The Magic Mouse is Apple's latest innovation, superseding the good old Mighty Mouse and employing touchscreen technology to make maneuvering and surfing easier and more responsive.

Like the Mighty Mouse however, the Magic Mouse can be a bit limited at times so expect a whole line of Magic Mouse software like MouseWizard to come along and extend its functionality. MouseWizard is a very simple utility which enhances the use of your Magic Mouse and allows you to customize it to increase your productivity.

The main advantage of MouseWizard is that it adds three extra buttons, namely, 'pinch', 'bloat', and 'tap to click' trackpad gestures. It also features a few special add-ons, such as 'coverup' to put your Mac into sleep mode. The main interface is very easy to use, allowing you to configure what type of clicks do what such as configuring a middle-click for Exposé or a fourth click to open Spotlight etc. If you get stuck, a handy wizard takes you through the configuration process by telling you where to place your hands on the Magic Mouse.

The major benefit of MouseWizard is enabling you to have a middle mouse button which many people criticized when Magic Mouse was released. At the moment though, there is a known issue with the battery indicator not working with MacBooks, although the developer is looking into this.

MouseWizard is a well designed application that adds much needed functionality to the Magic Mouse.

    "on the buggy side"

    good try but too poorly designed , especially for a commercial application , sticking with magicprefs has more features ... More.
