    "Overly simple and a bit quirky"

    April 14, 2009  |   By An_Onuma

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    The options are extremely simplified...perhaps even a bit too much so. Installed Clean and uninstalled clean.

    Cons

    Overly simplistic options. Not enough hands-on control. After dragging one icon off the bar for deletion the program froze.

    Summary

    If you want simple, this is the program for you. There are better free alternatives in my opinion. The one I would recommend is RocketDock. However, if you don't want more control over your docks appearance or just don't want to spend some time personalizing a quick launch program, give MobyDock a try.

    "Stay away unless you don't mind Wrecking your PC"

    January 31, 2009  |   By SwitchBlade4u

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    FREE trouble stay away.! if you value your computer.!

    Cons

    keeps crashing!

    ObjectDock is a much better alturnative, together with RocketDock, both FREE and FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE that work well and don't cuz any problems with the OS Registry.

    Summary

    "ObjectDock" is a much better alturnative, together with "RocketDock", both FREE and FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE that work well and don't cuz any problems with the OS Registry.

    these 2 above programmes are the best available.!

    "Good Enough"

    June 27, 2007  |   By jymmsom

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    I'm running rocketdock, rkDock, and MobyDock with renamed shortcuts to keep desktop clear. You can scale this down enough to just being a toolbar, which is all I wanted. Saves memory, processing time, etc. You can individually rename text that will pop up when highlighting each icon which is GREAT for keeping track of folder links (you can also leave that field blank). Lots of customization for those who just want to clear up desktops cluttered with shortcuts, default is intensive and pretty but you can scale it back to just being an icon tray and load only when you click the mobydock shortcut. This is running on Vista, as well as the others, perfectly. You can also redirect icons and it appears there is some scripting functionality for command lines but I haven't played with that.

    Cons

    Rocket dock seems 'slightly' faster and is the one I use as a toolbar at boot up. You cannot simply make repeat mobydock1, mobydock2, etc directories with different short cuts and have several different docks as far as I'm aware. You cannot disable all icon labels at once but have to do them individually (you can with rocket dock).

    RkDock (yzDock?) is my least favorite. There are several items you cannot remove and it seems to be the slowest to load.

    You have to pay to have multiple docks up at once but it IS possible which is a very nice feature if you didn't mind spending the money. Otherwise, if you need more than one, use all three- don't have more than one load at boot, rename them to something recognizable (the shortcuts), and position them to load on different parts of the screen (right, bottom, top) so that you can have all three up at once when need be.

    "Not a good choice."

    September 2, 2006  |   By Starwarskid

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    It's free...

    Cons

    It's too power hungry and has minimalistic performance. If you want a dock, and don't want to use up a lot of resourses, Aqua Dock is a lot better than this. The zoom effect and CPU usage is better. If you want a GREAT dock and don't mind it using up some CPU, then get ObjectDock. OD is the best dock around, but Aqua Dock is light on CPU and better than Moby Dock. Of course, this is just my opinion.

    "A great dockbar and free! Its not dead YET!"

    January 25, 2006  |   By CableguyTK

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    Its free.

    It mimics the OSX Dock Bar very well.

    Has some nice features the other dock bars don't have.

    Cons

    Development, for all intents and purposes, has stopped. This version available on Download.com was released November 2003.

    Program requires at least DirectX 9.0b.

    "Excelent software, it really looks like the OS X launchbar!"

    April 22, 2005  |   By Mauricio Estrella

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    Excelent software, it really looks like the OS X launchbar! Great look, fast, very easy to install and configure.

    Cons

    It crashes in some drag & drop operations, but editing "items.ini" file solves the problem.

    "Pretty Good"

    April 12, 2005  |   By afrobat

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    Mobydock is very customizable. There are a lot of functions. I made mobydock look like the mac os x dock.

    Cons

    It crashes a lot when you first install it. However, it should stop after restarting your computer once or twice.

    "It's Great"

    March 30, 2005  |   By Afrodude

    Version: MobyDock 0.87b

    Pros

    It's extremely customizable with a lot of different options to change it to your liking. I've customized my dock so that it looks like the mac docks.

    Cons

    It is a bit buggy at first. However, if you leave it on your computer and constantly use it, after around 2 restarts, it should start working properly.
