Aml Maple is a new point of view at keyboard layout indicators: simple, modern, flexible. It's easy to find - just look at the typing place or mouse cursor. It's easy to understand - current layout can be indicated with colored symbols and/or national flag icon. It's easy to use - indicator is compatible with absolutely most of the programs: both windowed and console. It's easy to setup - 9 interface languages, 30 language layouts are supported out-of-box.
Aml Maple is a helpful indicator for the currently used keyboard layout. The indication is configurable and might be done in two ways either by text cursor or mouse pointer or both of them. The indication in the text cursor is done by changing its color and indicating the language name to or below of the cursor. The cursor width is also configurable. The indication in the mouse pointer is done by showing either the language name or country flag next to the mouse pointer.

I've discovered this program not so long ago and it was a saver on my older work PC that still runs Windows XP. I use three languages for the input and I'm pressing alt+shift all the time around. Very often I start writing in wrong layout so I have to press alt+shift blindly until correct layout shown. Now I'm able to see the language under mouse pointer! feels / looks very comfortable. One more thing is you can mouse pointer color to corresponding colour. Awesome idea. If you like more fancy looks you can make it to show country Flag under cursor, but I don't need it for my office work. The program has easy to understand interface. has exclusion list if you don't want it in specific programs. Im on trial and it works flawless so far.
For those who will say "You have a standard Windows language icon in a taskbar!" - no, I have taskbar on auto-hide so I'd be forced to move a mouse down to make it appear and that's not ergonomic. I want it under my cursor as this nice program does :)
