PinPoint Mouse Enhancer

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
#1 Mac Mouse Utility! Excellent Support since 2001 - PinPoint displays an animated graphic around your pointer. It can help locate the pointer on your screen or multiple screens. It is also a great way to enhance your pointer with fun animated graphics!
IMPORTANT - When PinPoint is launched, no icon is displayed in the Dock. You control it via the menu it adds in your menu bar.

More fixes for multi-screen crosshair behaviour
Essential for any scientist!
I adore PinPoint. I only use one functionality: the full-screen crosshairs. I have it set to toggle on and off with a single key-stroke. Any time I am looking at a plot (which I do ~100x a day), I have a really easy way to read off values for the data points.
I’ve been using PinPoint for about 8 years (long before there was an “App Store”) and, at this point, it is an essential piece of functionality that I require for my day-to-day work. I wouldn’t want to live without it. $5 may seem pricey for that one functionality, but it’s like the perfect pair of jeans: might seem expensive when you buy it, but you get more use out of it than all the rest of your App/wardrobe put together.
Surprisnigly excellent service
I’ve used PinPoint now for several years, and find it to be really useful when I work with large screens attached to my MacBook. I recently migrated machines and OS versions and had a problem with PiPoint (or so I thought - the problem turned out to be mine). I wrote an email to their service address asking for help. It was a Sunday morning, and I received a very helpful e-mailed response in less than an hour. That’s unusual in my experience, and highly commendable. I recommend this product.
Nice App - One Request
This is a nice app to enhance the use of the mouse and cursor. Would the developer please consider adding the ability to automatically move the cursor to the default button whenever a dialog box appears on the screen? This would save time moving the mouse to dismiss dialogs. This feature alone would increase sales as no one else has an app that does this. Many users, especially Windows switchers and long time users of the now defunct Lazy Mouse, would gladly pay for this functionality.
