For those out there that think pressing a button to control media functions shouldn’t always be the only option, a new Mac app looks to add some variety.

Thanks to a gesture recognition technology company eyeSight, controlling some media functions just got a bit more interesting. The company has just released a brand new Mac app called “ControlAir,” and it will allow for the user to control some specific media functions, even third-party apps, with just a flick of a finger. With the app, users can control things like Spotify, Rdio, Netflix and others by raising their finger into the air, within eyesight of the camera. Raising the index finger will bring up the app’s control scheme.

Shifting the finger to the left or right will move the selection in that direction. Once a selection is made, shifting that same finger down like a click will activate whatever item was chosen. What’s more, even after an app is opened, ControlAir will continue to function.

ControlAir offers a simple way to control your music and video applications,” said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight. “Media apps are often running in the background and ControlAir keeps the control of those apps always accessible by simply raising a finger.

The Mac app is a free download, which is available down below. You can watch ControlAir in action in the video below as well.
