"Love this product great to use"

December 03, 2010  |  By tmg_hoh

 |  Version: DockView 1.54

Pros

makes navigating on the desktop very easy

Cons

NO cons with the product.

Summary

They only accept payment via Paypal and as such I removed it off my system. I will not use Paypal VERY expensive for the seller and a HUGE invasion of privacy to the end user.

If they accepted CC as I suggested in a letter to them they would increase their sales of this GREAT product

"By far the best of these utilities."

November 20, 2010  |  By drwebmail

 |  Version: DockView 1.53

Pros

Super stable, very active and responsive developer with more features coming! Shows the number of windows open for an app which is very helpful.

Cons

none that I can think of...

Summary

This thing is very cheap, light on resources and I use it daily. Hyper Dock is temporarily free and way less stable. Can preview minimized windows for applications and clicking on the preview opens them which is great.

"Good but not the best"

November 13, 2010  |  By gabfall

 |  Version: DockView 1.53

Pros

Gives you a good preview of whats going on on your open applications. Control of iTunes with mouse over. Check events on iCal.

Cons

Freezes constantly. If not purchased, annoying message appears constantly.

Summary

Good program for dock previewing but i strongly recommend HyperDock which is free and has better function.

"A refreshing expansion on OSX's core navigator."

September 08, 2010  |  By Eddyspeeder

 |  Version: Dock View 1.18

Pros

Although Windows converts will most likely be the ones who embrace this feature the quickest, I myself was also excited about the idea. It is designed very well, and has app-specific functions (play controls for iTunes). I bought a licence right away

Cons

As the application is in its early stages, some features still could be expanded upon. Development continues at a high rate. There are frequent updates (I believe three or four only in the past week), but the updater is non-invasive.

Summary

Although I left the Windows platform well before Vista came out, I do know that since Vista a hover over the taskbar would show thumbnail views of running windows to make navigation easier. DockView brings that feature to OSX, so for some it will be a reconciliation, while for others (like me) it is a welcome addition to the Dock.

I personally found the original thumbnail size of DockView to be way too large, but fortunately the settings allow you to customize the size. That is actually the power of this application: it looks very simple on the outside, but there are many settings you can control in the Preferences window. Usually I think twice before I buy an application, but this time I gladly paid the $8 for this one.

"Has problems."

September 03, 2010  |  By fredfass

 |  Version: Dock View 1.12

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Nice idea, but this program needs more work. When I hover my cursor over an application icon using command-tab the window previews momentarily flicker on and off, making it difficult to select a preview. When I try to select a preview it doesn't activate the selected window. Computer: Mac Pro, 10.6.4.
