Um - I am using SL 10.6.8 and inertia scroll works fine with the Magic Mouse, BUT I could not get used to it and replaced it with a Logitech mouse. Now inertia scrolling is GONE :-(

Will this program enable inertia scrolling again for my Logitech mouse?

Thanks! :-)

Can someone please drop me a hint as to how to purchase this? When I got to the "buy" link from the website, it takes me to a Pay Pal link that's not in English. I wrote to the developer but haven't heard back. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Do you have a PayPal account? I went to the developer's site and clicked the Buy link, at which point I saw the same thing you did: an order processing screen that seems to be appearing in Dutch. However, when I logged into my PayPal account using the Login fields on the right hand side of the screen, it took me to an order confirmation page in English. I hope this information is helpful.

Alas, no, PayPal and I have issues with each other. I tried the pop-up menu to see the various countries, and neither the U.S. nor England are among them. But thanks for trying to help.

Developer - do you want my money? I want to give it to you!

Solved it! A bit of Google searching for "How do you say United States in Dutch" provided this: Verenigde Staten. Look for that in the pop-up menu, and it switches to the U.S.

I've used SmartScroll for a long time, but I get sick of how temperamental it is. Sometimes it mysteriously quits and I have to go to the preference pane to restart it. And it's annoying how often it breaks under even a minor OS upgrade so I have to live without until the developer puts out a new version. Really, programs like this ought not to be necessary- Apple ought to build inertial scrolling right into the OS. But until they do I'm going to buy and try this to see if it makes me happier than Smart Scrroll. So far it seems quite fine.

I concur, but overall Smart Scroll is smoother and has more customization features. That's not to say I don't like Ave Scroller; I did buy a license for it. For the most part, it's "Plan B" for those few days that Smart Scroll is being updated. And in general, Smart Scroll is always updated within only a few days. The developer offered an explanation as to the delay on the MU Smart Scroll page. It's reasonable.

I briefly had a MacBook i5, and found the built-in momentum scroll to be a huge jump in trackpad/mouse usability. But then I had to replace it with an earlier model, which didn't come with momentum scroll. Luckily I found this app. Easy to install, and no need to restart your computer.

Well worth the price. Give it a try, you'll be instantly hooked!

Funny, I tried to post a comment here last week, but I see it's gone now. It wasn't offensive or anything, so I can't see any reason that it would have been deleted. Whatever the case, I suggested in that comment that the dev change the demo mode so the 100 minutes don't keep counting down if the computer is idle. I started demoing this app, went to have dinner, then when I came back, the demo was expired and I had no chance to really evaluate the app. I should have quit the app before I left the computer, but, frankly, I don't think this is a very user-friendly model. After all, quitting a background utility every time I walk away from my machine is hardly habitual behaviour. I think that having the demo timer pause after, say, five minutes of idle time would be very helpful.

The demo time of 100 minutes is per session: simply restarting the app would have gotten you another 100 minutes of time to try it out :)

I've tried a few times to comment on this but haven't had any luck having it show up. Hope it works this time. First, the program seems to work fine (10.6.2). Second, the developers seem very responsive. Indeed, within hours after I contacted them, they added the "hide menu bar" feature. Third, I recognize that Smart Scroll already offers this feature and more. However, I do think that AveScroller is properly proportionally priced in relation to SmartScroll. (I own a license for SmartScroll; wonderful program; very responsive developer.) If AveScroller's sole feature is all you want, it's worth a look.
