Add more gestures to the Magic Mouse.

Overview

Sesamouse adds more gestures to the Magic Mouse, like real pinch zooming and rotation. It even sends finger positions for advanced multitouch software to use.

What's new in Sesamouse

Version 1.2 moves Sesamouse to the menu bar, and adds configurable swipe actions: * Converted Sesamouse icon to system menu bar to avoid taking space in the Dock. * Added options to trigger Exposé, Desktop, Spaces or Dashboard actions for up and down swipes. * Since beta: made swipe options less opinionated, added note about gestures to preferences window.

One other note: If you have a newer MacBook or MacBook Pro with the multitouch "glass" trackpad, Sesamouse will probably not work correctly with a connected Magic Mouse. I'll be looking into a fix, but for now it will work best if you don't already have a gesture-capable computer.

I've been following the development of Sesamouse, MagicPrefs and BetterTouchTool and used all three extensively. For me, Sesamouse, whilst not as customisable as the other two, is the most stable and reliable. I have scroll lag issues with both others and find MagicPrefs particularly frustrating when I try to perform one gesture (i.e. swipe left/right) only to have another gesture execute as well (zoom in/out). And BTT will often just quite. The only issue I've ever had with Sesamouse is very occasionally, it stops recognising my zoom in gestures. A simple click on the application's Mouse Viewer seems to fix it. I commend the developer for approaching this app sensibly - it simply just works.

Does absolutely nothing at all.

OK, I thought I'd give Sesamouse one more go as I've been getting a little frustrated with BTT and MagicPrefs. This time, whilst it doesn't have the myriad of options the others do, it seems to be quite stable and pinch, swipes and scrolls work well. My biggest issue with the other two was that 1. scrolling would always lag and 2. swiping back or forward would often result in text size going bigger or smaller (i.e. pinch to zoom). Sesamouse so far has had none of the problems with others have. Watch this space folks. If the developer sticks with it, this app has great potential.

Does nothing. I just get an image of the mouse and nothing else happens, whatever I do with the magic mouse.
