Pointer cursor software

Arten Science has released Pointer+, an application that enhances cursor functions. Users can assign hotkey operations or use a circular pointer overlay. The application be configured to show target cross-hairs when it is clicked, which could be used when demonstrating software. For photo viewing or editing, the area around the pointer can be magnified by using a hotkey, with control over the specific pixel size of the focused area. Users can also take a snapshot of the magnified area by activating a different hotkey.

The program runs in the background without a dock icon or standard menu, just a "P+" in the status menu, where the preferences and other information is accessible. It can be set as a Login item if needed, so it will automatically start every time the computer is turned on. Pointer+ for Mac OS X 10.5 is available from the company for 5 (~$8USD).
