Well..., Clickster works and it is different from other music file search engines; albeit, mp3 files only. I just can't see using Clickster for anything more than a fast file listen or a quick download. The file info is practically non-existent! The file info that is displayed is cryptic and tells me nothing about the music file. The available mp3 files is certainly limited, to say the least! I tried searching several known music files, and found very few versions of the songs that even resembled the requested music file! But, Clickster does have an embedded mp3 player that sounds reasonably decent. Bottom line, Clickster will not replace Limewire on my PC!
The software developer responded to this review on Oct 01, 2007:
Hello and thanks for your thoughts. I m sorry to read of your overall disappointment of Clickster. In response I can only say that I will continue working on this application to make it better. As for seeking to replace Limewire, that was never one of Clickster`s aims. I wouldn t want it to replace anything, it s just about choice and for me, Clickster was and is a fun project to work on. Besides, Limewire is owned by a large multinational company with whole teams of programmers and the financial recourses to make anything happen. With Clickster, it s just no-money-me and so, unless Hell freezes over, Osama bin Laden becomes the next President of the USA and my bipolar goes into lightspeed-mania, I really don`t think I will ever come close to competing with Limewire? Anyway, I m sorry you were disappointed, but I m grateful for your honesty and your comments will encourage me to continue developing a better product; one that meets all expectations...or as near to that as I can. A new version will be along towards the end of October; you may want to give it a boot?
