Have a question?
I've used my Swiftpoint GT for two years, nearly every day! My hand is always on it.
It has worked flawlessly. The ONLY thing that has worn out was the sticker on the bottom of the mouse, which I easily removed as it was pulling away from the housing.
I have NO wrist pain any longer! I HATE the Huge mice everyone else uses, as they put my wrist at an awefull angle. And I So Love the ease of charging, as I have the USB Charger adapter plugged right into the front or my PC. I just hang up my mouse on Friday before I go home... and come Monday it is ready for me again! Thank you for a Great Product!!
Swiftpoint GT has got to be the BEST crowdfunded product/ project I have backed to date.
24 months of daily use and it's like the first day, it holds the charge with extreme efficiency, while in case you forgot it, it can charge for one hour with only 60 seconds on its base! The best and the last mouse you'll ever need to buy! The ergonomics are beyond comparison, it is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Thanks for making a great product. It's so awesome.
Hello Kickstarter backers! We have just launched a new campaign here on Kickstarter. Whether you’re a Gamer, Designer or a Power Desktop User, this mouse will let you interact with your computer in a faster, more precise and highly intuitive way.
Head over to our new campaign and watch the video to learn more!
Yep. Still loving my tiny mouse. I get a lot of comments on it at work. People always want to try it.
After 14 months of continuous use, the Swiftpoint GT still ROCKS and remains the best mouse EVER!!!
This project should win an award for doing it right the first time
I have to agree with Silverdot and Jeffrey, I have been traveling with my Swiftpoint and it has not missed a click, Very happy :)
I agree with Silverdot. This is an incredible mouse. There's nothing bad to say about it. It's all perfect. Thank you.
After 8 months of continuous use with mac and pc, I am sure that the Swiftpoint GT is the best mouse ever invented, and I have tried many of them for the last 15 years.
@David Mayber: Hello David, your details have been forwarded to our support team (firstname.lastname@example.org). Someone will be in contact shortly to resolve your issue. Thanks.
HI, Could someone contact me? I don't think the kickstarter site works that well. I did not receive the survey until 5/22/2015, even though my shipping address hasn't changed, my email works fine and I get other kickstarter emails. I haven't heard anything, nor have I received my mouse. I know you guys make good products as I have two swift point mice (mouses?) already. Thanks
@Leonid dubov: Hello Leonid dubov, your message has been forwarded to the Swiftpoint Support team, they will be in contact shortly. Thanks.
Hi Grant. Could you check please the shipping for me? I haven't received anything.
Just for guys who's affected by mac osx syncing issues. the osx update 10.10.3 has resolved the bluetooth issue.
@C L Crane: Hello C L Crane, these orders have indeed shipped. Your message has been forwarded to the Swiftpoint Support team, they will be in contact shortly. Thanks.
I get the impression these have shipped. I have heard nothing since my last email on 12/8/14. (and received no product)
@James: Hello James, your message has been passed onto the Swiftpoint Support team, they will be in contact shortly.
Any more updates on the Fedex situation? I sent swiftpoint support the Fedex invoice (I've already paid the fee) back in mid January. Some kind of reply/update would be nice.
Works great, nice change from a traditional mouse.
@Colin Pickup: Hello Colin, the team at email@example.com will be in contact shortly. Thanks.
I just got a "1st Notice" from FedEx despite support telling me over a month ago that the issue should be resolved soon.
@Tal J Moskowitz: Using the Swiftpoint GT in Gesture mode can take a little getting used to. Try to use a very slight tilt, which you should be able to achieve with your fingers alone – no wrist rotation required. Thanks.
@Kevin Wallis: Hello Kevin can you please contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Any update on the FedEx situation? I have just received a hastener from them...
I get it now. Really quite simple now that you've explained it. When tilting it doesn't always "catch" - is there an adjustment to the way I'm handling it that I need to make so it scrolls every time? May just be a matter of getting the touch right.
@Tal J Moskowitz: The scroll wheel is actually provided "just in case" because it's been shown that scrolling with the touch gesture stylus is easier and faster. However, if you would like to use the scroll wheel, it's usually better to turn it with your index finger. We are working on videos that will show all of this really well, sorry for the delay. Thanks.
@Stephen Huen: we are not sure what may have caused this and will investigate and get back to you. Please note, it may have to be Monday before we find out the details from the carrier. Thanks.
Not use I 'get' this. Index finger rests on the nose instead of on the right click and the left click is a full finger flexion while the middle finger rests in the wheel well and has to toe in or "over-converge" to grip the tread of the wheel. Video demo on the website is not playing now w an invite to come back later.
Happy with the delivery and sturdiness, not sure I'm gaining an advantage from the finger positioning.
Hi Grant, I am from Canada and still have not received my mouse yet. Is that normal? I submitted my response on Dec 7, 2014. Please advise.
@Elles: Hello Elles, I have checked with our support team. They replied to your email on February 9th. They noticed you have two email addresses in use, so have now replied to both. Please get back to us via email (email@example.com) to get this issue resolved. Thanks
@GRANT ODGERS.... let me try this again. I can not connect my Swiftpoint mouse and my emails to Jim are not being answered.... Are you going to help?
@Chonnawat Eklapphaibun: we shipped your order on 12 December. Our support team will contact you directly shortly. Thanks.
I still have not receive mine. Where can I check the shipping status?
@edwin casey, @Kelvin Yip, thanks for raising this. Apple have introduced an issue with the 10.10.1 & 10.10.2 versions of Mac OS X Yosemite which can cause difficulties pairing with Bluetooth devices, including the Swiftpoint GT. We are expecting an update from Apple that will fix this issue.
In the meantime the Swiftpoint GT will still work perfectly using the USB receiver.
@Richard Harvey: thank you for your comment. We are preparing major changes to how we ship the product to Europe and other destinations. This will be completed in a week or so. We will then explain clearly on the website what the possible customs clearance costs might be. Thanks.
Has anyone from UK or Ireland had any joy trying to sort out the Fedex charges ?
Great product but unless you can sell them in UK directly then I cannot recommend to any of my friends that they buy from you whilst there is a hidden $40+ charge for import duty plus fedex admin charges. Your website currently lists a UK price ex VAT or tax of £89 + £14 delivery it doesnt make clear there will be another £25 or more of additional charges.
@edwin casey I too facing this issue after updating to 10.10.2 the mouse has fail to sync.
If anyone has a Kindle Fire, can you please contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org? We have a quick technical question and will appreciate a minute of your time. Thanks!
I want to thank you guys for the amazing product you made and your extraordinary customer support you provided me during the shipment of the product. I am extremely happy and I strongly encourage everyone to do business with your company. Congratulations!
pairing fail via bluetooth on my macbook pro, anyone know how to solve this problem?
@Michael Weissert: Hello Michael, Windows 7 does not support Native Touch and as such not all touch features are available. Horizontal scrolling is available in some Microsoft software, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
To get the full GT experience Windows 8 and our Gesture Technology Driver are required.
office 2010, btw
Using Windows 7. Works great on websites, but not so much with office. Cant get it to scroll sideways in excel, ppt, etc. Is there a setting I'm missing?
I used soft pads with my normal mouse in the past.
Can you recommend a hard/solid mouse pad?
I am staying in Singapore and have yet to receive the delivery. I input correct shipping address and paid for the international delivery charge.
Understand postage would take time. Would appreciate you can advise on the status. Thanks a lot.
@Silverdot: Hello Silverdot, I have followed this up with our support team who have emailed you with a solution. Thanks.
Any news regarding my parcel guys? From the last time I asked you told me to wait a few days and now 3 weeks have passed and I would like a quick resolution this time. I have proposed alternative solutions, even to send it with DHL at my own expense but I haven't received any response.
@Jason Davis: Hi Jason, yes, we've just got a batch of receivers from the factory. Please email email@example.com from the same email address you are using for your Kickstarter account (so we can recognize you as a backer). Thank you.
