Scrybe beta build gesture software released

Software company Synaptics on Monday released a beta version of Scrybe, or software that lets users perform gesture workflows for more efficient productivity. Part of the Synaptics Gesture Suite (SGS) 9.4, the program will let users perform more efficient gesture commands on their touchpads, including writing characters and selecting multiple items. The company's software will also allow users to personalize gesture commands for specific tasks.

As an example, users can look up a word in a document or webpage using nothing but the touchpad by selecting a word and tracing a question mark on the pad. The software can also be made suitable for quickly rotating, cropping and tagging images, or performing common but complex Windows functions.

Scrybe is meant for multi-touch pads but will also work with single-touch pads. The latest software has multiple new multi-touch gestures and an enhanced graphical user interface.
