SmoothCursor

2.6.413 June 2019

Custom mouse and trackpad acceleration.

Overview

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

Requirements for SmoothCursor

  • Mac OS X 10.7.0 or later

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.

SmoothCursor is available for download from our website. The download link is right next to the 'buy now' link as it has always been.

Hope this helps.

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.

It is of vital importance when one is reviewing/ commenting on ANY COMMERCIAL PRODUCT its cost versus its value go hand in hand.

I don't think you or any reader has any business trying to define the parameters of what should and shouldn't be said by the rest of us. I propse to ignore you, and I bet plenty of other readers will too.

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.
