Moreover, it allows you to customize all kinds of cursors available in the system - Arrow, I-Beam, Alias, Copy, Move and the Wait cursor. You can animate any cursor and import pre-made ones available at our website. Edit the cursors with the simplicity of copy-paste and drag-and-drop, then hit Apply, and you got it!

With Mighty Mouse, you can:

  • Animate any of the system cursors (including the Arrow cursor);
  • Use cursors of any size - smaller or larger than the default ones;
  • Magnify your existing cursors for easier accessibility;
  • Download and import cursors made by other users;
  • Create your own cursors and share them with others;
  • Instantly import cursors created for Windows XP.

I bought two of their programs several years ago, Mighty Mouse and Menu Master. They weren't expensive - I believe each was either $10 or $15. I also used APE to enable a slick feature called "Clear Dock" which created an opaque or translucent background behind the dock so it didn't matter what your desktop picture looked like. The feature was free. OS X 10.5 came along and all of this went away. Then, after blaming Apple for everything except hunger in Africa, the got things working, but not Clear Dock. I recently bought an iMac 21.5" and once again everything went away, despite their claims that everything worked. I had also bought Font Card but frankly, I don't care if it works or not. The problem is that they totally ignore any and all emails sent to them with questions about their products. My emails were not hostile and contained no profanity. The last one I sent was about two months ago when I had my old system and something still didn't work. On their web site they claim that everything works under 10.6. If so, then why does the system give a message that it can't load anything because it hasn't been tested under Snow Leopard. I've been a Mac user for 19 years and I've never seen such lousy customer support. (I'm also sure they won't give a damn about this review, either). You don't get what you pay for from Unsanity, paying very little and getting nothing in return. I just checked the "stability" box below. My comment on that, is that under 10.5 my system would freeze, and I mean totally freeze - couldn't even relaunch the finder. A couple times I even got the infamous "black screen of death"> Did they respond? Of course not.

Was glad to see Mighty Mouse finally available for OS 10.5 after a long wait. Updates from Unsanity are a long time in coming. I used MM in Tiger when I had a Powerbook but then moved up to a MacBook Pro and Leopard. Now, any cursor that I select in Mighty Mouse 2.01b disappears from my desktop within a few hours, reverting back to my Mac's own cursor. I emailed Unsanity about it a couple of times but got no reply; oh well, another software developer whose customer support stinks. When I installed version 2.0.1b I got a notice asking for a $7 contribution to help them with software development. I foolishly gave it to them; I was delighted to have Mighty Mouse available again. Well, I now feel that these schmucks don't deserve any contributions in light of their foot-dragging regarding updates and their stinko customer support.

The Mighty Mouse is a mouse (hardware) sold by Apple Computer. Hence, the words, "Mighty Mouse," are already taken. The last 2 commercial software applications I wrote, I had to get written permission from Apple Computer attorneys just to use certain words within my application. Good luck. Oh yeah, by the way, has LabelsX been officially abandoned - "abandonware?"

This beta supposedly installs application enhancer is it is not yet installed on your system. It doesn't do that, which caused my system to hang after login. Luckily I have a firewire harddisk with a leopard install to boot from. To remove the problem causer remove the mighty mouse preference pane and the mighty mouse file in ~/Library/Application enhancers.

I think it's safe to say that Unsanity is no-more. Kiss such great products as Windowshade, FontCard and ShapeShifter Goodbye. Hopefully some other software developer will come in and run with Unsanity's product ideas. Only this time hopefully, it will be a company that appreciates its customers in a way that Unsanity did not. If anyone could list some alternatives to WindowShade and Fontcard, MightyMouse I think all former Unsanity users would appreciate it. R.I.P. Unsanity.

Unfortunately, Unsanity is toast. Stick a fork in them they are done. Let's see, it's been close to 5 months with no updates for any of their software. Not a one. What a joke. Way to show respect for your customers. If they cared, or were working on new releases, they'd be keeping us up-to-date on their blog page... which of course, they are not doing. So, my only conclusion is that they have thrown in the towel. Sorry folks, it's time to face reality.

Thank you thank you thank you! You also much improved on the cursor position bug, nice work! (I'm sure you can only do so much since the rest may be up to apple) I can't wait till ResEx is up again, then I will submit my custom cursor set I created.

I know you can use cursors from CursorXP with MightyMouse, but how can you use ALL the cursors from a CursorXP set? I can only seem to get the first three cursors to work.

Ok.... The frikkin program still doesn't take the registration! Or, it does, but it won't last very long. When I go into the preference pane it says it's registered, but still after a while it complains and turns of my customized cursors. What to do?

Great piece of software pity about the registration issue. I have been using the 1.21b (beta version on Unsanity site) to get around the problem. It appears to work OK.

Won't hold registration. I have to constantly go back in and reselect the cursors. I've paid the ten bucks and it doesn't work. Fix it.

Still can not get it to hold the registration. I went through and hand deleted every byte of Unsanity on both my main drive and my backup. Ran disk utility, repaired permissions, restarted between every move (shades of System 7.2!!!!) The reinstalled the lot ( I use all of their hax) but no use after about 10 mins I get flashed by the appa again even though it shows on the pref pane that it is registered to me.

Registration still doesn't function correctly. Why doesn't the developer use the tried and true routines from other Haxies to acomplish the registration w/o frustration?! Why keep reinventing the wheel? P.S. It would be nice if the GUI provided visual reference to the library of cursors dl'd locally, instead of having to load each set separately.

I am also seeing the same behavior, or rather lack thereof. No changes occur when I click Apply. I am left with the original cursors. Running 10.4 and Mighty Mouse 1.2.

Good batch of bug fixes in 1.1.3. I'm not a wierdo who changes cursors every day, but it's really nice to have my large, flashing customized cursors -- they don't get lost on big dual-screens at 1600x1200. This is one great utility: five woofs.

I find this to be a tremendous asset to Mac OS X. I use Mighty Mouse in conjunction with MacChampion's PinPoint to work at the high resolution possible with the Mac. The higher resolutions, unfortunately, make for small cursors. Having a degenerative eye condition is made more tolerable by the bigger cursors. Unfortunately it does not work for application-specific cursors. So some of my work is still done with tiny cursors.

I-beam cursor doesn't work for the terminal, whats up with that? As well it needs customization for app-specific cursors, such as the hand cursor in Safari. Also the cursor is suppose to dissapear when you type this doesn't happen if you are using anything but the standard apple I-beam.

I tire of reports from people who trash Unsanity. NO, I do not work for them, but I happen to "know" the developer. I have used every Unsanity haxie and never, let me stress this, NEVER had any issues that were related to the Unsanity haxies. I suggest, strongly, that if you are having any issues with any of their softs that your Mac is NOT a happy Mac. To paraphrase Shakespeare, "the fault lies not with the stars but with ourselves". Mighty Mouse is a fine haxie.

I'm so stunned by this utility (I refuse to use their twee "haxie") that I can't even type! The cursor magnification feature alone is worth the shareware fee of $10 -- the unbelievable cursor loading and edit features are worth twice that! Unsanity have done the impossible, again, and made it look easy and beautiful. If I wore a hat, I'd take it off to them. As it is, I shall merely eat a sandwich in their honor -- after delightedly paying my shareware fee, that is!
