"To do trainings and small presentations and this will work great as an add on"
"After about 5mins I was very comfortable working the menus and transferring between 2 monitors. To do trainings and small presentations and this will work great as an add on. THANK YOU"

"It has more versatile in the live presentation"
"Super gadget. It has many of the same utilities as built into PowerPoint but the functionality is different and much more versatile in the live presentation.

The program resides as a live toolbox, during the presentation, in a side-slider. To access the menu, mousing over the screen edge will bring the menu into focus to allow the many options described.

One personal favorite tool is the countdown clock. It is easy to set and makes a polite point of staying on track."

"For teachers and for business persons who may have to make presentations, this software should be handy."
"It converts the computer screen into a manipulatable white/black broad and do a lot that one can do with electronic pointer, torch, chalk,whiteboard markers etc. For teachers and for business persons who may have to make presentations, this software should be handy. It will draw the listener’s attention. I liked it."

"I can simply open Visual Studio, and present the code directly while using these utilities"
"A very useful and beautiful utility. Especially for we developers, that we do not need to prepare for separate presentations like in PowerPoint to present our code. Now I can simply open Visual Studio, and present the code directly while using these utilities.

My overall view is that, it is a very unique kind of software."

"PA has more options for Drawing, Image, Arrows etc."
"Presentation Assistant has lot more options and utilities than Microsoft Systinternals ZoomIt, except that ZoomIt is free but very limited. PA has more options for Drawing, Image, Arrows etc.
I didn’t find any support in ZoomIt for Dual Monitors and not even if I can switch between monitors."
Comment by Farrukh

"I can use this for all my presentations."
"Thanks GoldGingko. I can use this for all my presentations."
Comment by PCexpert

"This program is really cool."
"This program is really cool. I like how you just have to click it once in the task bar or hold your mouse over the corner that you designate for it to sit and it reappears when you are moving between different parts of the program. It hasn’t slowed down my system which is good as so many programs do. Thanks Goldgingko."

"PA is very good in my few tests so far."
"The big thing to remember, with this very good software, is that it takes practice to use it during a presentation, and make its use fluid. PA is very good in my few tests so far.

A freeware alternative is picpick at http://picpick.wiziple.net/ which has many but not all of the features of Presentation Assistant."
Comment by cornflowe

"Much better than any of the alternative software suggested by others"
"This is a very cool program. Installs and works well on XP SP3. Much better than any of the alternative software suggested by others– not that they aren’t good suggestions ;). I was reluctant to try this and explored the suggested alternatives, only to find myself back to try this one(Presentation Assistant). And I am glad I did. Thank you Goldgingko.com!"
Comment by DJ

"This is a neat program."
"This is a neat program, even if you are not doing a presentation. Write a note on the screen, set the timer as a reminder, use the sidebar for launching applications, magnify, and more. Interesting set of features; all of the ones I tried out worked well & quickly. Windows XP."
Comment by MichaelC

This is an interesting presentation utility. Unlike Microsoft Sysinternals ZoomIt, it can draw on a “live” screen. It has many features and options.  It might be useful for video screen recording apps.
Comment by Fubar 

 It should be helpful for the training videos I produce.
Comment by Moore

Nice little program for presentations.
Comment by  J.T.

In my job I do lots of software training simulations / demonstrations, delivered via web-based training, using Adobe Captivate. I frequently have to add effects in Captivate to draw attention to a screen area. I did a test run training sim with Presentation Pointer and it works just fine – toggle On to draw attention where I need it then toggle Off to continue. Everything is captured. This will reduce development time and enhance the finished product. The Publisher has some other tools that may be useful to me and I intend to purchase after using the Trial. 
Comment by Tom 

I hold presentations quite often, and in this connection I have used the small and portble program Zoomit from Windows Sysinternals (bought by Microsoft. This is very good. But after using Presentation Pointer for halv an hour, I would say that this is even better – an extremely useful help during presentations. The visual presentation of mouse clicks is very instructive!
Comment by Dlira 

I believe it’s a great alternative to Mousepose for MAC. A must have tool for those involved in demos at tradeshows, presentations and trainings….great app for Internet Marketers, teachers and IT Trainers
Comment by Giovanni

Presentation Pointer is a nice, small alternative to the free ZoomIt [Sysinternals at microsoft.com], with a slightly different feature set — Presentation Pointer doesn’t zoom in, but it adds a nice spotlight view & mouse click animation [both switchable]. Another area where they differ is text display — ZoomIt lets you type notes etc. that’ll show up in screen shots you might take while zoomed in; Presentation Pointer shows what keys you pressed in a darkened area at the bottom of the screen. While both apps support hot keys, Presentation Pointer relies more on it’s option menu, & it’s also a little bigger than ZoomIt with it’s single file. Despite it’s larger size, Presentation Pointer also uses a bit less resources than ZoomIt, per Process Explorer in a XPMode VM [since that VM has (much) fewer resources, resource use shows up better, is easier to track & compare], that is until you turn on the Spotlight Effect, which raised CPU % from <2 to spikes approaching 80%… thankfully you can set a time limit so things go back to normal in a couple or few seconds — otherwise I'd guess that combined with whatever else a lower powered laptop was doing, you might get enough lag trying to switch it off that it could get embarrassing.

I think Presentation Pointer is a worthwhile addition to most everyone's toolbox, if for no other purpose than when you want to point something out on-screen — fingers can be too fat, leave fingerprints [I hate cleaning non-glare LCDs], & well, Sharpies really are permanent. Laser pointers are cheaper [$1] but annoying, & they’re not persistent — you can draw however many lines [w/w/out arrows] with Presentation Pointer [or ZoomIt], & they’ll stay there until you clear them, so you can do far more than show someone what you’re looking at right then, right there.

This program gives you control of the size, color and actions of the mouse pointer, the radius of the spotlight, the opacity of the background, whether the effects remain or fade out and for how long, the colors, you can live draw, and you can set which monitor you want the effects to be on, in a multi-monitor setup. You can even change the radius of the spotlight on the fly with a hotkey. If you do any presentations at all, this would be a very handy tool to have. I also tried Pen Attention, and of the two, Presentation Pointer has the better features for a truly professional presentation.

It will be very useful in this shared screen function of Skype to bring attention to various parts of the screen, I shall certainly be keeping it.

I like this software just as much for its unique features.
