MacBreakZ 4.8.5 ergonomic adds improved stylus and tablet support

September 30, 2008 in Software (E)

[] Luxembourg City, Luxembourg - has announced MacBreakZ 4.8.5. MacBreakZ is a sophisticated Personal Ergonomic Assistant designed to promote healthy and productive computer use. It uses a sophisticated activity monitor to minimize disruptions by ensuring that the user's activity level justifies a stretch, rest or micro-break. Version 4.8.5 adds improved support for stylus and tablet input devices.

Tablet input devices behave very differently from mouse or trackball devices, because they produce a constant stream of micro-cursor movements when the stylus is brought close to tablet. A mouse-based algorithm will interpret this as constant movement and thus over-estimate the amount of user activity. The new version contains specific tablet-related questions in the setup assistant that help produce an optimized setup.
