Waggle My Mouse Icon

The Second Waggle is Out !

It Snuck Out

They say software doesn’t get released, it sneaks out.

I am pleased to say that Waggle My Mouse version 2 is now available on Gum Road ! This new release features a whole bunch of new features and re-written old ones.

You can find the new version on Waggle My Mouse available for purchase on Gum Road

As I previously mentioned I’ve provided a copy of the new version of Waggle to everyone who purchased a copy of the original version. Overall the feedback has been really positive. I’d had some good suggestions for improvement too, and I do plan to work on this for a future update. In the mean time Waggle is now available for every to check out and download.

New Features

The new version of Waggle now has:

  • A new icon; I got rid of my mouse cartoon guy. I liked him, but thought the new version could do with a new icon!
  • A new algorithm for detecting Waggle’s.
  • A new animation; when a Waggle is detected the circles will grow and animate, then shrink and eventually vanish when you slow the waggle down.
  • A start on boot; by default, Waggle will automatically start when you login to your machine, you can turn this off by right clicking the waggle arrow in the notification tray and selecting “about” – there is a new dialog box with a check box.
  • A new window display routine; In the old version the circles would sometimes appear hidden behind other windows. I’ve worked hard to try to fix this. It seems a whole lot more reliable now.
