Every now and again a Mac app developer fills a need with a new and unique app.
If necessity is the mother of invention, then someone needs an app that does something I didn’t even know anyone needed to do. For example, there’s a Mac app that will auto click your mouse button. My first question was and remains, “Why do you need to do that?”
Because Autoclicking A Mouse Is Efficient?
Has your productivity on the Mac reached a plateau because you can’t click your Mac’s mouse fast enough? Yeah, fast enough for what? See? I thought the same thing.
RapidClick is a simple automated clicker for your Mac’s mouse.
Click the Start button and RapidClick begins clicking the mouse pointer (wherever it’s pointed) over and over again. Click the Stop button and it stops clicking itself.
It clicks the mouse up to 10 clicks per second, which, frankly, is much faster than I can click my mouse the old fashioned manual way by just using my finger. Actually, I think I can get close to 10 clicks per second, but I can’t do it for more than a few minutes.
RapidClick is simple to set up and has a couple of handy options.
Options include Make Sound (so you hear the clicks), Flash Cursor (so you see the clicking), and Detect Motion.
There’s also an option to use a hot key combo to Start and Stop the clicking.
The simple controls meant I had only one other issue with RapidClick. Besides clicking your mouse automatically ad nauseam, I had to ask, “Why do you need a mouse that clicks automatically?”
As it turns out, necessity remains the mother of invention, and someone, particularly for techies and gamers, both of whom need and want lots of fast autoclicking.
And, yes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
See? Autoclicking. RapidClick is inexpensive, but the video will have to suffice to entice, because it’s available only on the Mac App Store, so no try-before-you-buy option.
