    "This Application is AWESOME!!!! Get It Now!"

    June 1, 2007  |   By psawyer

    Version: DragThing 5.8.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    As a Mac user, I HATE the dock. Drag Thing Allows me to create my own multiple drawers anywhere with ease. The best part is you can have 1 "dock" with multiple tabs for various categories. I've got 1 doc with tabs for Regular Apps, Creative Apps, My media, Client media, everyday bookmarks, etc. It is fully customizable with different themes, transparency, etc. It is the best utility application I own. If you want to get organized, then Drag Thing is the one for you. I never review these apps but I have to on this one. If there were 10 stars, I'd give it that!

    I love Dragthing and I really respect the developer. He makes a great product and takes good care of it with regular updates. He is also responsive on the Dragthing forum.

    "Giant Bag of Tricks!"

    April 20, 2007  |   By james_sorenson

    Version: DragThing 5.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I love how I can reconfigure this thing to fit my mood. Any color, style, position, mode, method, etc!
    However, the REAL gem is the global hotkey and applescript support! Create a hidden dock full of your favorite apps and scripts and then assign them global hot-keys for starting, switching, and even opening finder items with specific apps.
    CTRL-CMD-T: Open/Switch to Text Wrangler.
    CTRL-OPT-CMD-T: Open finder item in Text Wrangler.
    CTRL-CMD-S: (Applescript) Make stickie from copied item without leaving app.
    etc...
    Seriously, this application will truly improve your speed on the desktop. If you own an iBook/Macbook, then you NEED this app. Take some time, set it up right, put in some choice hot-keys, and then discover what it's like to have all your applications within instant access without mushing all day with the track-pad! Easily one of the best shareware apps out there.
    - Jim

    "This App Rocks!"

    I have never had an application that worked as good as this one. I've got docks all over the place and this app has never crashed, stalled, leaked or anything. If you want an alternative to the Mac Dock (which I think really sucks) then get this one...you'll be glad you did!

    "Outstanding, really"

    Version: DragThing 5.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    A truly outstanding app that lets you dock everything you need -- no newfangled messing with the menu bar, no silly "type a few characters to bring up what you want," just a good dock replacement/additive that's as flexible as you could ever want. I love the new themes, especially "By Your Command" and "Imperial March." The developer is also a peach, always listens and replies to input and updates frequently.

    "Responsive developer, must-have desktop app"

    January 15, 2007  |   By terrespencer

    Version: DragThing 5.7.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I recently had a conflict with Unsanity's APE and DragThing. (APE was having conflicts with just about every important app on my machine) I sent one email to DragThing and at least a dozen to Unsanity. DragThing responded and supported me through a completely satisfactory resolution.

    The program is useful, fun and adds great features to my desktop. Having such great support from the developer makes this an outstanding, must-have choice for all Mac users.

    Once you have tried it, you will wonder how you did without it.

    "Indispensable - None Better"

    December 14, 2006  |   By tech8

    Version: DragThing 5.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I was a user of PowerBar Pro under System 8-9 and since the first version of DragThing for OS X it's been on my desktop ever since.

    Almost the only time I ever go to the dock is to relaunch DragThing if I've quit it for some reason. It's actually the only app that I've added to the dock.

    A must-have in my book.
