USB Overdrive Beta Released for OS X
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

After quite a wait, Alessandro Levi Montalcini has released an early public beta for Mac OS X of the incredibly popular — some would say necessary — shareware utility USB Overdrive.

Montalcini says there are a number of caveats with the beta:

  • The user interface needs to be polished, and the icon is ugly.
  • The Joystick/Gamepad section is not yet enabled. This beta only works with mouse or trackball devices.
  • AutoScroll is temporarily disabled (will be ready soon).
  • Accelerated Scrolling is not yet functional (will be ready soon).
  • Use Global Settings is not yet functional (will be ready soon).
  • The "Auto Move" option is gone until I figure out if it's doable in Mac OS X.
  • The user installation process should be improved.
The small download is very much worth a try, and if you register now you can get both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X versions.
