[prMac.com] Birmingham, United Kingdom - Kapeli today is pleased to announce iClap 1.0, its second Mac App Store-exclusive application. iClap is Kapeli's latest application, which allows Snow Leopard users to control their Mac by clapping. iClap tracks the input volume of user's computers and uses it to determine when someone claps their hands. When a clap is detected, a set of predefined actions is performed.
The following actions are supported:
* Open Finder
* Hide All Applications
* Activate Screensaver
* Get New Mail
* Play iTunes
* Play VLC
* Play QuickTime
* Open Any Application, File or Script
iClap was designed to bring convenience in any Mac user's life, during those times when you'd like to control your Mac from a small distance, when you want it to start playing your favorite playlist without having to walk all the way to your computer. With iClap installed, as soon as you enter your home, you can clap your hands twice and iClap will launch your favorite applications, start playing iTunes and check for any new emails. With iClap, you can also surprise and impress your friends.
* Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later
* 1.7 MB
Pricing and Availability:
iClap 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Entertainment category.
