be honest now.
to be honest..i was pretty excited about the fact that multitouch came to the mbp.. but since i got it.. i havent used it. I can't seem to make the pinching for zooming gesture work for me in iphoto, it zooms in safari though. And I havent developed a habit for 3 fingers scrolling yet.
I like the Multitouch abilities very much, though I also count two-finger scrolling and right-click. I often use the method of moving a window by a finger-tap, too and use the three-finger navigation in Safari, which is more comfortable IMHO than using the trackpad to go the buttons.
I don't use zoom and pinch, though.
Everysince I installed Multiclutch, I just it all the time.
I've had my new MBP just under a week and haven't used it at all yet, I was also quite excited.
But since it doesnt work in Aperture or Firefox, that only leaves Finder I could use it in...
I guess I will play around with it a bit in the longer term, but so far, nope.
I use Multi-touch all the time. I use it to back and forwards in safari and finder all the time. I sometimes use it for zooming in, but yeah, mostly safari and finder
All the time. Once you get used to the three-finger swipe forward and back in Safari it's great, as is the zoom of pinch/stretch (I use firefox on pc but am fine with safari so far) I don't go out of my way to find programs that use or need it, but it'll be nice as more programs do support it.
I swipe a bit in finder, wish it worked with cover flow. Unless I havn't figured it out yet. Seems to be most functional when viewng pdf files ive noticed so far. Not sure why I want to rotate a pdf but I can
edit: well I just noticed you can select your icons on desktop and pinch zoom, that explains why they keep changing size lol
I actually use it a lot everyday. The main gesture I use is the 3 finger swipe to go back and forward in Safari. I use the zoom and rotate gestures every once in a while.
It does work with Aperture.
I've been getting used to the new gestures and finding them very useful once they become habit.
Right-click on two finger + mouse button is great, zoom and rotate are good once you figure out a finger combination that works for you. I use my index and middle fingers. Rotate just requires a quick flick of the fingers rather than a fully described circle motion, get that down and it becomes a lot more useful.
Still working with three finger scrolling as I've tended to have cmd+direction keys set up before and that combo is very easy to use on the mbp.
I don't have single tap to click turned on as I found it was picking up too many false negatives.
I use the forward and back three finger swipe quite often in Safari, and only occasionally in Finder. I don't use the zoom feature much, an quite frankly wish there were a way to disable as I seem to accidentally zoom when I don't want to.
I guess two-finger scrolling might work for that, as it's not limited to scrolling up and down.
cool, thanks man!
The current gestures are a bit limited.
Apple needs to add more.
the only two things i've found intuitive are the picture rotating in iPhoto and the 3 finger swiping in safari - all are very useful!
double tap to right click?
two finger scroll?
tap to lock and drag?
uhhh...these features were all there before multitouch. i am talking about the new features.
I use it all the time, I love the scroll! When I'm desiging in Photoshop or Illustrator and am really close its a really fast movement and keeps me going, I like it very much so, only bad part is that you can't zoom in photoshop.
