A new, totally redesigned PowerMate Manager application makes it quick and easy to program PowerMate for both beginners and advanced users alike. Users can add custom commands to any Mac application with a simple twist or a click. PowerMate is also a convenient volume knob and is configured to work with iTunes and other audio applications right out of the box.
