    "Using both mice at once is problematic"

    October 18, 2008   |   By npeirce

    Version: Peanut Butter Pointer 1.11

    Pros

    Allows ambidextrous people to use two mice hooked up to one computer, so that when one hand gets tired, they can switch.

    Cons

    Trying to move both pointers at the same time makes both move very slowly and then they keep moving after you stop, like they have inertia or they're catching up with lag.

    Summary

    Clicking with one mouse pointer prevents clicking with the other mouse pointer, but so far I can't think of any situations in which I need to click in two places at once. Peanut Butter Pointer is good because it does what it says, but definitely needs improvement or an explanation that expected functionality (such as moving both mice smoothly and simultaneously) is impossible due to the operating system, if that's the case. If I can't find anything else that makes two mice possible with expected functionality, then I'll be happy to buy this in hopes that the creator will make improvements. Also, as said by others, options to change pointer colors would be good.

    "I recommend this for any program that requires collaboration"

    July 22, 2008   |   By Liz_Blake

    Version: Peanut Butter Pointer 1.11

    Pros

    I was amazed when I loaded the program on my laptop and the mouse and touch pad started using different pointers. It takes a few minutes to get used to the concept, but now I find it perfect for head-to-head games, working on school projects with my daughter and even training my mom on how to do something on the computer. Awesome idea!

    Cons

    I wish the pointers would have different colors. You sometimes need to move the mouse to see what pointer you are controlling.
