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.
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!!)
The only thing that annoys me
It is the best. I use it now all the time to show clients how to do certain things. Well built. My only issue and It seems to be an apple issue. For weeks I could not click the accept button that shows up when you try to download something. I contacted Apple today, and they advised me when I download something to turn off the cursor for this app, once it is off, I can use my regular mouse to accept. It is because Apple looks at the cursor as a third party and not apart of the original system. It won't allow you to download anything while the cursor is on. That is the only annoying thing, having to turn it on and off. Other than that, I love it.
