SliderDock

CNET 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.

    "Nice look, but sometimes a little buggy"

    August 9, 2010  |   By steen_cloud

    Version: SliderDock 1.16

    Pros

    Nice stylish look and animation
    Shortcut keys (and customizable)

    Cons

    Sometimes messes up when new icons are added.
    Dock's appearance also gets messed after getting covered by other app for a long time (but can be fixed by clicking on any of its icons).
    Crashes on occassion as well.

    Summary

    It's a good app with a nice look. But it gets buggy from time to time for me at least and it's somewhat annoying.

    "Like the ease of use and look !"

    May 23, 2010  |   By NikRik

    Version: SliderDock 1.16

    Pros

    I like that you can place those icons of the apps you mostly use in Slider Dock and set your desktop properties to not show desktop shortcuts in display properties ! Then you can easily chose to hide or show Slider Dock when needed !

    Cons

    A little confusion at first on setting up Slider Dock ,nothing a little reading and playing around with the settings did not solve !

    Summary

    Basicially Slider Dock gives you Desktop a nice clean look and a adavanced interface in using shortcuts. For somone like me who's desktop was clutered with to many shortcuts this was a great find !
