Apple has multi-touch everywhere. Mac notebooks, Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse, iPhone and iPad, of course, and then there’s the new Force Touch trackpads in the new line of MacBook and MacBook Pro models.
Force Touch means more options for users, but if you really want some multi-touch control, try BetterTouchTool. This utility gives you more granular controls so touch can be fine tuned for each multi-touch device and your personal workflow.
Now, get this. Not only does BetterTouchTool give you more controls over each multi-touch device, it expands the number of fingers you can use, and lets you control each aspect of each touch– finger by finger, tap by tap.
For example, you can setup multi-touch controls for a specific Mac application. Plus, there’s Window Snapping, Window Moving and Resizing Controls, and an option to control Settings for Predefined Actions.
BetterTouchTool provides an incredible amount of control for each device, and how each touch is used. That includes options for keyboard shortcuts, standard mouse buttons, and even Apple Remote. There’s BetterTouchTool for iOS, but it doesn’t control the iPhone or iPad’s multi-touch controls; instead you can use it as a remote control for your Mac.
BetterTouchTool works well and is priced right. Here’s the only negative. This utility can get complex very quickly, so start slowly, adjust the multi-touch options that work for you (the app is short on documentation; a video showing setup would be handy), otherwise the controls can appear so daunting you’ll run screaming back to Apple’s multi-touch controls.
