iCursor overview

iCursor is a funny and useless app for Mac OS X, it attaches to your cursor pointer a lot of particles. There are many customizable effects and you can also create and share new effects with other users.

A little spell to transform your cursor into a magic wand followed by a trail of stars or fiery fireballs or littlee pulsating hearts. And if you are in a lighter mood, you can choose soap bubbles,small and large, colored or vanishing, and follow them until they pop. And while you are remembering, you can fill your screen with a thousand colored confetti and see them fly away with the wind or slowly fall to the ground. And after color, there is black and white: have fun spraying ink spots here and there and then let the snow fall...

To transform the screen of your mac in a fantasy space, to free your ideas and let yourself drift...toward the next inspiration!

Note: iCursor is a "tray" app: if you want to close and/or delete the app locate the iCursor icon (a little arrow in the Menu Bar near the Clock), click on it and select QUIT, then eventually delete the App.

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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYvXhWZAsS0 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

This is a fun application. Most of the built in effects are cool. A couple of suggestions. One, implement this as a Preference Pane instead of a stand alone application. I would prefer this for a couple of reasons reasons. The first reason is because it's icon wouldn't need to be in the dock. Second, it would continue to work all the time because it couldn't be hidden. Third, it could also be set to start at login with out adding it to the startup applications. Two, move the Effects folder out of the /Applications folder and in to /Library/Application Support/ Three, allow for exporting and importing of effects. Maybe the developer could host user-submitted effect at his website.

Fun little app. If you ever do more tweaking of the app how about getting it to show up in the menu bar instead of the dock? Anonymous is a loser, lighten up dude.

Nice app - you can't beat free! Interestingly, if you have multiple desktops (i.e. VirtualDesktops), it only works in the desktop it was launched into. Maybe this is a bug? I actually think of it as a feature, because there will be times you won't want it on, and other times you do; so simply change into the other desktop!

Great app, fun to use easy to customize. Wow the last poster sure seems angry. I barely see a performance hit, but then again I have a Dual 2.0Ghz G5, 5 gigs of RAM, and a 68800GT. If you need your CPU cycles, turn it off ya numbskull. Uses about 2.5% of your CPU, which is not bad at all. I have all of the other Pointer Software/Locaters and this one is pretty cool looking. If you don't like the the defaults, you can always make your own images, they are just Targa files. To Gio-Thank You. If you feel like adding a feature, how about having the option to have the particles start after a period of inactivy. Also why not add a core image effect for mouse clicks, like the ripple effect, that would be nice.

Don't use this app. The developer is a knumbscull for producing what is essentially a particle-effects plugin. This thing is slow and totlally useless. The defaults for each cursor-effect points to it's stupidity. All defaults began with 600 particles and are supposed to run at 30 frames per second... So now a generated quicktime is going to follow your mouse!? With one, called "stars" (or something - you're cursor emits stars that get bigger and fly accross your entire screen.... WTF!? This high-on-mac developer, forgot that their target audience has got work to do and doesn't want trinkets that get in the way.
