Ratings and Reviews
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!!)
Does not "Start at Login"
I love this app but it has one annoying flaw: it does not respect my "Start at Login" preference. After my computer turns on, it does not start the app and when I check my preference, the option is no longer enabled.
Developer Response ,
Dear lwdthe1_c—thanks for your feedback! This issue got fixed in one of the recent updates. We would be very happy if this is worth the fifth star to you! All the best, Martin
