SmoothCursor for Mac2.6.4

13 June 2019

Custom mouse and trackpad acceleration.

What is SmoothCursor for Mac

SmoothCursor is a menu-bar application that provides separate controls for customizing the mouse and trackpad accelerations. It is the perfect tool to use in combination with drawing applications and FPS games!

User-definable Hotkey: One of the most relevant features in version 2.0 is the ability to alternate between 2 profiles using an user-definable HotKey, which can be accomplished in 2 different ways:

  • Mode 1: Activates alternative profile after Hotkey is released
  • Mode 2: Activates alternative profile while Hotkey is pressed
Other Features
  • Streamlined user interface always available from the status bar
  • Supported acceleration ranges: normal acceleration (>0 to 6), no acceleration (0), inverse acceleration (-6 to <0)
  • Automatically start at login (user-definable)
  • Special enforce mode: preserves user acceleration settings even if some other processes try to change them
Demo Limitations
  • The application shuts down after 20 minutes
  • User settings are not saved

What's new in SmoothCursor

Version 2.6.4:
Updated:
  • Application self-updating mechanism (Sparkle) to a current version
  • All external URLs to use secure protocol (https.)
Fixed:
  • Status bar icon not being visible when using macOS Mojave in dark mode

Reviews should be for discussing software, not whether the app is overpriced or not. One can buy something or search out for free alternatives instead of burning software to the ground because it costs a few dollars. Think that's no the intention of this site. Anyway, this app works as advertised and does that very well. Glad to pay a few dollars to contribute to more development and support.

Does what is promises and has a very appealing interface. A great feature is to switch the mouse acceleration with a keyboard shortcut. This is very helpful when doing photo editing.

The increasingly frequent practice of replacing an app that was originally offered as free software with an upgraded version that is only offered commercially has a high potential for damaging consumer confidence.

Nice little app, problem is, if you disable acceleration, the pointer moves ridiculously slow... in which you need to turn up the tracking speed... however, when you do this the app apparently slows it down to an unusable speed again due to its "Special Enforce Mode". It wasn't quite what I thought; I was hoping to achieve mouse pointer behavior similar to, dare I say it, Windows, which is much more linear compared to OS X.

Very nice application. It would be handy to have GUI sliders accessible right from menu bar popup window. Something like FinalTouch http://www.finaltouchapp.com

Seems like a nice free app. Is the acceleration feature the same as the acceleration offered by CursorSense? Definitely would sacrifice only being able to go to 6 if they are indeed the same setting being adjusted.
