    it works but not the same way as the original one,
    because the original 4 touch, you can hold down you fingers and let go it will return to the original state,
    but with the BTT, i can no longer use the hold down method.

    How to I set the 3 finger click to emulate the middle mousewheel button on regular mouses ? I was hoping that was possible, but I have searchd the whole net without any info on what the keyboard shortcut is for the middle mouse button. If there isnĀ“t any, could you make that feature ? :) For me that is all I want!…

    Oh wow, this is amazing. I’ve set my magic mouse to use Expose on 3 finger click and switch Spaces with every directional swipe. This helps soooo much. Thank You!!!

    my magic mouse was going back because of lack of expose. Not now, this is brilliant. Even better than the old side buttons!

    I wasn’t gonna buy the magic mouse just because of the lack of 3rd and 4th buttons, but now I’m gonna! ;D
    Thanks A LOT for doing this! And for keeping up with the development!
    (I can beta test if you need..)

    Can you please tell me how to view the BBT preferences. I have the three finger working OK but cannot find anywhere where the preference window is. I am running an imac 10.6.2.
