My assignment for last week Friday was simple. Friday Freebie App. Well, I forgot and wrote about something else entirely unrelated to free but entirely worthwhile. Over the weekend I looked around and determined there are fewer free Mac apps this year than last.
That’s OK. Everyone needs to make a buck and if formerly free apps were useful and valued, a price tag of a few bucks is money well spent. What I found is an app you’ve likely never used because it doesn’t have a real value proposition. Unless you’re really lonely.
Where’s The Mouse?
Some apps are useful, some apps are required, some are fun to use (games come to mind), but few Mac apps are, well, for lack of a better word– toys. EyeSpy is a toy app. A cartoon toy app for your Mac which does nothing more than look at the mouse or trackpad pointer on your screen. If you can’t find it– and big, retina displays with a gazillion pixels make it more difficult at times– EyeSpy can.
Here it is. EyeSpy spying.
That’s it. Well, almost.
EyeSpy comes with a variety of eyeballs which you can drop into your Mac and show on screen and there is where free says goodbye. Think in-app purchases on the Mac App Store.
The way EyeSpy works is simple enough. The cartoon eyes are always visible and float on top of Mac app windows. A few of the cartoon character eyes also float around the screen, and can even bounced off the cursor pointer.
And, we’re done. That’s a wrap.
EyeSpy is a toy for your Mac. Hey, you have toys for kids, grandkids, neighbor kids, dogs and cats, so why shouldn’t your Mac bask in the joy of having an onscreen toy?
