OneClick

1.6.2
04 June 2006

AppleScript checks email and reports with 1-click.

Overview

OneClick checks your email for you and reports back the results - all with one click of the mouse.

If you're on a dial-up connection, OneClick uses your selected settings to connect to the Internet then disconnect when finished. If your dial-up connection is dropped OneClick automatically re-dials, as many times as it takes (up to 10 tries - although this can be changed), to establish a connection! Aswell, the Mac OS X Mail application only provides the barest of feedback (as single audio cue). OneClick works with Mail to provide a useful dialogue box for feedback. The ability to dial & disconnect from the Internet while checking your email via Mac OS X Mail is unique OneClick.

What's new in OneClick

Version 1.6.2:
  • Now works with AirPort! Since much of the connection process is managed by the Base Station, OneClick must relinquish some control when using AirPort. For this reason, the Internet Connect window remains open - so you can easily select disconnect should there be a dailing problem. OneClick auto senses what type of connection, wired or wireless, you are using.

"A" for effort, but it's impractical. If this was a stand-alone email checker that would be one thing, but the fact that it has to launch Mail.app defeats the purpose of being a small email checker app.

Please rename the thing! Although OneClick isn't around for a couple of years now, it's a bad idea to name a simple AppleScript this way. A lot of people are still searching for a rebirth of the true OneClick

I am now seriously considering this, as my AppleScript has developed to more than a simple email check function. Still, OneClick from Classic is very dead (over five years now) is likly to stay that way.

Re: Schmelding's comment. OneClick does not claim to be a replacement for an email client. In itself it is not trying to check email - it works *with* Mail - I think most users would prefer that. However, Mac OS X & Mail have some gaps and OneClick fills a few of them - and quite well I believe. For dial-up users OneClick is especially useful. No more mousing to go on & off-line. One click and walk away. I'd call that very practical.

Development of the old OneClick INIT (for Classic) is dead. The developer's website has gone, and they have no point of contact. The only website that referenced it in detail that I could find has not itself been updated in over five years - and no email contact there either. Consequently, since my OneClick has a completely different use, is for OS X only, and unlike the old one - is being supported, I'll hold on to the name for now.

I agree with the other person about changing the name, but for different reasons - mainly your own "piece of mind" Apple uses the term "One Click" in references to on-line store purchases from their website and ITunes purchases. They may have copyrighted the term. Given Apple's current predilection for lawsuits, changing the name may be in your own best interest should it be copyrighted. At the minimum I would suggest some research to determine if it is now a copyrighted term by Apple. Frankly I have no idea if it is-or not, but at least I do know that using the term for multiple technologies, both related to Macintosh, could be confusing for naive users. Just something to think about. As some suggestions that I have not investigated , how about FinderMail, MailBox, PostOffice, PostMan, GoPostal, Postal, MailMan, UniClick, or YouHaveMail.

I've attempted to contact the developer of the old OneClick without success. The only website I can find with any firm link to the old OneClick hasn't been updated in over five years. I got an email bounce back from there too. Given that the old OneClick was for Classic only, and has a very different function to this, has been out of development for years and I can't contact the developer, I'll go with using OneClick for now.

Aw 'cmon now - it does what it says. In one click you can achieve what takes four clicks otherwise (on dial-up) plus waiting around time to manually disconnect! And it tells you wat Mail just did. As well it can be actioned by iCal and made a Speakable Item. None of these are possible with Mail alone. Practical in every sense.
