Mouseposé is the indispensible mouse pointer highlighting tool (aka "virtual laserpointer") for everyone doing demos at tradeshows, presentations and trainings, or those individuals with huge and high resolution displays.
When activated, it dims the screen and shines a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audiences attention to an area of interest or helping you to quickly locate the mouse pointer.
"A great program that puts other similar ones to shame. It’s not only the functionality but the elegance and good looks that make it a winner. After all, a presentation is supposed to look good, and Mouseposé if anything, will make it look even better." – Victor Mihailescu, Apple News Editor, Softpedia
"More than just eye candy" – MacZealots.com
"Brilliant." Macworld UK
"When I do presentations nowadays, Mouseposé is on first." – Applelinks.com
Visualizing Presenter Action
The audience will be able to follow you much better throughout your presentation if people can clearly see what you are doing. In contrast to a simple laserpointer, not only does Mouseposé highlight the mouse pointer so that the audience can follow it around your screen, it also visualizes mouse clicks by drawing a red circle (or two or three depending on the number of mouse clicks) around the mouse, enables you too choose a sound to be played when the mouse is clicked and lets you pick different colors for right and left mouse clicks. When the Mouse stays over a window for more than a configurable time, the focus automatically expands to highlight the window and your presentation moves smoothly from detail to context. Mousposé also includes keystroke visualization to show the audience what keys you press during your presentation.
Find The Mouse Pointer
With multiple huge high resolution displays connected to your computer, "find the tiny mouse pointer" has become a popular game. Mouseposé is your cheat, with the elegant start/stop animation being designed to draw your eyes toward the mouse pointer, wherever it might be hiding.
• Some small bug fixes for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

Add this to Quicktime Player screen recorder - I wanted to buy a screen recorder for some video tutorials that I wanted to make. I was looking at professional screen recording software, but then I read online that Quicktime Player has a built-in screen recorder. If you use the Universal Access feature to turn on zoom, then you are have a fairly complete solution for screen recording except for one major omission: Quicktime Player does not visually highlight the mouse movements, clicks, and keyboard strokes; Enter Mouseposé. It does exactly that and very elegantly. If you add Mouseposé to the screen recording capability of Quicktime Player, then you will have a robust screen recorder and presentation software for next to nothing! The software works well and as the previous review said, it even works with Windows under Parallels. I highly recommend it to anyone that presents to others or records the screen for video tutorials.

Works on 10.10.3 - There was a hiccup in 10.2, but in 10.10.3 it works perfectly. This app is fundamental to my work as a Professor. If you need to teach a grop this is the best app out there.
Used to work great, now it just crashes. - I loved Mouseposé and used it when creating tutorial screencasts so users could see my mouseclicks. It was a slick little utility. Now with El Capitan, Mouseposé no longer works. Enabling the mouse click animation causes a grey screen of death on the first mouse click. I’m hoping the developer can address the issue, but I’m guessing this app is end-of-life since the last version was 15 months ago.
No longer works, but there is an alternative - Unfortunately the developer seems to have abandoned this app. But there is a decent alternative called Visualize. It doesn’t provide all the features and customization that Mousepose offered, but at least it works. And, *NO* I’m not affiliated with either company or the developers in any fashion.
10 dollars, crashed 10 times in the first 10 minutes - Ive heard great things about this app, from the interface it looks great, if only it actually works. Very poor quality for a 10 dollar app.
No start/stop animation? - I bought this software because of this claim in the description: "With multiple huge high resolution displays connected to your computer, "find the tiny mouse pointer" has become a popular game. Mouseposé is your cheat, with the elegant start/stop animation being designed to draw your eyes toward the mouse pointer, wherever it might be hiding.” The software does *nothing* when you start or stop moving the mouse. Only when you activate the app with a Hotkey.
