Hawkeye Sidekick lets you control your Mac using head movements. Rotate your head to move the mouse and make facial expressions to click, drag, and scroll. Powered by your iPhone or iPad's TrueDepth camera.

NOTE: Hawkeye Sidekick requires an iPhone or iPad with a TrueDepth camera. This includes iPhone X, XS, XR, 11, 11 Pro, and the new iPad Pro.

Using your iPhone or iPad's TrueDepth camera, Hawkeye Sidekick lets you control your Mac hands-free using head movements. Intuitive controls let you perform common actions using facial expressions. Best of all, Hawkeye Sidekick works with every app on your Mac so you can browse the web, play games, edit videos, and much more. For people with motor impairments, this makes using a Mac far easier.

How it Works:

- Open the Hawkeye Access app on your Mac
- Open the Hawkeye Sidekick app on your iPhone or iPad
- The apps will instantly connect using Bluetooth, no setup required.
- Rotate your head to move the cursor
- Smile, pucker your lips, raise your eyebrows, or stick out your tongue to perform clicks, drags, and scrolls.


- Pick the expressions that work best for you
- Assign expressions to actions
- Adjust cursor and expression sensitivity
- Or, use your Mac's built-in Dwell Control

And much more...

- Shake your head to undo
- Open with "Hey Siri..."
- No external hardware needed

To get started, download Hawkeye Access on your Mac and Hawkeye Sidekick on your iPhone or iPad.

lot of potential, need to support multiple screens

Is very interesting, the setback is it still don’t recognize multiple Screens.

Wonderful idea but has flaws

I was so excited to use this because it is much better than apples version. Being a musician, I was really looking forward to being able do use this with logic pro and final cut pro projects. However, more often than not when I trigger to click and hold or click and drag, the function or control button get locked on as well making it impossible to move things. It took a very long time to figure out that this was happening. As a quadriplegic, this in conjunction with voice control would be a game changer. Please fix this.

Cool idea. Broken app. Dead development?

Love the idea but when I tried to use it it didn't work on my iPhone 12 Pro Max / 2019 MacBook (high end) running macOS Monterrey. I wonder if development is still going on? looking at the app page, website and Twitter, seems like they killed it? I hope not, this is an awesome tool I would pay for if it worked. But time will tell.
