One of the joys of having a Mac is having access to tools that allow you to automate common tasks which increase your productivity. BetterTouchTool is a unique twist on automating your Mac as it does so using various input devices that are connected to your Mac such as the Magic Trackpad, Mouse, Keyboard, and even your iOS device. Each of these devices can be set up using BetterTouchTool to run automations with the click of a mouse, taps on a trackpad or even by drawing gestures on your trackpad.
