hand clicks with the thumb.
Hand holding a mouse mode. Not any ordinary mouse, but some of the most uncomfortable mice made, such as the Asus Mouse/Flash (google it), and the Apple Puck.
