Scroll Reverser is a free app for Mac OS X that reverses the direction of scrolling. You can use it with OS X 10.5 and OS X 10.6 to make your scrolling match the 'natural scrolling' in OS X 10.7.

You can also use it with OS X 10.7 to customise scrolling behaviour beyond what is possible in system preferences, for example to reverse the trackpad but not the mouse.

Scroll Reverser is small, simple and efficient and works with all mice and trackpads with a scroll wheel or scroll gesture support, including MacBook trackpads, Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse, and Mighty Mouse.

What's New

Version 1.6:
  • Updated the status icon for retina displays.
  • Better accuracy detecting traditional wheel mice from trackpads. (No change to Magic and Mighty mouse detection.)
  • Added the option to automatically check for updates.
  • Fix minor bug which casused a console warning about 'scrollPhase is deprecated...'.
  • Requires OS X 10.7 and above. (Version 1.5.1 still supports OS X 10.4 and above.)

Requirements

OS X 10.7 or later

Simple and does what it says.
I have to wonder about this "it is the natural direction to scroll a page". What? 51% of people surveyed preferred the direction Apple hard-wired it to now? In my mind I am pulling the scroll-bar down, and that is natural to me. Also my PC's scroll is the same direction - and in gaming scrolling back is to pull back/going lower.
There's nothing like forced "naturality" to get on one's nerves.
Thanks heaps for this useful little app.

Thank you for this!!! Why the hell Apple would tie the mouse and trackpad scroll together is beyond me!

Brilliant! I am running Leopard on an old PPC G5 tower next to my Mavericks system and wanted to have the scrolling the same as in the newer OS. I did have to go to the developer's website to download the older version (1.5.1) in order to run on my system. Seems to work flawlessly so far. Thanks!

Great!! Gives you the flexibility to enable natural scrolling on the trackpad, but disable it on the mouse.

So the latest version doesn't work on 10.5 and 10.6. WTF is the point of a 'Scroll Reverser' then?

It's useful on 10.7+ to reverse the mouse but not the trackpad (or vice versa), which is not possible in System Prefs. The previous version for 10.4+ is still available on the website at http://pilotmoon.com/scrollreverser

I intentionally subscribed just to give this comment.
Scroll reverser is absolutely stunning. Simple yet very efficient.
I just got my new imac with OS 10.8.4 with the magic trackpad.
Imagine my dismay that the movement/scrolling of the trackpad is opposite to what I'm used to from my macbook pro. I can understand if this is an iphone or tablet wherein you can touch the actual screen and the swiping movement is in its natural direction but not the trackpad, this should be exactly like the one we are used to in a laptop. I'm dissapointed why apple overlooked such a simple flaw in design + function.
Anyway, this saved me a lot of time in "getting used" to with the new movement, and just get down immediately to work.

this is what I was looking for (since I don't like SL scrolling system and I prefer the new one but I don't want to upgrade my OS to Lion)

Fantastic stuff. Thanks very much. Didn't know natural scrolling could have so many options (individual settings of on/off for mouse/trackpad/tablet, etc).
