    I just picked up a Magic Mouse and I was wondering what the consensus is on which functionality add-on application is better and why:

    BetterTouchTool

    or

    MagicPrefs


    I've included a poll. Isn't that fun?

    I prefer BetterTouchTool - its more flexible. However, I have found that if you have too many gestures at one time - there's more likely hood of a couple gestures being activated unexpectedly ( i.e., bugs ).

    I use Better Touch Tool but that is because it controls my trackpad too on my MBP. Magic Prefs looks good though too.

    I haven't tried bettertouchtool, but I can vouch for Magic Prefs, it works really well.. I've also tried MouseWizard which isn't free and its horrible.. doesn't work very well

    Just wanted to bump this and see if there are any new experiences with either of these products.

    Looking to get one of these soon!

    BTT works great.

    And isn't it free (I don't recall having to pay for it), so just get it and try it out.
