    So I want to do a thing that really should be simple enough: change the scroll speed of the scroll wheel on my mouse on an application basis, so that I can set one speed in iTunes, another in Safari, etc.

    Specifically, what I'm trying to do is actually just increase the speed in iTunes (it is painfully slow), while keeping everything else normal.

    Does anybody know of a piece of software or a setting that allows me to do this?

    - That's fantastic! Precisely what I was looking for. Thank you.
    Do you know what the limitations in the trial version are? I haven't seen any except for the box that prompts you to register when opening the preferences pane.

    While a long-time Smart Scroll user, I do not know what, if any limitations, there are with the trial version. Also, I do not know how one assigns shortcut keys to change settings (i have never done such).

    I surmise a short note to the developer is preferable to my guesses. Indeed that's what I would do.

    Sorry to be standoffish, but I hate to give bad/incorrect advice.

    When the situation resolves, please post back as I would love to know the ideal solution/fix.

    - Now I'm confused. Solution to what?

    As far as I'm concerned, Smart Scroll does precisely what I wanted.

    Solition to how one switches from the scrolling speed of one app to the scrolling speed of a different app.

    - I don't know that there's a need to.
    You set the scrolling speed you want for all apps that you want different scrolling speeds for in Smart Scroll's settings. Then your scrolling simply works according to those settings when you scroll in your apps.
    There isn't any need to switch between anything. Unless I'm not understanding you properly?

    Thanks. I just didn't know it worked that way. It's even better and easier than I thought.

    And I'm pleased that it solved your problem.
