Modern computers with multiple high resolution displays present us with the "where is my mouse" problem. myPoint solves it using three different techniques - a momentary or permanent mouse locator, a crosshair and a permanent mouse halo.
• Momentary mouse locator is a visual effect active up to few seconds. It can be an animated or static ring.
• Permanent mouse locator is a static ring only.
• Crosshair displays two thin lines across the mouse position.
• Permanent mouse halo highlights the mouse cursor using an image shown around it. A free online halo gallery is available.
All tools are highly customizable: geometry, transparency, animation speed, hotkeys, mouse gesture, events.
Mouse Locator reveals the mouse cursor position with a gently animated or static ring.

Very cool and the right price!
This app works great, even better than I expected. I just wanted something simple for when I am in a classroom and I want to show my students something on the screen, and use the mouse pointer to guide them around. The only problem that I ran into is that I can’t make the halo module show a halo like the one shown in the app advert. Mine is thinner. I’d like a bolder one, just like the one shown. Oh well, it’s only a buck!
