Version 3.7.10
Review by DataScienceGirl

Essential for any scientist! - I adore PinPoint. I only use one functionality: the full-screen crosshairs. I have it set to toggle on and off with a single key-stroke. Any time I am looking at a plot (which I do ~100x a day), I have a really easy way to read off values for the data points. I’ve been using PinPoint for about 8 years (long before there was an “App Store”) and, at this point, it is an essential piece of functionality that I require for my day-to-day work. I wouldn’t want to live without it. $5 may seem pricey for that one functionality, but it’s like the perfect pair of jeans: might seem expensive when you buy it, but you get more use out of it than all the rest of your App/wardrobe put together.

Version 3.7.12
Review by Michael177

Sometimes PinPoint just vanishes - 3.7.12 — Sometimes (often) the PinPoint effect just disappears and stops working. Can’t tell when or why. And then, without any apparent change, it will start working again. Weird.

Works half the time, feel like it's a waiste - Seems like a great tool, but doesn't work half the time. Doesn't highlight what I'm clicking so basically fails at what it's for. Uninstalling.

Catalina Strikes Again - I won't blame the problems on the developer, for this thing worked beautifully before Catastrophina...I mean, Catalina. At the time being, though, this app is annoying. Hopefully, a newer version will appear some day.

Version 3.7.17
Review by Mackidockie

Useful but Buggy - A valuable tool for those with less than perfect eyesight. Worked excellently until the latest versions. PinPoint has a disquieting habit of disappearing and quitting. I've had this app for a long time and love it. I look forward to future fixes. Soon, please.
