Add InertialScroll to your multitouch-capable MacBook, and you'll wonder how you scrolled before....

Used scrolling on your iPhone/iPod/iPad?

Jealous of the early-2010 MacBooks and its fancy inertial scrolling capability?

This should support any MacBook with a multitouch capable trackpad. I don't have all the different MacBooks to test with so give it a try. Let me know your results. Works on my mid-2009 Unibody MacBook Pro.

Tested on Mac OSX 10.6.4, should work on 10.6+

The scrolling is not perfect, but it is still very good.

any chance this app could be made to support older macbooks with non-multitouch two finger scrolling trackpads?

I agree with Dorkypants. This would work much better as a prefpane (I have enough stuff cluttering my menu bar as it is). Another suggestion: The ability to control the amount of inertia, and possibly the ability to reverse the scroll directions (a la the iPhone/iPod/iPad).

Otherwise, a nicely done app.

One thing I just noticed, there's no "inertia" on horizontal scrolling. Why?

Works perfectly on my mid-2009 MBP 15". I'd like to see it as a prefpane, too. It doesn't really need to sit in the menubar. Otherwise fantastic app! Thanks for your work!

Nice! On initial use scrolling was a bit jerky, but when repeated it got smoother (mid-2009 MacBook Pro 13" running Snow Leopard 10.6.4).

Too early to rate it for stability.

I'd prefer it as a PrefPane rather than cluttering up the menubar.

With my macbook pro non unibody multitouch (the last non-unibody mbp) the scrolling is too slow, even though I set it on minimum in my system preferences.

Great App! Sits in your menubar, works perfectly, thanks to the devs who made this happen
