a MUST have app for your Retina iMac!

Take your eyes off the screen and "here" will show you exactly where your mouse pointer is. No shaking your mouse and losing your position.

Creating a critical spreadsheet, retouching a complex photo, or reading a scientific paper? After you answer your phone, rub your eyes or step away, you'll waste precious time looking for your mouse cursor. With a desktop that's also saturated with files and folders, just turn away and you'll go looking for that cursor again. Work on multiple monitors late into the night? Now you'll know where, and on which monitor — even from across the room!

"here" is a brilliant new app that helps you pick up where you left off. Anytime your mouse is idle, a bright, shape highlights your cursor, marking its position. Inside your shape, a live counter displays how long your mouse, pen or touchpad has been inactive. Easily change your shape's color, size and transparency to fit your task or just because you want to. As soon as you resume work, your shape will fade or pop off. Pause or take break, and your shape comes back on, waiting patiently for you to continue.

If every second counts in what you do, always know where your cursor is. It's "here".

Version v1.82
Review by hungry tom

Wow! - It's like I've been driving a car for 25+ years and suddenly Detroit gave me headlights! Now I always know where the cursor is without doing the "loose wrist shuffle"—sort of like always finding your car in a giant parking lot or never losing a child in a shopping mall! You can even use the "idle time counter" to time how long a web page takes to load. Know anyone with Visual Disabilities? Instead of going to the Universal Access Preferences to access a big ugly cursor, "next" gives them an elegant and colorful way to keep their place while reading. Good to have when sharing your Mac with your grandparents! Wow, again.

Version v2.30
Review by gratidudee

Brilliant new strategy to solve this problem - New strategy (out of the way — until needed, then unobtrusive). Of course compatible with a “mouse-trails” app or a big-cursor app — so no need to limit oneself to one strategy. But this is an important part of my productivity.
