Comment on FlyGesture

Thanks to the dev for freeing this :beer: I've used this for a day, and I personally find this quite limited (as a long-time gesture lover). First off, I'm used to using the right-mouse button to trigger gestures. If I configure this to do that, then it breaks my context menus universally (bad!). Forcing one to use a keyboard activator defeats the purpose of gestures and slows everything down.

Secondly, and significantly, there is no application=level support. I cannot specify specific gestures for different apps, nor exclude applications which may have their own gesture system (thus breaking their gestures system).

Thirdly, the grid system this uses is not very intuitive for me, and doesn't 'scale' (perform the same gesture with different sizes means different gesture, should be the same). slightly hitting another grid position breaks the recognition. I find this much more fragile than other gesture systems.

If these matter to you, then xGestures ($5) is an excellent alternative; it is much more powerful in it's gesture management:

Flygestures itself looks very well written and the grid display is pretty :-) My criticisms are meant constructively, and this may work well for you...
