Editors' Review

Simple Clicker claims to offer users an easier way to click though programs. While it does perform its auto-clicking task, we found this program virtually pointless and, worse, completely unhelpful, even disastrously so.

Its interface, while simple to operate, provides no onscreen navigation and was not particularly intuitive. Its Help file was equally sparse and actually left the program's main functionality undefined. Simple Clicker's interface only features a START and STOP button and a speed slider bar. After some experimenting, we realized this program imitates a user constantly clicking a mouse so that whatever the cursor is over is automatically clicked. Since clicking your mouse isn't really that difficult, it seems the program is designed for use when ordinary mousing isn't possible, such as when disabilities are involved. However, it's too hard for anyone to use. The worst part was when we turned the speed up, it imitated rapid, incessant mouse clicking. It was going so fast we were unable to turn it off and accidentally opened up dozens of programs, documents, and links as our mouse scurried across the screen. We had to manually shut down the computer because Simple Clicker's runaway mouse-clicks rendered it essentially inoperable. The program offers no special features, though a tutorial might have identified some practical uses for this program. Unfortunately, Simple Clicker was one horrific disappointment after another.

Simple Clicker is freeware. It comes as a compressed file. Since its functions are useless and problematic and even potentially damaging, we can't recommend it.
