People with cerebellar affections, multiple sclerosis, ataxias, essential tremors, traumatic brain injuries, Parkinson, cerebral palsy, etc. might benefit from this app.
Ease Mouse works for tablets and smartphones with Android 7.0 or higher.
HOW IT WORKS?
It provides three (3) operation modes for clicking:
- Dwelling. Once the cursor is stopped, it starts a countdown and the click is performed when the dwell time is over. A big cross gradually shrinks providing feedback to the user.
- Standard click using the left button.
- Ease click. To avoid undesired clicks as a result of tremors or other causes, it is possible to set a time the user must maintain pressed the button before accepting a click and another time interval after the click is performed in which new button presses are ignored.
A menu allows to the user to choose the desired gesture to perform. Such a gesture might involve one or two additional clicks, for instance, a double touch gesture require an additional click to confirm the position, and gestures such as drag or pinch require two additional clicks to confirm the start and end locations.
- Install the app.
- Tap to the launcher icon and follow the instructions.
TIP: to disable Ease Mouse touch the screen. To enable it again you could use the notification entry or the launcher icon.
