Hawkeye Access 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's TrueDepth camera.
NOTE: Hawkeye Access 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.

And much more...

Ratings and Reviews
It works pretty well, but you might need to play with the settings and change the gestures. In my case, I kept dragging when I didn't want to. Also, there should be a way to make a gesture trigger Siri or Dictation, so someone wouldn't have to use the head tracking to type.
I've used it on the phone and it works okay. Tried this but it's just stuck at "download for iPhone" and I've already done that - even manually conntected to bluetooth since the description mentioned it works over bluetooth. I also don't see it working too well unless I have the hardware shown in the example above. The phone is pretty far from where I'm looking at the iMac screen.
Doesn't seem to work with multiple monitors
Unfortunately, this otherwise promising software is currently unusable to me due to this.
