Needs multiple monitor support

Add another vote for multiple monitor support. That is why I wanted it - with multiple monitors, it is easy to lose track of where the cursor is, and this is the best answer to that problem I have seen. Please make it work on all attached monitors. It would also be nice to have an option to have the cursor look just like the icon for this app.

I like this app. I bought it for the stars and Im glad I did. All the other effects are sort of lame. The smoke for example looks like a crazy cloud burst or something….Real smoke is more lazy in its motion…Otherwise, good app, I like it. Thanks. :D

Glad to have it again!

I had Startrail many years ago but then there was a gap in an OS upgrade where it wouldn't work. I love this effect. It cheers me up and makes it so easy to find the cursor on my large monitor.
