for anyone wondering i can confirm that it also works under snow leopard (at least my system) very happy with it

and a request to the developer of this cute app maybe a function that the animation starts after clicking somewhere?

I keep losing my cursor on my 27 inch iMac screen! I looked around and only found Universal Access sizing, which gives you a pixellated cursor - not nice.

I found this app and it works fine in Snow Leopard 10.6.3.

There are some crazy effects and some which are quite sedate. You can also fudge around and make your own effect. The only problem is it is either all or nothing. It would be great if it would stop once the mouse was moved.

Not bad for free, but it looks like it isn't supported anymore.

Great app.

I did some changes to it and came out with this:

I love zelda games so this is great. I love navi following me around all over the screen,
the bad thing is that I can't use it in other space, just the first one, and if you use exposé it will also dissapear :(
still I love my navi :)

This program and the home page seem to be gone. Since it was freeware, would anyone be willing to e-mail me a copy at drtimothyjames@hotmail.com? Thanks in advance.

Re-thinking on the matter... more than a Pref pane, the real vocation of this cute software is to be a Menu bar application. Notice me as soon as it happens.

Beautiful...!!!!! Really beautiful...!!!

May be useless for someone, but for me is an amazing way to keep my cursor well located in an attractive and animated way that adorns my desktop.

I don't know how much CPU does it uses, but to prevent any overwork or eventual slowness I just minimized numbers and sizes, this way it don't distract your attention too much either.

GIOFX people: You should make a dedicated Preference Pane to incorporate it to the system itself.

Congratulations...!!!
And thanks a lot...

Love it, works fine on a 17" iMac Dual Core running OSX 10.4.10.

As the description says "useless" but great eye candy when the kids come over.

Great work
