Good idea. But 16 USD is to much. 5 USD would be more than enough. I am willing to pay for good ideas and proper work, but this is, as I said, to much. Lower the price and sell more copys. Much more.

This is an interesting program, although I don't yet know if I need it. For me, it provides a variation on the old "focus follows mouse" procedure, wherein one can hover the cursor over a background window and bring it to the front. That's not exactly what DwellClick does, but it can sort of work that way. (It will click the background window and bring it to the foreground.) I am definitely starting to find it handy in other ways as well.

To the developer: You are wise to offer a demo. It has me intrigued, and I'm certain that others who get to try it will find it worth pursuing. The only viable alternative I've seen is RapidClick, but there's no demo for that. Even though DwellClick is more expensive, I'll take the known over the unknown.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, it's useful for me. I'm definitely going more and more in favor of trials. I recently introduced a trial version of PopClip (which was previously MAS-only, no trial) and it was well received.

The main drawback of trials is that it can complicate things (mainly from my point of view, admittedly), with different versions of the binary, having to invent and implement trial limitations and so on.

But the "trial + MAS" setup can also confuse some buyers. You might be surprised how many people, having bought from the MAS, hear an update is out and go to my site to download it, instead of updating within the MAS. This has led to a number of emails from confused customers in my inbox.

The typical RapidClick buyer tends to be not as technically sophisticated as, say, the average PopClip and DwellClick buyer. So I feel the simplicity of a MAS-only approach is a good argument for keeping it that way for RapidClick. For now, anyway.

DwellClick really improves the user experience and has quite a few customizable features. The feedback via both sound and countdown animation of a colored circle highlight are well-implemented. The developer is very responsive and is actively adding to the feature set of DwellClick.

I think that it would be nice if you could save different quick access palette configurations and switch between them. Also, the inclusion/exclusion list in the preference would be more useful if you could save different sets of rules and switch between those sets.

It's a great piece of software, and I know that certain planned additional features will add to its value. I must admit that at $15, DwellClick 1.5 is not an impulse buy. I highly appreciate the fact that the trial shareware version was full-featured and good for an entire month.

I am a handicapped user who has difficulty manipulating the keyboard so, this is excellent potential for me and similar users.

One thing that would be very handy would be the ability to emulate a right-click or alt-click. Is there any way to add this?

Thanks

Thanks for your comments!

Right click is equivalent to ctrl-click, which can be selected by clicking the bottom button in the control panel.

To do an alt-click/option-click, go to "Panel" in the Preferences and add the option-click button to the panel.

I hope you find DwellClick useful. If there are any more questions or improvements you would like to see, just let me know!

Nick,
DwellClick Developer

Interesting app, but the scrollbar click feature doesn't play well with a Wacom tablet. Couldn't "unclick".

Haven't played with it further since it rendered my Mac unusable until I was able to disable it.

I'm sorry it gave you this trouble, and that you had to reboot. I'm very grateful for you for taking the time to report the problem.

I've just tested it with my own Wacom tablet, and I do find a similar problem when I hold the pen against the tablet. It seems the tablet sends tiny movement signals at all times, which is preventing DwellClick from registering that the pointer has been rested. In my case, it "un-pressed" when I took the pen well away from the tablet, but I guess your hardware may differ.

I will attempt to correct this problem in the next version of the software.

Sounds great, glad you were able to figure it out. Will give it another go once the fix is in place.

I tried unplugging the tablet, but that didn't fix it for me so I wasn't sure what was wrong.

Thanks!
