Four finger swipe left/right -> Task switcher shows up (a horizontal bar with app symbols).

Two finger swipe -> highlights an icon and shows app name.

?? -> switches to highlighted app. Since the highlighting is independent of the mouse cursor, a click doesn't work here without moving the mouse cursor. But I don't want this (locate mouse cursor, move the extra mile..).

Maybe Better Touch Tool allows to configure a click to act as SPACE or RETURN in the task switcher? But how did Apple intend to use this?

I think you meant four finger swipe left/right – cregox Mar 24 '10 at 14:01

It's four finger tap.

I don't think Better TouchTool have any option for changing this, tho.
