SmoothCursor 2.6.1


SmoothCursor is a menu-bar application that provides separate controls for customizing the mouse and trackpad accelerations. It is the perfect tool to use in combination with drawing applications and FPS games!

System Notifications: SmoothCursor will display a system notification every time a different profile is activated using Growl or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion’s Notification Center. (This feature is optional and can be disabled by the user)

User-definable Hotkey: One of the most relevant features in version 2.0 is the ability to alternate between 2 profiles using an user-definable HotKey.

Alternating between acceleration profiles can be accomplished in 2 different ways:

  • Mode 1: Activates alternative profile after Hotkey is released
  • Mode 2: Activates alternative profile while Hotkey is pressed

Other Features:

  • Streamlined user interface always available from the status bar
  • Supported acceleration ranges: normal acceleration (>0 to 6),no acceleration (0), inverse acceleration (-6 to <0)
  • Automatically start at login (user-definable)
  • Special enforce mode: preserves user acceleration settings even if some other processes try to change them

Demo Limitations:

  • The application shuts down after 20 minutes
  • User settings are not saved


  • SmoothCursor comes with built-in support for the following languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Catalan, Russian, and Japanese (日本语)!
