The company that handled my online sales unexpectedly ceased operation on July 31st. I had no advance notice so there is no way right now to purchase a USB Overdrive license, but I am working hard to provide an alternative solution as quickly as possible. Rest assured that the USB Overdrive is still fully supported and maintained.

USB Overdrive 3.2 is ready for El Capitan.

The latest release of the USB Overdrive works great in Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and still supports 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.8 Mountain Lion. It works with USB and Bluetooth mice, keyboards, trackballs, trackpads, joysticks, gamepads and gaming devices from almost any vendor.

Apple Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2 and Magic Keyboard: Supporting Apple's Magic devices would disable their built-in functionality. I am therefore no longer handling any Apple devices in the USB Overdrive, so you can use their original Mac OS X multitouch gestures without any interference.

New in version 3.2:

  1. -Fully aware of Apple's latest Magic devices

  2. -Added a way to fix R.A.T. mouse hovering issues

New in version 3.1:

  1. -Ready for El Capitan and Yosemite

  2. -Added support for Bluetooth keyboards and gaming devices

  3. -All keys on external keyboards can now be configured

New in version 3.0.2:

  1. -No longer tries to handle Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse

  2. -Updated Login Items and Installer code to support Mountain Lion

  3. -Added code signature for Mountain Lion installation

New in version 3.0.1:

  1. -Added support for media buttons on Logitech keyboards

  2. -Restored support for scroll buttons on various Logitech mice

  3. -Restored specific support for Logitech G5 and MX518

  4. -Fixed freewheel scrolling for Logitech mice that have it

  5. -Restored specific support for the Griffin PowerMate

  6. -Added specific support for the Kensington SlimBlade Trackball

  7. -Added specific support for the World of Warcraft gaming mouse

  8. -Restored left-handed configuration of the Wireless Mighty Mouse

  9. -Relaxed HID compliance requirements to better support bad devices

New in version 3.0:

  1. -Snow Leopard 64-bit kernel support

  2. -New and much improved user interface

  3. -Powerful new low-level engine

  4. -Many new assignable actions

  5. -Device-specific and location-specific settings

  6. -Import/export settings files

  7. -Support for more devices, buttons and controls

  8. -Support for media buttons on most USB keyboards

  9. -Advanced mouse pointer options

  10. -New scrolling method

Missing in action:

  1. -Old settings from version 10.4.8 cannot be imported to the new version. I am really sorry about this, but the old settings were handled by legacy code that is no longer supported in 64-bit. The good news is that this will never happen again, as you can now import and export settings at will.

System requirements for version 3.1:

  1. -Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks or 10.8 Mountain Lion

Support for older Mac OS X releases:
