Do TONS more with your Magic Mouse

There’s no denying the “cool” factor of Apple’s Magic Mouse.  The sleek top, which allows for not only clicking but also swiping and pinching is a tremendous update to its previous version, the Mighty Mouse.

But if you need even more out of your Magic Mouse, well then I’ve got the application for you.

Magic Prefs is an add on for your Magic Mouse, which allows for a staggering amount of configurable add-ons.  “It features the ability to bind a variable number of finger clicks, taps, swipes, pinch and other gestures to functions like Middle Click , Hold Down Both Mouse Buttons , Spaces , Expose, Dashboard etc.”

The application also features a real-time display of your fingers touching the surface of the mouse so that you can enable it and test and monitor the way the mouse sees your input.  This comes in handy when you enable many of the application’s features at the same time.

Dan and I have both tried it out and while some of the add-ons take a little getting used to it’s certainly a welcome addition.
