Boinx Software Announces Mouseposé for the Mac App Store

"We are thrilled to have Mouseposé available in the Mac App Store," comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. "Mouseposé is the perfect tool to grab your audiences' attention and keep them focused throughout your presentation. Our fifth app to hit the Mac App Store, we are thrilled with the reception we are receiving from customers and proud to be a part of this new purchase and download platform. We are working hard to make sure that all of our apps are available in the Mac App Store soon."

When activated, Mouseposé dims your screen and shines a spotlight on the area around your mouse pointer, helping to guide your audience's attention to an area of interest. Mouse clicks can easily be lost during presentations, so Mouseposé lets audiences visualize each mouse click by drawing a red circle around your mouse pointer each time you click. In addition, you can customize your clicks to coincide with a specific sound, and even give your right and left clicks different colors in order to easily tell them apart. When your mouse lingers over a window for an extended period of time, the focus automatically expands to highlight the window. Mouseposé also sports keystroke visualization tools, so that your audience sees each key you press for easier comprehension of product demos or training.

Mouseposé is available today at the Mac App Store for $16.99 US.

Boinx Software releases Mouseposé 3.1

“In presentations it's all about to grab and to focus the attention”, says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Mouseposé makes it easy for your audience to follow your actions on the screen. Of course, there are other uses as well. If you have a large screen, it helps you to quickly locate the mouse pointer when you return to your work after an interruption. And visually impaired people tell us that it helps them as well.”

Mouseposé provides many other subtle techniques to focus the attention on the important activities or content during a presentation. It gives audio feedback so that, for example, the audience not only sees the mouse clicks but also hears them. If the area of interest is in a particular part of the window, Mouseposé automatically expands the focus to include the window when the mouse is hovering over it for a certain time. This way, the audience is also aware of the larger context.

With the new version 3.1, users can now define a list of custom keystrokes that will not be displayed when using the keystroke display. When modifier and keys are pressed, only complete key combinations are shown. The update also improves stability and performance on startup on some computers.

Availability and pricing

Mouseposé 3.1 is now available for download from http://boinx.com/download. Built-in assistants guide the user through the process of obtaining a valid license key. The update from Mouseposé 2 is free of charge. New single user licenses are available for $16.95. The Family License, allowing the use on up to 5 computers in a private household, is available for $29.95. Upgrades from a single user license to a Family License are available for $13.

Mouseposé 3: Three Wishes Granted.

Hear the Mouse Clicks

Mouseposé does a good job at visualising mouse keys so that the audience can see what the speaker is doing. Mouseposé 3 now also makes a sound when a mouse button is pressed, so that the audience also hears what's going on. This leads to a much richer experience. In addition to that, Mouseposé 3 also has a nicer click animation and the user can choose a different color for the right mouse key.

Window highlighting

Mouseposé is very useful for narrowing down the focus of the audience on a very specific detail. But often the detail is in the context of a window, so Mouseposé 3 can now automatically expand the focus to include the window when the mouse is hovering over it for a certain time. This way, the audience is also aware of the larger context.

Family License

Many people wanted to purchase a license that would allow them to use Mouseposé on their desktop and notebook computers simultaneously. With the Family License, a user can install Mouseposé 3 on up to 5 computers in the private household.

Availability and Pricing

Mouseposé 3 is now available for download from http://boinx.com/download. Built-in assistants guide the user through the process of obtaining a valid license key. The update from Mouseposé 2 is free of charge. New single user licenses are available for USD 16.95. The Family License, allowing the use on up to 5 computers in a private household, is available for USD 29.95. Upgrades from a single user license to a Family License are available for USD 13.

Keystroke Visualisation

When the presenter presses a key on the keyboard, Boinx Mouseposé now shows the keys pressed in an elegant overlay.

Boinx Mouseposé 2: It speaks for itself

Let it speak for itself

Wouldn't it be great if a program could explain itself? Mouseposé 2 can! Listen and watch as Mouseposé 2 takes you on a tour of itself, highlighting the most important switches and settings and showing you what it can do. Based on AppleScript and Speech technologies, these 'Talkthrough' tours can be created by anyone for any application that supports AppleScript for demo or training purposes.

Visualisation of Mouse Clicks

One of the most important aspects of presenting is for an audience to be able to follow what the presenter is doing. Clicking the mouse is usually easily missed, so Mouseposé 2 now visualizes the mouse clicks by drawing a red circle (or two or three depending on the number of mouse clicks) around the mouse. Of course there is a hotkey for turning this off when it is not needed.

Excellence through Elegance

A good presentation tool should help keeping the flow going. The smooth start/stop animation in Mouseposé 2 is not only raising the audience's attention, it simply looks very good. And the adjustable smooth edge ads a certain touch.

Availablity and Pricing

Boinx Mouseposé 2 is available for download immediately as an Universal Application from the website boinx.com/mousepose License keys are available at US$ 9.95 via the built-in Kagi Store. Until a license key is installed, Mouseposé 2 works for 5 minutes for evaluation purposes at each programm start.

Boinx Mouseposé 1.2 - Give Your Mouse The Place It Deserves

Menu Bar Icon

Hot Key

With Version 1.2, users can now freely assign the Hot Key that activates and deactivates the Mousposé effect. This feature was especially requested by PowerBook users whose function keys were already reserved by the System.

Still Free and Available Now

"The number one complaint was that we did not charge for it", says Oliver Breidenbach. "But we think we'll have to live with that." Boinx Mouseposé can be used for free with a free license key which can be obtained from the Boinx website. Boinx Mouseposé 1.2 is available for download immediately from the website at boinx.com/mousepose.

Boinx Mouseposé - Does your Mouse seek attention?

Essential Tool

"Forget the laser pointer", says Oliver Breidenbach, head of Boinx Software, "Mouseposé automatically keeps track of your actions and focuses the attention of the audience wonderfully. Everyone doing tradeshow demos, trainings or presentations is going to love this." Early feedback from professionals in these areas suggests a high coolness factor for this tool.

But also individuals without an audience but with one of the latest high res, huge area displays may appreciate Mouseposé's usefulness in quickly locating the "tiny" mouse pointer on their enourmous screens for example when they return from a quick break.

How it works

With the Mouseposé application running in the background, hitting a user definable hot key turns on the Mouseposé effect, dimming the screen and putting the mouse pointer into a spotlight that makes it easy to locate. The desktop behind it remains functional, so that applications can be used while Mouseposé is turned on.

Free and available now

Boinx Mouseposé 1.0 is available for download immediately from the website http://www.boinx.com/mousepose. It requires a free license key for full functionality which can be requested at the same location and will be emailed immediately.
