Nice little app and the beginning of a replacement for the higher priced Startrail. If you need something to help you see the cursor better due to vision problems this app along with Apple's own system enhancements can be a great help.

I should also add the reason it only gets 4 stars is that it needs more selections of cursor effects.

I was hesitant about having to pay for an app first before I had a chance to try it. But I thought, "What the heck. It's only $1.99". Well, it's a very interesting and unique app. Of course, it does not have much practical value but it's very entertaining.
