Magic Trail is a fun app that allows you to add special trailing effects to your mouse & trackpad pointer. It is the best app of its kind and even works with multiple monitors. Use it to impress your friends and brighten up your day with fun and interesting mouse effects!

The app lives in your top menubar and from there you can easily access further options to customize the mouse trail.

The app has 8 cool mouse trails:

1. Fire
2. Rainbow
3. Stars
4. Bubbles
5. Snow
6. Mouse
7. Confetti
8. Heart

The length of each of these trails can be customised via the preferences.

We've worked hard to make Magic Trail fun and pleasurable to use. We would love to hear your thoughts via email and make any improvements to future versions of this app. We intend to have an active development cycle powered by your feedback and support!!

Very good, could use a tweak here and there.


This is a very good and useful app. It takes a while to get used to at first, but the trail is adjustable. If I were going to recommend improvements it woud be a capability to adjust controls or turn off the app on the fly. And more choices, more tailorability. The trails look like they were made by a teenage girl for a pre-tween girl. It would be great to have simpler options for senior citizens like me who really need this app.

So simple, yet so needed.


You’d think that something like this would be built into the system. Glad that Magic Trail is around, makes life on the Mac way easier. Great job, great app. Thanks,

Cool little app


The one thing that needs a little attention is a little more detail on how to change the pointer trail. I fiddled with is a while until I saw the pointer icon on the top bar.
