Editors' review

SliderDock offers to help users organize and access several programs on the fly. With its smooth menu and its simplicity, SliderDock ensures that anyone can save time and effort by using it.

The program's interface is easy to operate since it only requires the most basic of mouse functions. In fact, it reminded us heavily of a Mac's lower scrolling mechanism, which brings program icons to the foreground. SliderDock appears as a little onscreen bubble that you drag your favorite program icons into. SliderDock simply creates a new shortcut for each program within the bubble, while the original icons stay in place. You simply double-click an icon in SliderDock, and the target program opens and functions just like it normally does. Once you've populated SliderDock with icons, you can scroll through all of your choices using your mouse wheel. SliderDock is sensitive to scrolling speed, and we soon felt in complete control. It's easy to move forward and backward within SliderDock. The program also helps save time with customizable hot keys. You can assign any of SliderDock's functions to a hotkey, which is a great advantage for operating in a hurry. SliderDock is sure to save time for anyone who must frequently shift from a program screen to the desktop to open more programs. SliderDock makes every effort to maximize your computer efficiency by saving you time and effort on the things you do most.

SliderDock is a free program. Its simple operation and timesaving functions earn our high recommendation.

    "Good enough for now"

    February 23, 2013   |   By Wabakey

    Version: SliderDock 1.22

    Pros

    Easy to use and setup

    Cons

    It is plain and doesn't have a lot of options.

    Summary

    This dock will work for now but, once I have the time to figure out how another dock that I liked works, this one will be uninstalled.

    "best application launcher ive used yet"

    April 08, 2012   |   By Jbone1337

    Version: SliderDock 1.22

    Pros

    -VERY light on system resources. (uses almost no cpu usage while active, and only like 20MB of ram while active, 5MB while hidden)
    -Easy to use and set up
    -Support for win7 x64
    -FREE!

    Cons

    -Not too customizable

    Summary

    As to other reviews, they seem to be outdated.
    As i uninstalled just fine with the normal uninstaller (completely clean install, nothing in program files, %program data%, %appdata%, or registry was left over after un-install).


    But this dock works great, does just what i need it to (allows me to keep desktop free of clutter, while able to quickly launch applications, scripts, etc with a few clicks).


    I have tried rocket dock (doesnt support x64), objectdock free (it has some problems launching 64bit programs, even after changing target address, and also it has very poor hide functionality as well as uses a decent bit of resources), and nexus free which i just remember i hated.
