Synaptics touchpads get multi-touch gestures support

Posted on Monday, January 04 2010 @ 21:29:16 CET by

Touchpad maker Synaptics has unveiled a new beta version of its Gesture Suite software that adds support for multi-touch gestures. The new Scrybe application lets users draw symbols on their touchpads to open applications, search the web, and carry out more complex tasks. If you have a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad you can sign up here to get access to the beta. Not all gestures will work on old touchpads though.
Once the Scrybe software is loaded up, Synaptics says users can do a three-finger tap or three-finger press to bring up the gesture input overlay. That overlay lets folks draw preset gestures like the question mark, which can "automatically launch the browser and perform an immediate directed search for the selected word or phrase." There's more, of course:

The personalized gesture suite can be used to run presentations or enjoy digital media, provide controls for play, pause, previous, and next commands and to advance through music lists, photos, and more. A user can also use the personalized gesture suite to rotate, crop, tag, rate, and enhance images, as well as perform Windows system functions -- all without ever lifting a hand from the TouchPad.
