I think it is sneaky the way they push the purchase to the App Store where you are forced to buy without trying. Then you have to fight with Apple to get your money back. I would not bother with this app simply because of the way the developer is trying to hide behind the app store.

My thoughts.

A valiant effort, but nevertheless ridiculous.

Also I think a review of the name is in order, sounds like a digitally enhanced STD

Could be iCrabs instead of iClap, but please, God, save me from either one either one.

While this might be a novel and interesting way to control your Mac, I feel the way the developer has positioned his product as App Store only which limits redress in case of a problem is sneaky. Many people want to try before they buy and now this option does not appear to be there. Buy it and if you don't like it, then go through the dance to get your money back. Until the developer fixes the way to try this app due to the number of negative reviews, I would avoid this app.

Note to anyone not able to get iClap to detect claps: you need to clap twice and you need to have a second or two of silence between claps, do not clap too fast. iClap will also not work in a noisy environment. The clap detection engine is a work in progress and will be improved in future releases.
