I love this app, and used it for years after trying others. But with my new Macbook Pro i7 (March 2010 model), it seems to dramatically reduce the battery life. Apparently it keeps the CPU active even though it uses only about .2% of CPU. Activity Monitor shows it constantly active. Uninstalling it gave me about an additional hour of battery life - the difference between 4 and 5 hours. I am still experimenting, but it looks like I'll have to uninstall it except when I'm at a power source.

I bought it a few months ago, in October, and really enjoyed it. But then Whenever I turned off my computer and turned it back on (or even restart it) I'd have to re-copy my permission code to my clipboard just so that the app recognizes that I bought it. Then after I have to jump thru hoops just to get it to work again. Right now I get no clicking sound, nothing. Very aggravating and frustrating. An absolute waste of money. Btw, I'm using it with Mavericks.

Just installed it on my iMac. Works ok with Mavericks 10.9.4. This is a happy program. Was making me smile hearing the clicks I adjusted the volume/pitch to. On a perhaps more functional note, I live in an apartment at the courtyard level and it can get pretty noisy here with stereos going, windows/doors open, etc. Distracting if not annoying for concentrating on writing. But the Keyclick sound reminds of many , typewriter, years ago working at a newspaper and how the click/clacking of my typewriter actually held my concentration amid the noise in the bullpen (phones ringing, phone conversations, people talking, etc.). With my word processor today the computer is stone silent and the surrounding noise is distracting. Keyclick to the rescue. Thank you, and yes, I can tell why it could be addicting. :)

I'm using a beta of Sounds4Fun v2.0 (22) for keyboard clicks. Works great in Mavericks. Downloaded from developer. Thanks ... Ken

I used to love this little utility, but I eventually stopped using it, because it would just suddenly stop working on a regular basis, then I'd have to go into the preference pane and turn the effects off then back on. Honestly, it's been so long since an update that I'd pretty much given up on Keyclick. I'm glad to see this new Snow Leopard compatible version. I think I'll give it a try and hope that my old issue doesn't pop up again.

This is one of my 5 most needed utilities. Used it for over 2 years. Once you get used to it you will never like a quiet keyboard. Try it! Stable and easy to use. Thanks ... Ken

Just downloaded the demo, quite sure I'm going to pay it when it expires. I'm kind of professional writer and I love hearing the sound of the typewriting machine when I'm writing. Just a couple of things: I can't see all of my apps in the exclude/include list (maybe it's because some app is "nested" into a folder, but it's annoying). Second: it would be great if I could set different sounds for different apps: i.e., a little click for normal apps, just for feedback, and the typewriter sounds for wordprocessing. Anyway, great app.

While it doesn't quite solve the problem of "mushy" keyboards, the audible feedback really does help one's typing. As the author suggests, set the volume at just barely audbile. Especially nice on my G4 iBook. Damned thing is rather addictive, actually -- I really notice its absence when I use my PC at the office.

is it just me, or does this seem like it could get really annoying while typing a term-paper or something?

The latest update (1.1.1) adds a nice feature, the 'Do Include vs Exclude'. If I understand it correct, that option will simply switch the behavior from Excluding the apps you have in the list, into just Include those applications and let any other process be unaffected by Keyclick's sounds, right? My problem is that the "include-only" function doesn't seem to work. I can still hear sounds in all processes when I'm in "include-only" mode. Also, are the Mouse Button click sounds "global", eg. not possible to set on a per-application basis? I would very much like to be able to set up Keyclick to, say, only be activated in TextMate and similar apps. Otherwise, I think the app is getting better and better, good job!

This is a simple but useful piece of software and has been enhanced notably since its first release. It uses very little memory and works flawlessly in background without slowing down the computer. I highly recommend it to users who want to keep track of key-strokes but don't intend to compromise their computer performance. Fariborz Amirshahi - Verona (Italy)

Or you could go to System Preferences: Universal Access and do the following: - Turn on slow access. - Check 'key clicks' - Set 'Acceptance Delay' to Short. and save your self an inconvenience fee.

Keyclick: $2.50; 0.30% CPU while in use. Typewriter Keyboard: €15 (about $18); 8.20% CPU when IDLE! 'nuff said.

I just bought this genius application! But I'm waiting with a review score until I've posted about a feature request that I have: - I'd like to see an option for using my own sound in Keyclick! Not that the built-in sound is bad (it's actually nice), but it would add to the fun and perfonalization effect, if I could make my own sound to it.
