ClickDummy is a tool for anyone who needs to share website, application or mobile application mockups with others. This application offers an online workspace where teams can meet virtually to discuss website development and they can navigate through the potential site without having to publish it. There are feedback functions available such as comments and tags. The mockup prototype is provided a URL which will not pop up on any search engines and will only be available to the user and those who are provided the URL by the user.
ClickDummy is developed by the US company Skookum Digitial Works. Skookum is based in North Carolina and was established in 2005. Skookum focuses on making web applications for businesses. Skookum has working relationships with over 650 major companies and as of August 2011, they had 18 employees.
In March 2011, Skookum explained that their recent launch of ClickDummy was one of the first systems to use Node.js as a platform while using the full feature set that Node.js has to offer.
There are plenty of mockup design and sharing applications on the Internet today. There are even some decent free ones. The nice thing about ClickDummy is that it is 100% free and that if a web developer wants to share their project with clients, those clients do not need to register for a ClickDummy account in order to view it.
ClickDummy is pretty intuitive. Inserting comments and feedback is simple. On the other hand, their demo that is available online is a bit cluttered and their Help and FAQ sections do not seem to be fully developed.
Registration is very easy. ClickDummy only requests a user's name, email and password in order to get started.
It is free.
ClickDummy is recommended for web and application developers who need an easy way to share their work and get feedback from other users or clients. This application is particularly useful for developing content for non-tech clients who may have an idea of what they want accomplished but require a visual aid to express it. It is extremely intuitive which makes using it with others easy.
