Very useful app.; small, clean quick and efficient. Does exactly as claimed.

And recently had cause to thank the developer for extremely prompt and effective help.

Love it!

Great addition to the OS X toolbox. For me, this has more uses than I could even begin to explain.

Only problem is the cost. : )

Sometimes I like to read a book while keeping an eye on the stock market. With the browser displaying http://money.cnn.com/ or equivalent I can see the current S&P but the font is too small when the MacBook Pro is on the table next to me. I use Point N See in Fixed Mode to display that part of the screen magnified enough to see across the room and my mouse is free to answer messages when I want.

For most people, this software is slightly pointless. On all Mac's you can now hold hold Ctrl, and then scroll up and down to zoom in on the screen. Much faster than opening an app, and totally integrated to the system!

As has been noted elsewhere, the main problem with this is that Apple's zoom magnifies the entire screen. Sometimes you only want to magnify a portion of the screen.

Needs a global keyboard shortcut to activate/deactivate, as well as hide/show the main zoom window. Also an option to allow the zoom viewer to float above all other widows.

Otherwise, pretty handy.

My sincere gratitude to the developer for making this useful, and very much appreciated tool free. I have a real problem with the older Adobe app palettes which seem to be smaller than norm, and which, on a res-ed up screen are impossible to see. I have been using the Assistive devices display command to magnify the numbers till now which is very, very time-consuming, but this should help immensely.

If it can be further modified and used out of the dock or the menubar it will be perfect.

Thank you.

Apple pixie.app does this.
But you would have to instal the developer package.
So thanks.
