BetterTouchTool

Licence: Freeware
Version 0.992 | Release Date: 2013-12-11 | Download

Added two new predefined actions for OS X Mavericks "Move Window One Space/Desktop Left" and ""Move Window One Space/Desktop Right". Those are quite hacky but they work well on my system (Mavericks only).
Hopefully fixed a bug that regularly crashed BTT when using custom tap sequences

Version 0.75 | Release Date: 2011-12-01 | Download
No changes specified
Version 0.732 alpha | Release Date: 2011-10-31 | Download
  • very basic support for multitouch Wacom tablets, but gestures may not work as well as on apple devices yet (because they are not optimized for the different size etc.) but I really like my new Wacom tablet so I’m probably going to add better support soon Pinch & Rotate are currently not supported for those tablets.
  • if you add a gesture more than once (see screenshot below) BetterTouchTool will now show a contextmenu instead of performing one of them randomly. Also if you add notes the notes will be shown in the menu instead of the gesturename / shortcut)
  • fixes an issue with the middleclick action
  • right-clicking a trackpad gesture allows you to select if this gesture should work on all connected trackpads, only on built-in trackpads, only on the magic trackpad or only on other trackpads.
Version 0.73 | Release Date: 2011-10-16 | Download

So I just uploaded 0.73 to normal auto update (for Lion users, alpha update for Snow Leopard users). I hope I didn’t introduce really nasty bugs, if I did please report them as soon as possible .

Here a short summary what has changed since the last normal update:

*added two new gestures for the Magic Mouse: “two finger double-tap” and “three finger double-tap” (disable doubletap gestures in your System Preferences if you want to use the ones in BTT)
*fixed various issues with the remote control
*added new predefined action “paste custom text”
*you can now copy all gestures from one app to an other by right-clicking on the app.
*various fixes for different predefined actions (launchpad, dashboard, middleclick…)
*rewrote the swipe recognition algorithms for the magic mouse completely (they should produce less false positives now)
*some window snapping fixes
*various other fixes & improvements.
if you encounter any issues please let me know!

No changes specified
Version 0.622 | Release Date: 2010-09-16 | Download
  • fixed some bugs that could crash BTT
  • the rounded corners for window snapping should look better now
  • Introduces three finger clickswipes for the trackpad and magic trackpad (click and then do a three finger swipe while holding the trackpad clicked)
    If you use three finger clickswipes the behavior of the three finger click will change. Without clickswipes it will trigger as soon as the trackpad is pressed down. With clickswipes activated it will not trigger until you release the trackpad again.

    They won’t work on early 2008 macbooks and macbook airs.
  • sensitivity settings for two and three finger tap aren't ignored anymore
  • tipswipes shouldn't move the cursor anymore (I block the movement as good as possible for me)
  • some other bugfixes
  • three and four finger click on early 2008 macbook pros (MacbookPro4,1) still not working
  • please report any bug/ crash you encounter using the built in "report feedback" feature. (and enter your mailadress, so I can debug the issue with you :-))

  • for more information checkout http://blog.boastr.net
  • currently BTT needs to disable the three finger dragging introduced with the new trackpad driver. I'll see if I can enable it with one of the next versions.
  • I had to change quite a few things and I'm sure this introduced new bugs. Please report everything you encounter. If necessary you can always downgrade to previous versions (get them via my blog)

Version 0.49999 | Release Date: 2010-01-12 | Download

This version changes many very basic things about BTT. If you encounter problems you can always go back to previous versions.

global shortcuts like cmd+space or F1 etc. can now be entered directly if access for assistive devices is enabled in your system preferences => universal access

BTT can now TRY to recognize if you press harder on the right side of the mouse or on the left side. So you can have two fingers on your mouse and do a left OR a rightclick. This must be activated in the preferences tab mouse => clicks => "Two finger click left and rightclick recognition".

applescript support (via open application / file / script predefined action)

removed F Keys because they can now set directly
