My Go-To source for Automation Tips...

MacAutomationTips is now my go-to source for researching new apps to improve my efficiency for my legal business. I've learned the valuable lesson that if I can figure out even a minor hack to be more efficient-- that minor hack can save hundreds of hours of inefficient work. Taking the BetterTouchTool course helped me automate tasks so I could spend more time face to face with my legal customers and my family rather than wasted in front of the computer.

Very Helpful to Master BTT

As a Home Automation Specialist, I constantly use a lot of web based services and "control panels'. Configuring BTT shortcuts makes navigation within and between all the different systems I have to use a lot easier. BTT can be complicated and intimidating when using for the first time.

The BTT course makes it easier and faster to get up to speed and start using BTT.

You rock!

Bakari! Just wanted to send you a huge shout of thanks for your site and for your Better Touch Tool course. I feel like I have entered a whole new world! Thanks for taking the time to create the course. BTT is so incredibly powerful, and I can't believe how much faster it is than almost everything else. You rock! PS I would really love to see you do a course on Keyboard Maestro. Your teaching style is great, and I don't feel like anyone has really done a great KM course anywhere yet.

Product Overview Section

The purpose of this section is to provide an overview of your product. This could be an outline of chapters in your ebook, lessons in your course, modules in your coaching program etc. The reader should come away from this with a very clear idea of what they will get for their money.


Intro video tutorials: The first section of video tutorials go over the user interface BetterTouchTool and its main features. You will be creating your first action and gestures within a few minutes of viewing the second video.


My course provides lots of examples of actions and gestures you can use with Mac applications. I explain how to use BetterTouchTool with Safari so that you can navigate between web pages, quickly view your favorite bookmarks and history, and close tabs without using keyboard shortcuts or dragging your finger to the menu bar.


My course covers the advance features of BetterTouchTool.  It took me over a year to become aware of the advance features BetterTouchTool has to over, but with my course you'll learn about advance features in a very short time and apply what you learn to your own workflow..

Constantly setting up new gestures...

This is a superb resource and after discovering the MacAutomationTips website I have integrated many automation tools into my daily workflow: BTT, Hazel, Automator, Workflow App, Snappy App and Keyboard Maestro to name but a few.

I had heard how great BTT was so I was curious to find out more about it. I took part in Bakari's course and came away feeling like a power user.

The course is well paced and consists mainly of video lessons with some pdf support material. It is easy to follow along and try out what has just been taught. All BTT's features are covered from setting up simple gestures to power tips. I would recommend this course to anyone. After completing it you will constantly be setting up new BTT gestures. Be warned though. It will make it harder working on computers without BTT installed.
