Despite the fact that Mac OS X comes with a very good, built-in screenshot tool, there are still some limitations to it when it comes to automated screen-taking. Click for Mac allows the user to take screenshots periodically, but it also comes with some limitations.
Available as freeware, the program allows the user to set a timer to take screenshots automatically every few minutes. The installation is a simple drag-and-drop process and the user interface is very straightforward and intuitive. New users will enjoy the short learning curve of the app. However, the drawback is the lack of customization as the app only allows you to set the timer up to a maximum of 10 minutes and the default location for saved screenshots is fixed and cannot be changed. One of our least favorite features of Click for Mac is that the app will include a shortcut to take screenshots by pressing the CMD and ALT keys, which will quite often clash with the shortcuts of other apps, and there's no option to turn the feature off. However, the app does provide an option to include a secondary display when taking a screenshot, which is pretty neat.
With some minor drawbacks, Click for Mac offers a free, easy, and functional solution for your screen-taking needs. This app may come in handy if you are looking for a way to take screenshots automatically.
Click was developed to help you make screenshots. Although standard shortcuts prevent you from making screenshots while watching a DVD movie, this is not a problem for Click. You can take a screenshot manually by pressing Option-Command keys and also select automatic operation where a screenshot is taken periodically (one second to 10 minutes). You can select whether or not you want to hear a shutter click when screenshots are taken. Use VLC, not Apple's DVD Player, if checkerboard pattern is seen while playing DVD. Control Panel's location and settings (except for Automatic Screenshot checkbox checked state) are saved between sessions. Click may be used with one or two displays. Click is freeware.
