Good but needs improvement

This is a good idea and works well in general. There are, however, aspects that need to be changed so that it is more useful. First, there is no much choice regarding the colors for the “halo” surrounding the pointer. You can only choose between the system defined desktop palette (that is only gray or blue in my Mac) or turquoise, which is not contrasting even. Also, there is no option to choose the size of the “halo” or its shape (magnification with a square halo would be great for text, for instance). Also, there is only one option to control the behavior of the halo. You can make it disappear when the pointer is not moving or leave it on all the time. There are uses for which I’d prefer to only appear with clicks. Others might prefer it to appear only with ctrl clicks, etc. It needs more flexibility regarding the options. Again, this is a nice initial idea but it’d be really useful with more options regarding its shape, color, and behavior.

Most polished and professional UI for this sort of App

Cursor Pro appears to be the most polished and provessional user interface and user experience of any of the cursor trail / highlighting apps on the App Store. The appearance options are limited, but beats competing app's effects such as bubbles and sparkles. I do wish it could have a trailing effect similar to Evernote's "Present" Note feature. I also desperately need this app to support keyboard shortcuts to activate and deactivate the Cursor Highlight.

Better, for me, than 6 other tools

I capture screen shots a lot, and by using the native Mac Shift-Cmd-4 shortcut for doing so. Many cursor highlighters are NOT COMPATIBLE with this! They interfere with the current window being highlighted for screen capture. (Noticed in High Sierra and now, too, in Mojave.)

Cursor Pro is COMPATIBLE. It doesn't mess up my ability to capture the current window.

Other Cursor locators that leave "trails" interfere with my ability to read "hover text" (for example on web page links) -- the trail blocks viewing the hover text! Cursor Pro does not do this, and anyway disappears completely after cursor is still.

I love, for training and video capture, the animation upon a mouse-click. (Doesn't work on a touch-pad with merely a touch, but does with pressing to click.)

I use multiple monitors -- and unfortunately this renders the magnification feature completely and utterly useless. But that is not a feature I was looking for, nor do I miss it. If I need to I can get that from other programs, or just press the native Opt-Cmd-8 shortcut to magnify the entire screen.

THANK YOU for the features you got right! (The important ones!!)
