Editors' Review

+

Jealous of that slick Mac interface? Check out ObjectDock, a free utility that replaces the Windows Taskbar with a colorful, animated dock similar to the taskbar in Mac OS X.

ObjectDock displays icons for currently running applications and can hold quick-launch icons for your favorite programs. As you pass the cursor over each icon, ObjectDock magnifies it and displays relevant information, helping you find what you need even when you're running several programs at once. An attractive clock rounds out the toolbar. The tiny utility comes with a dozen attractive skins, and users with slow computers can reduce the animation quality to increase speed.

There is one major drawback: the lack of a system tray. There is a free, imperfect docklet plug-in available from a third-party provider that valiantly tries to remedy the problem, although it's a bit buggy. You can also upgrade to the Plus edition for $20, which includes system tray support, tabbed docks, support for multiple docks and multiple monitors, and other features.

If you're dissatisfied with the Windows Taskbar or just want to spice up your Desktop, ObjectDock makes a very good, no-risk choice.

It's not the most usefull gadget.

My desktop feels naked without.

"Not Good enough"

September 24, 2010  |  By adarshajoisa

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.90 build 536

Pros

The animations and appearance are good

Cons

Not Customizable enough. Couldn't add shortcuts to folders. The links to my pictures and my music are not the music and picture library in win 7.

Summary

Not an impressive dock. If you are expecting something great like the Mac dock, don't download this.

"It looks good, but not all it seems."

September 02, 2010  |  By ChrisMSMB

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.90 build 536

Pros

I like the feature it gives with the Mac toolbar. Makes it fun and unique to play around with.

Cons

Once you install it and then shut your computer off, your comput crashes and must do a system restore - twice if neccessary.

Summary

If this product would have not crashed my computer, then I would definitely like it more. Install this software at your own risk.
