On MBW 48: Pick of the Week is Fly Gesture
Merlin Mann | Jul 11 2007
Variable pricing comes to iTunes, iPhone hacks, and where's the Mac?
Mac users are familiar with doing stuff by clicking predefined menus with a mouse or by executing key commands, but Fly Gesture -- like Quicksilver's Abracadabra or Firefox's mouse gestures -- takes a different approach, allowing you to invoke bits of Mac functionality by drawing shapes with your mouse.
For certain kinds of tasks -- changing tabs in a browser, jumping to a favorite page -- gestures can be a faster and more painless way to get around. Regardless of preferences, though, I think this is just a really pretty application, and it's cool of Gus to give it away for free.
(Maybe say thanks by picking up the awesome VoodooPad.)
