[prMac.com] Derbyshire, UK - Arten Science is proud to announce Pointer+. Pointer+ is a simple, inexpensive, very focused application for your Mac that adds additional functionality at the press of a key. Functionality that is invaluable if you are using your computer to demonstrate software to a third party, or if using any sort of screen recording software.
* Hotkey Operation
* Circular Pointer Overlay
* Target Cross-Hairs when Click
* Magnify at Pointer
* Snapshot the Magnified Image
* Unlimited Use, Trial Version
When using your computer to demonstrate software to a third party, or when creating a screen-cast or screen recording, Pointer+ can help by making your mouse cursor more visible and giving visual feedback in the form of a target cross-hairs when the mouse is clicked.
In addition you can define (in pixels) the size of a magnification area that you can activate using a hotkey and drag around the screen. If you wish to capture that area of magnified screen as an image, this can easily be done by using another Hotkey.
Pointer+ has no dock icon or standard menu. When running Pointer+ it displays 'P+' in the status menu. From here you can view the About window and access the Preferences. Ideally Pointer+ would be setup to run as a Login Item so that it is launched automatically when you start your computer.
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard or higher
* Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
* G4 Processor, 1GHz or faster
* 10 MB Hard Drive space
