MagicPrefs is a tool that allows you to better configure your Magic Mouse. For those who don't know what a Magic Mouse is; it is a multi-touch mouse developed by Apple. It allows you to use a combination of trackpad gestures and mouse movements to control your Mac. MagicPrefts is a free tool that adds a preference pane and a menu bar to your Mac that give you quick access to your Magic Mouse preferences.

The preference pane allows you to do a variety of things like setting the tracking speed and touch sensitivity. There are three tabs: clicks and taps, swipes, and drag, pinch etc. The first one allows you to set actions to the buttons and different multi-touch gestures. For example, you can set an action for a one-finger middle button click and a different one for a three-finger click on the mouse. You can also set the Magic Mouse to work with taps instead of clicks, which is something a lot of users like. At the bottom of the screen, there is a button that takes you to the scrolling configuration window.

I like the fact that MagicPrefs allows you to configure your Magic Mouse and then save different presets that you can easily switch to at a later time. The menu bar is also very convenient.
