A life saver.

I've bought a Logitech mouse that says mac osx compatible, but actually all you can do is click left or right button, and they are clearly stating that they don't plan to do anything about it (official claim at the logitech forums)

If you're like me - deceived by false advertising, this piece of software does everything and a heck lots more than the crappy logitech mouse software.

Dig the advanced section for 15 mins and you'll find everything you need for EVERY mouse brand. Brilliant! Will help the developer for sure.

Hurray! With some difficulty I was able to configure BetterTouchTool to invoke Boinx Mousposé with the Magic Mouse that came with my new 27" iMac. I am visually impaired and sometimes I lose track of the cursor. Mousposé (http://www.boinx.com/mousepose/overview/), among other things, grays the scree with selectable transparency except for a customizable circle of light around the cursor.

I have been using a Kensington Expert Mouse for years. It uses a roller-ball to move the cursor and has four buttons you can set to a wide range of actions - including, in my case, one button to invoke Mouseposé. Of course that cannot be done with the built-in software for Apple's Magic Mouse, which is almost as limited as the old Apple (no longer Mighty) mouse. BetterTouchTool enabled me to use Mouseposé once more.

The Magic Mouse has a number of desirable features, in particular the ability to scroll in any direction, something the Expert Mouse cannot easily do. And the scroll control is much better than the Export Mouse, which seems to have lost some of its sensitivity over the years. Now I'll have to spend some time with BBT to see if I can configure the actions I used other Expert Mouse buttons for.

I love it...

Is there a way to implement eject button control for a keyboard?

Let's say I need it to start an AppleScript and i don't want to use another app for only that purpose...

There is no key code for the EJECT key. So, it can not be invoked, i think. the way you want it. You can use 'drutil eject' with shell script, BUT, that is for ejecting drives in particular.

tell application "Finder" to eject (every disk whose ejectable is true)

I am aware of that, that is why I ask for such functionality...

What I really want is to start my script for ejecting and mounting internal HDD (i have SSD in my ODC) through eject key on my keyboard. With no optical drive in my MBP that would be a great way to reuse eject key.
I don't wan't to have another app like KeyRemap4MacBook running all the time in the background just for that purpose, and I think BTT would be great for that, since it already has keyboard shortcuts implemented and it is indispensable app on our macs... it "only" needs a way to use eject key...

Snapped windows overlap ocassionally and especially buggish with stock mail app. Also would be great if the windows can reflow.

Lots of usability but still buggish. The windows overlap each other from time to time!

despite the (confusing) name and description the best thing this does is being an universal and GREAT driver for every USB keyboard and mouse in existence. just buy any random PC mouse or keyboard and use this to set up every special key or button. works better than most drivers most 3rd party manufacturers may have so use it instead of the official driver even if you mouse/keyboard has official mac support. just great. i use several unsupported logitech mice and keyboards on the mac with everything working perfectly.

The one mac app that I swear by. Nothing like it exists for windows, as far as I know. It makes making shortcuts and gestures very easy to set and do and extends to the magic mouse as well. The options for available gestures and actions are numerous as well.

My mac experience wouldn't be half of what it is without better touch tool.

Once in a while there are occasional stability issues where the gestures don't respond and I need to restart the program for it to work again, but it might not be better touch tool's fault.

I don't know why the bleep this isn't part of Safari to begin with. I'm glaring at you, Safari developers! But this little app works great! Just downloaded it and it did exacatly what it was supposed to. Listen up, Apple, you knuckleheads! I love ya, but get real!

Okay, this is actually my review for SafariSort, but I'm an idiot and hit the wrong icon. Ignore me, I'll go away now.

You're not an idiot. And you gave a 5-star rating to a 5-star program, so no harm done!

I originally got this so I could use my Magic Trackpad to do two finger swipes to go back and forward in the Finder, but since then have found other uses for it too, and added some of my own gestures.
