Friday Freebies are a good way to end the week. But what if the week isn’t going so well and you struggled just to make it to Camel Day (also know as Hump Day, often referred to as Wednesday)?
For that you need a mid-week treat and what better way to do that than a Mac app that adds a little sparkle to your Mac life? And by sparkle, I mean, literally, some sparkle. As in sparkle on the Mac’s screen. For free.
Cursor vs. Pointer
What I have in mind for Hump Day pleasure is a cute Mac utility that is guaranteed to brighten your day. If not that, this little app can brighten your Mac’s screen. If not that, then there is nothing to be done and the guarantee is rescinded.
Enter iCursor, a free Mac utility that turns the Mac’s screen pointer into a magic wand. What follows a magic wand as it moves across the Mac’s screen? Well, a trail of stars, of course. Or, some fiery fireballs. Or, little pulsating hearts.
How can you not have a good day on your Mac when all those little sparkles follow the Mac’s mouse pointer across the screen? Even better, it’s not just a trail of stars that sparkle, or some fiery fireballs, or pulsating hearts, either.
iCursor also features different animations– from Circus to Snow, from Softballs to BigBalls, from Soap to SuperSoap, from Comet to Propeller and more. You choose how you want to be inspired for the day.
Even better, you can scratch your creative gene with controls that let you customize the effects. Not bad for free, right? Caveats? Two. The customization controls require plenty of trial and error. And, iCursor does not work on a Mac with multiple display. Well, actually, it works but only on the main display, not the added display.
