Editors' Review

Where most other docks fail, RocketDock soars. The Mac-style program dock and launcher for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista has it all, from a smooth installation to flawless icon transitions and an unobtrusive footprint.

The app is loaded with options. The dock can live on any of the four edges of your monitor, you can set it to always be on top, on bottom, autohide, or be ever-present. It comes with more than 20 skins; fonts and colors are fully customizable, as is the icon order; and you can choose which icons are displayed, independent of the program's actual icon. RocketDock's publisher is also growing a community around the program, and the app's Web site has areas where you can download more icons, widgets, and skins to enhance and further customize your experience.

One drawback of the program is that the main settings menu is not where you go to add in and configure these extras. Instead, they're accessible from a secondary settings menu available only by right-clicking on the dock itself. It's frustrating, but not a major problem, and hopefully can be addressed in future updates.

"I like it. Easy, free, handy."

May 29, 2008  |  By TheIllusion

 |  Version: RocketDock 1.3.5

Pros

Just drop your fave program icons, configure, autohide it, autohide Win taskbar, then install Launchy and desktop is yours.

Cons

Cons or not. But it will run smoothly, if you don't use max quality and if you configure "useless" features... e.g. animations, etc

"Best Out there "

May 19, 2008  |  By gslovesraiders

 |  Version: RocketDock 1.3.5

Pros

I've tryed the other docks and i have to say that this is the best one. One main reason is that it is faster than Object Dock. Also if you go on there website you can get add-on for it, which are pretty cool. Also it is very customizable.

Cons

I think that they should include a feature which is in Object Dock which is to get rid of the windows bar if you wanted to, but its still ok.

Pros

The software does what it says, and then some. There are awesome plug-ins, such as Stacks, and there are skins like OS X Leopard and such.

Cons

The software takes a while to load the icon settings.
