Good idea and extremely reasonable price. However in System 10.9, the app seems to turn itself off at random time and seem to have some other problems. It is time for a new version!!

Great stuff, but since it is only 32bit in a system setting, it has to be restarted on every system boot. Not cool.

Changing the trigger delay does not reflect immediately. I guess this is a little bug but as a workaround I just check/uncheck "Always On". Unfortunately, the "Show Button Clicks" does not work for trackpad taps. Anyway, it is good app.

This is what I was looking for (as well as my curser) and so far it works great in Lion 10.7.4. released in 2006 and still works in 2012. It would be great if the developer decided to upgrade it with new features for customizing the curser. A trail that faded would be cool too, for locating my curser across 69 inches of monitors (42" and 27")

This is simple, there when you want it and not when you don't, and works like a charm.

Tested on MacBook, OS 10.6.8, external LCD.

Thank you for this excellent program, very long time to use it especially convenient package
before you are two 27 inch monitors! But with the update on the work computers with OS-1964
bit, the program can not install!
Please make 64-bit support in the Mouse Locator!

Thank you! I admit that even she will have to pay in the AppStore! :)

Nice little app. Unfortunately, the developer has not responded to multiple requests for assistance to resolve a problem with it. The app quit working. Uninstalling (with the app's uninstaller) and reinstalling has not resolved the matter.

Any recommendations for an app that is more reliable and is supported by the developer?

Pinpoint, especially the new versions on the Mac App Store is very flexible and fun. It is not free, but it certainly is cheap ($3) or so. I think it can even use the same graphics. Developer is really responsive too. Not perfect, but real nice.

I use dual 30-inch monitors, and this app is a godsend! I love that it is possible to customize the overlay image. I didn't like the the colour and the fuzzy edges of the stock green one, so I made myself a new one in five minutes. Follow the link in the DMG for downloadable icons as well as instructions on making your own.

@Thoth: Mouse Locator does what you want. Slide the Display Time slider all the way to the right to infinity. Now the overlay image will stay on the screen forever (beyond the maximum 9 seconds), and will disappear when you press a mouse key.

Very helpful little application. The trouble which I am having, is that it will not permit my iMac to sleep; no trouble with my MacBook Air & MacBook Pro - only the iMac (the only computer I really need it on, alas!).
