  • Very nice

    by Nutbolt – October 10, 2014

    Very nice little app. Loving controlling Spotify from this. Two bits of feedback. I know you stated it's being worked on, but can't stress enough support for multiple monitors. Lets be honest, if we have a LEAP Motion we are somewhat geeky, chances are we also have 2 monitors. Also, the ability to adjust how long until the media control wheel appears would amazing! I'm an impatient person and would be nice for me if it could come up faster, but I get not everyone is the same.

  • Windows 8.1 scroll problem

    3 of 5
    by Alexandros – October 7, 2014

    I have been using this app on windows 8.0 and just updated to 8.1. Right after the update the scrolling feature ceased to work. The osd comes up, and when grasping it is moves up and down but springs back to the center as if the scrolling is done. the window that should have been scrolled does not move and generally does not work. However the switch window function does work.

  • best working controlling application so far

    by Fusselmensch – October 7, 2014

    This application works nearly perfekt, especially the media controll is great! Only sometimes i´m having trouble with the application switcher, which sometimes randomly causes the app to crash (i´m using win 8.1). Only i´d like to have more features like control cursor, then the applikation is perfekt! Edit: I found out, that the crashes are caused by running "touchless for windows" parallely, even with tracking disabled.But this is easy to fix, by closing it ;)
