Follow Mouse

Follow Mouse 2.1

This app shows a colorful trail on the mouse cursor.

Follow Mouse is a Mac tool that comes in handy during presentations or when creating a video tutorial for an application you designed. The program shows a colored trail of your mouse cursor, a path which disappears from your screen gradually and without slowing down the performance of your Mac in the process.

This utility communicates well with Mac's default color palette app. Once you click over the Color panel from the interface Follow Mouse it redirects you to the aforementioned Mac tool. From there you can choose the preferred shade for your trail.

Follow Mouse also gives you access to settings like Update Frequency and Segment Count which can be altered if you need to change the way your mouse trail works.

Other than that, not much more can be said about this program. It does exactly what's being stated on the homepage of the developer without using many CPU resources.

Cutting a long story short, I'd say it's worth giving this Mac application a try if you need to display a colored trail of your mouse cursor on the screen. Plus, it's free of charge so you have nothing to lose by installing it on your computer.
