    Hello,

    I have had bluetooth mouse for few days and I experience one problem. The scroll button does not work. Is there any tweak that will make functionable it? And I have on mouse two additional buttons. Is it possible to attach them some function?

    Thank you.

    Best Regards
    Thomas.

    Get BTC Mouse & Trackpad, it's GREAT (more info: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1465193 )

    ----------

    As I've also explained in my review,

    "As the description of the tweak also states (“Scroll wheel: On SpringBoard, navigates the pages. In other apps, a pinch/zoom gesture is simulated.”), scroll wheels (for example, the touch area on the HP Presenter mice - one of the BT mice I've tested the tweak with) don't scroll Web pages or documents but gradually pinch them to zoom. (And, if it's a (non-mechanical) touch wheel, it'll scroll over SpringBoard app pages very fast!) As Safari (or any other iOS Web browser - the engine is, unfortunately, way less capable than, say, Opera Mobile in this respect) doesn't reflow text at a given zoom level, it's pretty much useless."

    EDIT: turns out I was wrong. See http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=19102872&postcount=9

    From description: "Scroll wheel: On SpringBoard, navigates the pages. In other apps, view scrolls up/down."
    Isn't there written that in other apps it can scroll up/down with the scroll wheel? Or did I misunderstood this setence? If yes I apologize for my bad english

    Out of interest have you emailed BTC Mouse and trackpad support?

    I did a few weeks ago and the response was very helpful - not related to this and I can't remember how long the reply took either, think it was about a week but not sure.

    Yes, I sent them an E-mail few days ago but with no resposne yet. So I have to wait about one week, you say. Ok.

    I've just tested the current version on my 7.0.6 rMini. You're right - now the scrollwheel indeed scrolls Safari pages, unlike with the version I tested / reviewed earlier, which only simulated pinching in Safari. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I've tested this with the Logitech M-RCQ142.

    So in version 1.6-1 of BTC Mouse & Trackpad scroll wheel works for scrolling pages in Safari and in previous version it does not?

    Yes, it (1.6-1) does work with Safari, at least with my mouse.

    1.0-3 surely not. Dunno when it was added.
