"Not bad, just not outstanding either"

January 23, 2006  |  By chrisdisregard

 |  Version: SlashDock 2.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Worked decently enough for the first day, after that though it just said Application Not Responding when I clicked on it. The only real support seems to be through email, no troubleshooting FAQs or anything, so I just downloaded a different reader instead. The biggest plus is that it would work in Tiger.

Drawbacks:
- Forces the use of some fairly terrible icons
- New/Updated notification didn't seem to work. It would show an article new one minute, not new the next, and then new again a while later.
- Adding/Organizing the feed list was a little tedious, but still workable.

Overall it seems to be one of the few simple dock/menu readers that'll work on Tiger and it does a decent job. It just wasn't outstanding enough for me to bother to try and fix.

"The first app I always make sure is installed"

October 19, 2003  |  By gregorypierce

 |  Version: SlashDock 2.3.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As a developer I end up restaging my machine all the time (reformat, reinstall). Because of this there are few applications that I bother to have installed on ever refresh - but Slashdock is most certainly one of the first applications I install. It keeps me up to date with what's going on in the world and is the perfect dock application. While others try to use other larger more 'bloated' applications to do the job, this one is really all you need.

"Great RSS client"

July 28, 2003  |  By nickzman

 |  Version: SlashDock 2.3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
SlashDock continues to be my favorite RSS client. My only little complaint is it appears to be polling the CPU for some reason, as it's constantly using the CPU even when nothing's getting updated, but other than that, it's great!
