Editors' Review

+

If you like the interface of the Mac OS but are stuck using a Windows machine, this little app from Stardock can help--if only very slightly. The premise behind ObjectDock is very simple: it adds an animated, Mac-inspired dock to your desktop that provides easy access to useful shortcuts and serves to replace your taskbar (if you so choose).

The ObjectDock install is quick and light, and the program is extremely easy to set up. A simple settings menu lets you choose how many items you want on the dock, where it is positioned, and whether you want zoom enabled. You can also adjust the size, style, and color as well as set it to autohide or remain on top.

In addition, the free version of ObjectDock includes various "docklets" (Stardock's term for widgets) that can provide quick access to weather, time, and so on. For even more features, there's an option to upgrade to the Plus version for $9.99. It includes the ability to add multiple docks, creates tabbed docks in Windows 7 and 8, and offers improved task switching.

Very similar to rk launcher but havent used long enough to find many cons

"Worst Dock-tool ever."

December 26, 2013  |  By Lesslog

 |  Version: ObjectDock 2.10

Pros

Peaceful UI, looks good from a far.

Cons

Isn't a freeware software. It's the same as the other Dock software.

"Frustrating"

December 04, 2013  |  By retreaded

 |  Version: ObjectDock 2.10

Pros

Looks Cool, Responds well

Cons

Always gets in the way of mouse commands. I know that it is easily hidden, but the double action (hide and then asking if you want to hide, is frustrating when one is in a hurry and busy with a project.
If the dock involved could be slid along to clear the required click command, it would be great.

Summary

It is OK but it is such a pest I have removed it. Cute and decorative, pretty and ornimental, but useless as it is, for serious work.

"no XP, no good."

November 24, 2013  |  By maryann_30

 |  Version: ObjectDock 2.10

Pros

Used to be good.

Cons

Stardock is not the universe authority. They will not dictate to me when I am going to upgrade to Win7. No one is asking for something they did not have before, they had XP support, but dropped it. So, now we follow.

Summary

Stardock needs to withdraw.

Good bye Objectdock.
