Some comments from DwellClick's users:
"I have no doubt that had an app like this existed 15 years ago, I wouldn't have RSI in my right arm now."
"I have limited use of my arms and hands. This tool is extremely helpful."
"Having already had my right wrist 'released' (carpal tunnel syndrome), I try to be careful about the stress and strain of repetitive motions. My situation is made worse by my inflammatory arthritis. DwellClick to the rescue!"
"DwellClick continues to be the reliable cornerstone of my hands-free computing access. Despite my quadriplegia I've been offered a job as a SysAdmin!"

Amazing and way better than expected! - At first, I had no idea what DwellClick was and what it could do. It seemed really strange and the price also seemed exorbitant for an app that only does clicking. But once I tried (which the gracious developer let's you try for a month with no feature limitations or restrictions at his website) I was stunned by how well it performed and how thoughtfully it was designed. I would say it is one of the most elegant apps I've ever used. Please don't be fooled by its simplicity (not something trivially achieved). Give this app a chance--a free trial download is available at the developer's websit--and you will consider it money well spent. With this app you can say goodbye to clicking and hurting your finger bones while depressing the mac trackpad.
Dwell - It is terrible, bad quality and layout. Freezes, no option on exact time to set for clicks. Intervals dont work properly. They idea was great, but lack of effort. It is a scam of $10.

For RSI injury it's a must! - I've used this app for years due to severe repetitive strain injuries. It takes about 10 mins. to get used to. Want your mouse to click for you, just pause it over what you want to click. Want to doubleclick and open something, just hold down the FN key on your keyboard and a series of pop-up icons will appear. Just click on the double dot and the program will double click for you. Want to move a window, hold down the same FN key and select the second icon...then move your window. It's really easy. You can adjust the speed at which the click will take place after pausing your mouse. Just be aware where your mouse is at all times so you aren't accidentally opening windows randomly. Our hands have not been designed to click some 10,000 times a day. Even those without injury should use this to prevent damage and exhaustion. I couldn't work or use a computer without this wonderful program.
100% Necesarry For Long Computer Use - In combination with a trackball, I’ve reduced wrist strain considerably with this and Dwellclick. If you notice wrist pains, don’t make yourself worry anymore and just get this already.
