Why You Should Use BetterTouchTool

As the above video describes, BetterTouchTool enables you to trigger over a 100 actions while your hand is your trackpad. With BetterTouchTool, can be more productive and not have to remember keyboard shortcuts or drag your cursor to the top of the screen to click menu items. You can simply swipe, click, or use force touch gestures to trigger menu items and other actions on your Mac. When you hand is already on your trackpad or mouse, you don’t have to always move it back to the keyboard in order to trigger an action. BetterTouchTool can even trigger multiple actions with a single assigned finger gesture.

What BTT course Students say

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.

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.

I was totally new to BetterTouchTool and was wondering how to learn more about it without getting overwhelmed by it’s many options. Enter Bakari’s BTT course. This course gets you started and shows you what’s possible, using easy-to-understand examples. And once you build confidence, it ramps up for more advanced options. I would never have mastered BTT without this tutorial.
