The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.3
PointerFocus is a cute little tool to help you make your cursor pointer more prominent using various visualization effects. Thus, you can make your pointer to magnify a selected area or produce a “spotlight effect”.
Besides, PointerFocus can be set to make any keystroke visible using an oversized font.

Simplicity is one of the main assets of this small application. Its main menu opens a tabbed window where you can configure your cursor’s appearance and the way the various effects available will behave. By default, as soon as you launch PointerFocus, a small circle will appear around your cursor, allowing you to identify more clearly its position on the screen. The size and level of transparency (or opacity) of this “halo” are fully configurable, as well as the colors it will display on pressing the right and left buttons.

Both the spotlight and the magnifier effects are probably the ones that make this tool so attractive to potential users. The former adds to your cursor a round magnifying glass that enlarges everything it points at, while the latter transforms your cursor into a round spotlight that makes anything inside it to stand out over the rest of the screen, which is conveniently shadowed.

PointerFocus is an extremely useful tool for teachers, presenters, trainers, and demo makers who need to focus their audience’s attention upon specific areas or elements appearing on the computer screen. Besides, PointerFocus’s functionality is surely of great help for those with a visual impairment, allowing them to enlarge and highlight those sections on the screen that they could not read otherwise.

Pros

  • Compact interface.
  • Clear visualization of cursor effects.
  • Supersized keystroke visualization.

Cons

  • None.
